Program Description

Dr. Walker's webinar compares the Butler-Pinkerton Model (BPM), the Build-Up Method, and the Adjusted Capital Asset Pricing Model (A-CAPM). He evaluates the reliability of each model by considering the four desirable properties of estimators: unbiased, efficiency, minimum mean-square error, and consistency. Dr. Walker illustrates a procedure for testing whether historical beta is a good estimator of future beta. He concludes that the Build-Up and A-CAPM models are likely to have a lower potential error than the BPM.
