Evans Jadotte <evans.jadotte@uab.es> : What's z in (z-xb-...) below? If you are calculating an estimate of e in the numerator, and dividing by the estimate of the SD of e, then you are calculating the Z score of the idiosyncratic error, and Phi(Z). What is this for? Can you provide refs for what "some books suggest" ?
