1 Stock Price Dynamics, Dividends and Option Prices with Volatility Feedback Juho Kanniainen Tampere University of Technology New Thinking in Finance 12 Feb. 2014, London Based on J. Kanniainen and R. Piche, Stock price dynamics and option valuations under volatility feedback effect, Physica A, 392,
2 Intuition: What is Volatility Feedback? 1 An unexpected increase in squared volatility 2 Investors require more return to compensate higher risk 3 An increase in an instantaneous (stochastic) discount rate 4 Dividends are discounted at a higher rate 5 The expectation of future discounted dividends decreases 6 The stock price decreases, pricedividend ratio decreases and instantaneous dividend yield increases 7 An increase in squared volatility can decrease the value of an inthemoney call option with a convex payoff function through stock price and dividend yield It can be important to model how volatility drives dividend yield making it timevarying
3 Assumption 1: Returns, Volatility, and RiskReturn Tradeoff The cumulative return from dividends and changes in prices satisfies dr t = dp t +D t dt P t. The joint dynamics with its instantaneous volatility, x t, evolves as dr t = ( r +γx 2 t) dt+xt db r t dx t = βx t dt+σ x db x t, where r,γ,β, and σ x are constant positive real numbers. B r and B x are Brownian motions, db r tdb x t = ρ rx,t dt, and x 0 := x, x R. Consequently, squared volatility, h t = x 2 t, follows the squared root process, dh t = κ(θ h t )dt+σ h ht db x t with κ = 2β, θ = σ 2 x/(2β), and σ h = 2σ x.
4 Assumption 2: Dividends (i) The stochastic differential of dividends is given by dd t = αd t dt+y t D t db d t with db d tdb x t = ρ dx dt and D 0 := D, D > 0. The correlation coefficient of dividend growth and return volatility (leverage effect), ρ dx [ 1,1], and the expected rate of dividend growth, α R, are constant. Dividend growth volatility, y t, is stochastic. (ii) ( ) d sign dτ Cov ( t Dt,(x 2 ) t ) τ=t = sign(ρ dx ).
5 Assumption 3: Transversality Condition The stock price, p(d t,x t ), can be expressed as the expected value of discounted dividends, conditional upon the present information: [ s ] ( ) p(d t,x t ) = E D,x exp r +γx 2 u du D s ds t t [ s ( = D t E x exp α r γx 2 u 1 ) t t 2 y2 u du s ] + y u dbu d ds <. Here r +γx 2 u represents the instantaneous stochastic cost of capital at time u. t
6 PriceDividend Ratio The pricedividend ratio, f : R R +, satisfies p(d t,x t ) = D t f(x t ). Hence, [ s ( f(x t ) = E x exp α r γx 2 u 1 ) s ] 2 y2 u du+ y u dbu d ds. t t t For all x > 0, f(x) = f( x) and so p(d,x) = p(d, x) (the sign of volatility does not matter) f is an even function, i.e., f(x) = f( x),f x (x) = f x ( x), and f xx (x) = f xx ( x) for all x > 0, where f x and f xx denote first and second order derivatives. For the stock price to be a continuously differentiable function, we can impose that f x (0) = 0.
7 Stock Price Dynamics with TimeVarying Dividend Yield Consequently, the stock price process, P t = p(d t,x t ), {P t ;t 0}, satisfies dp t = ( r +γx 2 t) Pt dt D t dt+x t P t dbt r ( = r +γx 2 t 1 ) P t dt+x t P t dbt r f(x t ) ( = r +γx 2 t 1 ) P t dt+y(x t )P t db d f x (x t ) t +σ x f(x t ) f(x t ) P tdbt x, where 1/f(x t ) is the instantaneous dividend yield and y(x t ) dividend growth volatility.
8 Solutions for PriceDividend Ratio and Dividend Growth Volatility The pricedividend, f(x) ratio satisfies the following relation: (y(x)σ x ρ dx βx)f x (x)+ 1 2 σ2 xf xx (x) (r +γx 2 α)f(x) = 1, where dividend growth volatility, y(x), is given by ( ) f x (x) y(x) = ρ dx σ x f(x) +sign(x) x 2 (1 ρ 2 dx ) f x (x) 2 σ x. f(x) For the interval x 0, the boundary conditions are f(x) = 0 as x and f x (x) = 0 at x = 0. Note that y(x) = 0 if and only if return volatility x = 0. Moreover, the paper shows that sign(y(x)) = sign(x) and y( x) = y(x) for any x > 0. We used the bvp4c solver in the Matlab.
9 Numerical Illustration of PriceDividend Ratio w.r.t. Volatility Price dividend ratio, f(x) γ = 1; α = 0.02 γ = 2; α = 0.05 γ = 3; α = Return volatility, x Figure: The pricedividend ratio, f(x), with respect to return volatility, x. The parameters r = 0.02, β = 0.5, σ x = 0.2, and ρ dx = 0.5.
10 Return Volatility vs Dividend Growth Volatility Return volatility is higher than dividend growth volatility, x 2 > y(x) 2, if and only if ρ dx < σ x f x (x) 2x f(x). Because the right hand side is always positive, returns fluctuate more than dividends if the correlation between dividends and return volatility is negative, ρ dx < 0, which indicates the financial leverage effect. Therefore, the excess volatility can be explained by implementing volatility feedback and leverage effects in the same model. This is in contrast to Shiller s argument that volatility is too high. If γ is relatively high, volatility feedback can amplify a very small but nonzero dividend growth volatility to a relatively high return volatility (the next slide).
11 Return Volatility vs Dividend Growth Volatility (cont.) Dividend growth volatility, y(x) (a) Return volatility, x Ratio of return volatility to dividend growth volatility, x / y(x) (b) Return volatility, x Figure: The parameters are γ = 3.115, α = 0.08, σ x = 0.2, β = 0.5, r = 0.02, and ρ dx = 0.5. In (a), dividend growth volatility is plotted against return volatility, and in (b) the ratio of return volatility to dividend growth volatility is plotted.
12 Alternatively, the dividend stream and return volatility can also be simulated together and the stock price is then given by P t = D t f(x t ). Simulation In discrete time with ǫ d,ǫ x N(0,1), Corr(ǫ d,ǫ x ) = ρ dx : [( P t+ t = P t exp r +γx 2 t 1 f(x t ) 1 ) 2 x2 t t x t+ t = x t exp( β t)+σ x +y(x t ) tǫ d t +σ x f x (x t ) f(x t ) tǫ x t ], 1 exp( 2β t) ǫ x 2β t. In each step, f(x), f x (x), and y(x) can be solved for a given x with the given PDE Note that the dividend process can be determined from D t = P t /f(x t ) or, alternatively, simulated directly: D t+ t = D t exp [(α 12 y(x t) 2 ) t+y(x t ) tǫ d t ].

14 Sample Paths 0.1 Squared return volatility, x 2 t Return volatility / Dividend growth volatility, x t /y(x t ) The correlation between returns and return volatility, ρ rx (x t )
15 RiskNeutral Dynamics Under the riskneutral probability measure Q, dr t = rdt+x t d B r t, dx t = β(x t )x t dt+σ x d B x t, where B r t and B x t are under the probability measure Q, and β is the speed of the mean reversion under Q. The above is satisfied if with d B r t = db r t +γx t dt, d B x t = db x t + λ x(x t ) σ x x t dt x t d B r t = y(x t )d B d t +σ x f x (x t ) f(x t ) d B x t, where λ x (x t ) = β(x t ) β represents the volatility risk premium. For simplicity, λ x = β β is constant.
16 Option Valuation The price of a European call option can be computed as c(t,p t,x t,t,k,r,α;θ) = exp( r(t t))e Q t [ (PT K) +], where T is the time of maturity, K the exercise price, and θ = {σ x,β, β,γ,ρ dx } the set of structural parameters. To price options, we need to know not only parameters from volatility process, {σ x, β}, but also the price of diffusion return risk and volatility risk, {γ,λ x }. If γ = 0, then f = 1/(r α) an dividend yield equals r α. This corresponds an option pricing model with a constant dividend yield.
17 Option Valuation Specifically, even if {γ,λ x } do not directly appear in [( P t+ t = P t exp r 1 f(x t ) 1 ) 2 x2 t t ( ) x t+ t = x t exp β t +y(x t ) ] t ǫ d f x (x t ) t +σ x t ǫ x f(x t ) t, ) ( 2 β t 1 exp +σ x ǫ x t, 2 β they are need to compute f(x t ;γ,β,σ x,ρ dx ) every step (with β = β +λ x ). The price of diffusion return risk, γ, determines the sensitivity of dividend yield to return volatility and thereby affects option prices (vrt BS).

Moreover, x 0 = 0.2, P 0 = $100, K = $100, and t = 1/252 year.

In plot(a) β = 0.5 and in (b) β = 0.5. Moreover, x 0 = 0.2, P 0 = $100, K = $100, and t = 1/252 year.

Moreover, ρ dx = 0.5 (thicker lines) or ρ dx = 0.5 (thinner lines).
21 Calibration on Option Prices Option midprices on S&P500 inedx call options used to calibrate the model. Insample data: 11,267 observations (150 trading days) Outofsample data: 7,320 observations (100 trading days) The loss function we use is the square root dollar meansquared error, 1 n (ĉ(ti,p ti,t i,k i ) c(t i,p ti,x ti,t i,k i,ri Tbill,ᾱ;θ) ) 2, n i n denotes the number of contracts and ri Tbill the observed TBill rate. ĉ( ) is the price of the ith option, c( ;θ) the corresponding model price, x ti VIX ti 1 denotes the volatility proxy used at time t i. ᾱ 6.13%, from monthly data on S&P 500 dividends
22 Empirical Results (i) γ free (ii) γ = 0 (iii) γ = 0 with r i = 2r Tbill i, α = ᾱ/2 β (0.0420) (2.5897) (0.0474) σ x (0.0032) (0.0271) (0.0035) ρ dx (0.0069) (0.0180) (0.0033) λ x (0.0128) γ (0.0099) $RMSEs Sample A Sample B Parameters of the variance process can be obtained by applying the relations: κ = 2β = , σ h = 2σ x = , and θ = σ 2 x/(2β) = (spesification i).
23 Specification (i) ρ dx is negative, indicating the existence of a leverage effect γ is about 1.8 and statistically significant the expected returns are related to squared return volatility the pricedividend ratio is sensitive to return volatility λ x is negative, , and that it has been estimated accurately Theoretical link between volatility risk premium and the price of diffusion return risk (see e.g. Bakshi and Kapadia RFS 2003): λ x (x t ) = γσ x d dτ Corr t(x t,r t ) τ=t = γσ x ρ rx (x t ), With our estimates, ρ rx , σ x = 0.27 and γ = 1.79 yields the right hand side of to be about 0.38.
24 Specification (ii) γ = 0 excludes volatility feedback and implying that the pricedividend ratio, and then also the dividend yield, do not depend on return volatility. Both the insample (sample A) and outofthesample (sample B) RMSEs are substantially higher than in specification (i). The estimate of β is not reasonable, for it implies that κ is greater than 60 Moreover, the ρ dx is substantially positive and contradicts the leverage effect. On the other hand, γ = 0 is not consistent with the observed interest rates and the dividend growth rate. In particular, the average dividend growth rate, ᾱ , exceeds the Tbill rates that range from to and imply that the dividend yield, 1/f = r α, takes negative values. Therefore, we constructed a third specification, by which we ensured that the dividend yield is always a positive constant.
25 Specification (iii) To have strictly positive dividend yields with γ = 0, we use r i = 2ri Tbill with α = ᾱ/2, where ri Tbill is the Tbill rate at date i. Makes parameter estimates with γ = 0 more realistic and both the insample and outofthesample RMSEs decrease yet remain greater than in specification (i). These adjusted interest rate and dividend growth rate values are adhoc and do not represent the true economic situation. Rather, this specification shows that the poor performance and unrealistic estimates of specification (ii) can be partly explained by the fact that the assumption of γ = 0 contradicts the empirical observations of dividend growth and riskfree interest rates.
26 Conclusions Under volatility feedback effect dividend yield becomes timevarying and endogenously determined by total return volatility This implies that the stock price and dividend stream do not always move in the same direction the ratio of total return volatility to dividend growth volatility can be relatively high the market price of diffusion return risk (or equity riskpremium) affects option prices the market price of diffusion return risk can be estimated from option data the price of a call option can be decreasing in squared total return volatility Approximations or computational solutions needed to ease our progress Hedging under volatility feedback?
