澳大利亚莫纳什大学Prof. Heather Anderson特邀报告

题目:High-Dimensional Predictive Regression in the Presence of Cointegration

摘要:

We propose a Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator (LASSO) estimator of a predictive regression in which stock returns are conditioned on a large set of lagged covariates, some of which are highly persistent and potentially cointegrated. We establish the asymptotic properties of the proposed LASSO estimator and validate our theoretical findings using simulation studies. The application of this proposed LASSO approach to forecasting stock returns suggests that a cointegrating relationship among the persistent predictors leads to a significant improvement in the prediction of stock returns over various competing forecasting methods with respect to mean squared error.

题目: Global Temperatures and

 

Green House Gases – A Common Features Approach

摘要:

Despite the difficulty in determining the exact nature of trend in global temperatures, we can establish that the trend in global temperatures and green house gases is common. We then estimate the long-run relationship between global temperatures and green house gases and provide theoretically justified measures of confidence in our estimates. We explore the direction of causation in this relationship and compare our results with the existing results in the literature.
