The tail condition is given to prevent the diversifying weight from collapsing too soon. 2. The notation N → ∞ represents the numbers of assets N will grow sufficiently large. 4: Let W be a compact subspace of 2 space endowed with the 2 norm that for any y = (y1 , y2 , · · · ) ∈ 2 , ∞ 2 i=1 yi < ∞, where W consists of all real bounded sequences of nondegenerated deterministic feasible weights ω, such that / o2 , where o2 contains sequences ω ≡ {ωi }i=1,2,··· ∈ 2 and ω ∈ {ωi }i=1,2,··· with finitely many nonzero weights.

Or, more technically instead, various choices over the benchmark returns in equation (8) may cause the serial dependence, too. Notice that the claim is not to say, there is no such serial dependence in the long-run abnoraml returns at all. However, caution must be applied to the data stream first, prior to further elaborations or modellings. 1 provides the Ljung-Box Q test statistics for the null hypothesis of white noise. This shows that the constructed series are subject to significant serial dependence.

Fortunately, there is no statistically significant evidence in showing that the wind condition can predict the individual stock returns. Otherwise, if there is such a predictability, should one also include this variable as a systematic component in the specification of expected returns? Predictability of included variables does not necessarily imply nondiversifiability. Hence, conventional applications with model selection criteria such as information criteria with prediction errors do not necessarily identify the systematic components for the asset pricing entirely unless additional criteria for nondiversifiability of included variable(s) are attached.
