Ok I have the solution: I used the Fama-Macbeth regression commmand xtfmb (net search xtfmb). The procedure is as follows: In the first step, for each single time period a cross-sectional regression is performed. Then, in the second step, the final coefficient estimates are obtained as the average of the first step coefficient estimates. I just tried to do this with my dataset with regression equation: xtfmb market_return smb hml wml but But when he gives me the regression output hey says variable coefficient = 0 and standard error omitted? -------- Original-Nachricht -------- > Datum: Fri, 10 Aug 2012 14:27:55 +0200 > Von: "felix kreppel" <felix.kreppel@gmx.de> > An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Betreff: Re: Re: st: Regression with different firms > Thank you for your answer. > > My original empirical analysis works as follows: > > I am estimating a 4-Factor Model (with 4 factors: SMB, market_return, HML, > WML which are the same for all firms) augmented by a fifth explanatory > variable (which influence I want to evaluate) which is calculated as the > average weekly standard deviation of excess return 12 months prior to month t > for each firm: > > return_i_t=a*market_return_t+b*SMB_t+c*HML_t+d*WML_t+e*std_i_t > > where t indicates the month and i indicates the firm over a sample period > of 25 years. > > What I did so far to solve my regression problem was to average all firm > returns to an equally weighted index and also averaged all the previous > volatilities to an equally weighted index and then estimated the following > regression > > return_t=a*market_return_t+b*SMB_t+c*HML_t+d*WML_t+e*std_t > > with the command: newey return market_return smb hml wml std, lag(4) to > address the serial correlation in the error terms. > > I do not know, however, if this approach works.
