Arthur, One simple approach would be to test a = 0, b = 0, and c = 0 separately, each within its own analysis, and apply the Bonferroni correction, so that significance on the individual test requires a P-value < alpha/3. You didn't give the details of the analysis, but it doesn't look as if you're considering three models: unconstrained a, b, and c; a = b = c, but not further constrained; and a = b = c = 0. The suggestion of stacking y1, y2, and y3 into a column vector seems to be headed toward a multiple regression (in which the "design" matrix also stacks x1 and x2 for each of the y's) and then perhaps a likelihood-ratio test. It may be appropriate (or necessary) to take into account correlation among y1, y2, and y3; that would turn the analysis into a multivariate regression with (y1, y2, y3) as the vector dependent variable. Even without correlation, y1, y2, and y3 may not have the same variance. The fact that "3" is actually 25 makes all of this more "interesting." And maybe your asset-pricing model involves other factors besides x2. The result of using the Bonferroni correction might be that x1 makes a significant contribution in some portfolios and not others. I would think that is worth knowing about. I'm not familiar with portfolio analysis, so I'm not sure what it means to say that "x1 is not a priced factor." Remember that the coefficient of x1 tells you about the contribution of x1 after adjusting for the contribution of x2 (and the contributions of the other predictors, if any, in the model). Thus, a model with 0 as the coefficient of x1 corresponds to saying that x1 makes no additional contribution. I hope this discussion helps.
