1 Estimating a market model: Step-by-step Prepared by Pamela Peterson Drake Florida Atlantic University The purpose of this document is to guide you through the process of estimating a market model for the purpose of estimating the beta of a stock. The beta of a stock is the slope coefficient in the following equation: r it = α + β r mt t = 1,2,, T where r it is the return on stock i in period t and r mt is the return on the market in period t. Some of the more challenging elements of this process is gathering the necessary data and then putting it in a form that allows us to use Microsoft Excel to estimate the regression. In this example, I will demonstrate how to estimate the beta of Microsoft stock using sixty months of returns. Contents: 1. Obtaining stock prices and dividends Calculating returns on the stock Obtaining returns on a market index Estimating the market model Determining the growth in value Obtaining stock prices and dividends There are many sources of downloadable stock prices on the Internet. One such source is Yahoo! Finance. There are several paths to the stock prices and I will demonstrate one of these paths for you. Using the main page of Yahoo! Finance, type in the ticker symbol of the stock of interest into the Enter Symbol(s) box and click on GO: 1

2 This will produce the current day s information on the stock s trading, along with links to company and industry specific information. In the left-most menu, click on Historical Prices. Now we specify the information that we need, which is monthly prices. Ideally, we want to estimate the market model using at least sixty monthly returns. This means that we need sixty-one months of prices. Specifying the start and end date, We then Get Prices. We see the prices and dividends, starting with the most recent period. Because we don t want to retype all this ourselves, we click on the link in the lower portion of this page to Download To Spreadsheet: We then are given a choice to Open or Save: 2

3 Choosing Save, I then specified the name as msft. I now have a common-separated-value (.csv) file named msft.csv. When I open this file in Microsoft Excel, I now see the data as follows: For purposes of calculations and graphing, it is easier to have the data sorted in chronological order (instead of reverse chronological order), so I highlight the rows 2 through 61 and then use Excel commands of Data -- Sort: 3

4 and sort by date: I can use the same Yahoo! Finance page to get the dividends as well by selecting the Dividends Only choice. This produces a list of cash dividends over the same period: This produces the list of dividends as follows: 4

6 Copying this cell s formula to the remaining cells in column I, we then have the returns on MSFT for each month for sixty months. 3. Obtaining returns on a market index This is actually a tough part of the calculation. It is easy to retrieve the level of an index, say the S&P 500, but it is difficult to find the corresponding dividends on the index. Because dividends can be a significant part of the return, we don t want to leave them out. One of the few places on the Internet where we can find the return on the S&P 500 index that includes dividends is at Standard & Poor s site. 2 This is a downloadable spreadsheet simply Save the file when prompted: 2 I have found that Internet Explorer will often freeze when I try to open an Excel file from such an option. It seems to work well to save the file first and then open it in Excel. 6

7 Using the same method to sort the data as we used previously, I sort the data: 4. Estimating the market model We now have data in two workbooks: msft.xls and MONTHLY.xls. But we need the data in one worksheet. Do accomplish this, I ll go into my msft.xls worksheet, Insert Worksheet, and then copy what I need from MONTHLY.xls (the 1-month total return for each month) to msft.xls, which will be the returns from September 2000 through August 2005 (sixty months): 3 3 If you are copying a value from a worksheet that was computed in that worksheet (as opposed to a value simply typed in), when you copy and then paste the value into the new worksheet, you need to specify Edit -- Paste-special and check the Values option. 7

8 The market model is the regression of the returns on the stock against the return on the market. Therefore, I use the Microsoft Excel Tools Data Analysis and select Regression: I then need to specify the Y and X variables, which I do by clicking on the worksheet icon in the selection boxes and then highlighting the cells in the worksheet: When I select OK, I end up with a regression output as a new worksheet: 8

9 The slope coefficient, beta, is Rounding to three decimal places, the equation is r it = r mt We can see this relationship by graphing the returns. To prepare for the charting, I created a new worksheet by copying the market model data worksheet [Edit Move or Copy Sheet Create a copy] and then reordered the return columns so the returns on the market (the X axis) are listed first and then the returns on MSFT (Y-Axis). Then Highlight the data (the cells B5:c64) Insert Chart -- XY (Scatter) I placed the chart on the same worksheet as the plotting data (sheet named plotting). With only specifying the X and Y titles and removing the legend (which is meaningless in this type of chart), I have the following: 9

10 which is not very easy to interpret. Fixing up the graph (by double-clicking what I want to fix the formatting on and then specifying it to my preferences, I end up with the following graph, including the trendline: 50% 40% 30% Return on MSFT 20% 10% 0% -10% -20% -30% -20% -10% 0% 10% 20% Return on the S&P Determining the growth in value We have captured the relation between Microsoft s stock returns and those of the S&P 500 using regression, arriving at a security beta of Another way of comparing the two investments is by 10

11 looking at wealth changes from each investment. To do this, we use the returns that we have already calculated and then use compounding to look at the growth in value over this same period. First, we need to create another worksheet, so we will again Edit Move or copy worksheet Create a copy from our market model data worksheet to create the new worksheet we ll call wealth. We will calculate the value of \$1 invested at the beginning of September 2000 in each investment, MSFT and the S&P 500. Starting with the basic worksheet and entering the compounded value calculation. For the month of September, 2000, the ending wealth is \$1 multiplied by the return for the month; for the MSFT investment, the entry into cell E5 is: 1*(1+B5) and for the S&P 500 the entry into cell F5 is 1*(1+C5). For the next month, value of \$1 invested is the value in E5 multiplied by 1 plus the return in B6, and so on: Once we have these values computed, we can graph these values using a simple line graph over time. Using the default settings for this graphing, we end up with: But after working with this graph a bit, we can produce: 11

12 Value of \$1 invested in MSFT in September 2000 Value of \$1 invested in the S&P 500 in September 2000 \$1.2 \$1.0 Value of \$1 invested 9/2000 \$0.8 \$0.6 \$0.4 \$0.2 \$0.0 04/ / / / / / / / / / / /2000 Month From looking at the worksheet, we conclude that if we invested \$1 in Microsoft in September 2000, we will now have \$1.02 of value. If we had invested \$1 in the S&P 500, we would have \$0.87 at the end of August You can find the worksheet that resulted from this effort here. 12
