Under some realistic condition, the conditional risk premium of an asset is equal to its conditional market beta times the conditional risk premium of the market (Merton, 1972). We empirically test this CAPM relationship using beta-sorted portfolios, size-and-book-to-market sorted portfolios, and industry portfolios. We show that regressing an asset excess return onto the product of its conditional beta and the market excess return yields an R2 of about 80%, an intercept of zero, and a slope of one. These results provide strong evidence that a single factor explains both the level and the variation in the cross-section of returns.

The Visual Judgment of Performance

Social judgments and impressions are often made on the basis of minimal information. In the domain of music, people consistently report that the most important source of information in evaluating performance is sound; nonetheless, a first set of experiments demonstrated that people actually rely on visual information when making judgments about music performance. These findings were extended through additional sets of studies elaborating on the generalizability and persistence of these effects, such as in the judgment of entrepreneurial pitch competitions, analyst forecasts of firm performance, and in service operations in the food industry. Works in progress discuss the role of expertise in decision making and implications for organizational performance.
