ciency and the CAPM cannot
be tested separately, i.e., tests of CAPM is always a joint test of ME ±
CAPM.
Roll argues that if any expost mean variance e
ﬃ
cient portfolio is selected
as the market portfolio and betas are computed using this as the market
proxy, then the following must hold. Where
P
is the proxy for the market
portfolio,
r
p
is the expected return on the proxy for the market portfolio,
β
ip
is the beta for security i with the proxy market portfolio, and
r
zp
is
the minimum variance portfolio that has a zero beta with the market proxy
portfolio.
