4 1 Inroducon Basc asse prcng heory suggess ha me seres and cross-seconal varaon n asse reurns should be relaed o macroeconomc rsk facors. In lne wh heory and earler evdence (see Cochrane (005 for an excellen survey of he leraure, Cooper and Presley (009 show ha he devaon of ndusral producon from rend (producon gap or oupu from rend (oupu gap predcs excess reurns on he U.S. sock and bond marke n- and ouof-sample. A negave producon gap predcs hgh excess reurns and vce versa. The nsample forecasng power of naonal producon gaps for naonal sock marke reurns perans also o he oher G7 counres. Ths laer fndng s parcularly neresng for a leas wo reasons. Frs, n conras o he producon gap, he record of oher purely macroeconomc forecas varables for sock marke reurns s raher mxed n nernaonal comparson. For nsance, shor-run varaon n he U.S. consumpon-wealh rao predcs U.S. sock marke reurns (Leau and Ludvgson, 001. Ths fndng also perans o consumpon-wealh raos of oher Anglo-Saxon counres (Fernandez-Corugedo e al., 003; Fsher and Voss, 004; Tan and Voss, 003; Ioanndes e al., 006 bu her German or Japanese counerpars do no predc he respecve German or Japanese sock marke excess reurns (Hamburg e al., 008; Nagayasu, 009. Second, he G7 counres ndusral producon gaps are sgnfcanly and posvely correlaed wh each oher. Correlaons of around 0.5 are common. Hence, a pror, s no clear f he predcve power of he naonal producon gaps s he oucome of common, global varaon n producon gaps or due o her counry-specfc dynamcs. Earler sudes hghlgh he mporance of global fnancal marke rsk facors as explanaon of naonal sock markes me varaon (e.g. Bekaer and Harvey, 1995; Campbell and Hamao, 199; Chan e al., 199; Dumas and Sonk, 1995; Ferson and Harvey, 1993; Harvey, angvd (006 scales sock prces wh GDP o show ha hs sock prce o GDP rao s a powerful predcor of sock marke reurns nernaonally. By consrucon, however, hs s no a purely macroeconomc varable. 1

5 1991. Moreover, Guo (006 and Nschka (010 provde evdence for he mpac of global, busness cycle relaed rsk on naonal sock markes by showng ha he U.S. consumponwealh-rao does no only predc U.S. bu also foregn sock marke reurns. ecenly, Cooper and Presley (01 show ha swngs n he world capal sock o oupu rao predc naonal sock marke reurns of developed counres n- and ou-of-sample. The man emprcal resuls of hs paper suppor he vew ha global macroeconomc rsk plays an mporan role for explanaons of me-varaon n expeced asse reurns. The evdence presened n hs paper reveals ha sock marke reurn predcably by naonal producon gaps s prmarly drven by common varaon n he producon gaps. The man fndngs of hs paper are robus o a range of conrols, hold across subsample perods, peran a dfferen forecas horzons, reman qualavely unalered when daa s measured a lower han he monhly frequency and are suppored n sascal ess of ou-of-sample predcably. Assessmens of he mporance of global rsks for me varaon n sock marke excess reurns have ypcally reled on regressons of foregn sock marke reurns on U.S. forecas varables so far. The predcve power of he U.S. varables has been nerpreed as evdence for he presence of a common componen n sock marke reurns (e.g. Campbell and Hamao, 199; Guo, 006; Nschka, 010. Ths paper dffers from hese sudes. I provdes drec evdence for he presence of global macroeconomc rsk drvng me varaon n sock marke reurns. Ths paper hus adds complemenary nsghs o Cooper and Presley (01 who reveal he explanaory power of world busness cycle flucuaons, measured n he world capal sock o oupu rao, on naonal sock marke reurns. The world capal sock o oupu rao, however, feaures also he U.S. capal sock o oupu rao whch could be a major drver of her resuls. The approach followed n hs paper allows o address such concerns. 3

6 Moreover, hs paper reveals ha foregn macroeconomc rsk s mporan n order o explan me varaon n excess reurns on he U.S. sock marke. To he bes of my knowledge, here has been lle evdence of he mpac of foregn macroeconomc rsk on U.S. sock marke rsk prema so far. I explo hs laer fndng o assess he relave mporance of global and counry-specfc rsk for he explanaory power of he U.S. producon gap for U.S. bond excess reurns oo. Ths paper fnds ha boh global and U.S.-specfc pars of he U.S. producon gap explan me varaon n U.S. bond excess reurns. Ths observaon echoes recen evdence by Dahlqus and Hasselof (011 who show ha boh global and local versons of he Cochrane and Pazzes (005 bond rsk facor smulaneously predc bond excess reurns n he US, UK, Germany and Swzerland. Despe evdence for he mporance of global rsk for naonal bond excess reurns (Borr and Verdelhan, 011; Cooper and Presley, 01; Ilmanen, 1995, counry-specfc macroeconomc dynamcs hence also play an mporan role n explanng bond excess reurns. Taken ogeher, he man fndngs of hs paper renforce he pon ha ruly global busness cycle rsk, no necessarly concdng wh U.S. macroeconomc rsk, s an mporan explanaon of me-varyng excess reurns on naonal asse markes. Ths s parcularly rue for sock markes bu he emprcal analyss of hs paper also shows ha global rsk s mporan o undersand dynamcs of bond excess reurns. However, he mpac of counryspecfc macroeconomc rsk s no neglgble n ha conex. Ths paper hus conrbues o recen sudes ha deal wh he queson f common (macroeconomc rsk facors drve dfferen asse markes (e.g. Asness e al., 011; Bansal and Shalasovch, 010; Bekaer e al., 009; Hasselof, 010; Kojen e al., 010; Verdelhan, 011. I s mporan o bear n mnd ha hs paper assesses he mporance of global vs. counryspecfc rsk embedded n one sngle macroeconomc forecas varable. Ths paper does no assess he general queson how srongly global or counry-specfc macroeconomc rsk affec me seres varaon n asse reurns. There s evdence ha global macroeconomc rsk plays 4 3

7 an mporan role n hs respec and hs paper suppors hs vew. Bu hs s no anamoun o sayng ha counry-specfc rsks play no role. A number of sudes provde evdence for he mporance of local rsk facors n asse reurns, especally n emergng markes. Examples nclude Bekaer (1995 and Harvey (1995 who show ha local facors are mporan when assessng he predcably of emergng sock marke s rsk prema or Bekaer e al. (007 who hghlgh he mporance of counry-specfc lqudy rsk n emergng counres sock marke reurns. The remander of he paper s srucured as follows. Secon provdes nformaon abou he daa employed n hs sudy as well as he calculaon of he producon gap. Secon 3 presens he economerc framework and he man emprcal resuls for he predcably of sock marke reurns. Secon 4 assesses he mpac of global and counry-specfc busness cycle rsk on U.S. bond excess reurns. Secon 5 concludes. The appendx addresses a more general pon and shows ha s approprae o neglec he poenal feedback of sock reurns on he real economy n he presen conex. Daa, defnon of producon gap and excess reurns Counry coverage and baselne sample perod The counres under sudy are Canada, France, Germany, Ialy, Japan, he UK and he US. The baselne sample perod runs from January 1970 o February 011. Due o lmed daa avalably, he sample perod for he U.S. bond predcably assessmen spans only he perod from January 1970 o December 003. Defnon of producon gap To calculae he producon gaps, I follow Cooper and Presley (009 and regress he naural logarhm of each of he G7 counres monhly and seasonally adjused ndusral producon ndexes from he IMF's Fnancal Sascs on a lnear and quadrac me rend,.e. p = α + βrend + γrend + ε 5 (1 4

The shor-erm neres raes are reasury bll raes for Canada, he UK and he U.S. and money marke raes for France, Germany, Ialy and Japan. They are obaned from he IMF s Inernaonal Fnancal Sascs. The sock marke ndex daa are freely avalable on All of he resuls presened n he subsequence reman unaffeced f I use prce ndexes,.e. ndexes whch assume ha dvdend paymens are no renvesed, or sock ndexes denomnaed n U.S. dollar nsead of local currences. Neher dvdend growh nor exchange rae changes are predcable by he producon gap varees consdered n hs paper. In addon, all of he resuls reman qualavely unaffeced f I consder real sock marke reurns nsead of excess reurns n he forecas regressons. These resuls are no presened bu avalable upon reques. U.S. bond excess reurns Annual U.S. bond excess reurns a he monhly frequency are obaned from borrowng a he one-year yeld on a one-year maury bond n a gven monh, buyng a longer-erm (wo o 3 Cooper and Presley (009 consder four dfferen defnons of an oupu gap for he U.S., bu for reasons of daa avalably focus on he one obaned from equaon (1 n her assessmen of he G7 counres. 6 5

10 3 Economerc specfcaons and resuls of sock reurn predcably regressons Producon gaps of he G7 counres predc excess reurns on he respecve naonal sock markes (Cooper and Presley, 009. However, able 1 dsplays ha he parwse correlaons beween he G7 counres producon gaps for he me perod from 1970 o 011 are all posve, sascally sgnfcan and coeffcens of 0.5 or hgher are no uncommon. The predcve power of naonal producon gaps could hence be relaed o a common, global componen. [abou here Table 1] To evaluae hs hypohess, I run one-monh ahead, n-sample, forecas regressons of he excess reurns on he G7 counres sock markes on a res-of-he-world producon gap from each of he G7 counres perspecve. As a furher es of hs hypohess, I dsngush beween common and dosyncrac componens n naonal producon gaps and es he predcve ably of hese wo componens n he presence of he erm spread, anoher powerful predcor of sock marke excess reurns nernaonally (Hjalmarsson, 010, and he counry-specfc dvdend-prce raos. Secon 3.1 presens he correspondng resuls. In addon, I check wheher he resuls are robus across subsample perods and f hey hold when ncreasng he forecas horzon above one monh. Secons 3. and 3.3 provde hese resuls. Moreover, I assess f he resuls hold when he daa s measured a lower han he monhly frequency and he common componen n naonal producon gaps s drecly obaned from a prncpal componen analyss. Secons 3.4 and 3.5 presen hese resuls. Fnally, secon 3.6. assesses f he nformaon on he dfferen producon gap componens could have helped nvesors n real me nvesmen decsons,.e. ou-of-sample predcably. 8 7

11 3.1 In-sample forecas regressons: Common or dosyncrac rsk n naonal producon gaps? Ths secon provdes an assessmen of he hypohess ha he predcve power of producon gaps for excess reurns on he G7 sock markes n Cooper and Presley (009 s drven by common, busness cycle relaed rsk. Ths assessmen consss of wo pars Evdence from unvarae regressons The frs par of he assessmen proceeds n hree seps. Frs, I presen resuls from a rerun of he Cooper and Presley (009 one-monh ahead forecas regressons of he G7 counres sock marke excess reurns on naonal producon gaps,.e. r e, = + β gap α + ν (3 wh e r, he monhly excess reurn on one of he G7 sock markes and gap he respecve counres producon gap obaned from equaon (1. The forecas regresson follows Cooper and Presley (009 n usng he second lag of gap because ndusral producon ndex daa s ypcally publshed wh a lag,.e. he ndusral producon ndex daa for monh -1 s publshed n he mddle of he perod -1 o (see also Chen e al., Snce he sample n hs sudy covers fve addonal years of daa compared o Cooper and Presley (009 and ncludes he recen fnancal crss and he grea recesson, hs rerun serves as a robusness check f he predcve power of naonal producon gaps for naonal sock marke reurns sll holds. In a second sep, I consruc a res-of-he-world producon gap, defned as gap G7 1 = K K k = 1 gap k (4 where K= 7 and k denoes he G7 counres oher han counry and assess f hs res-of-heworld producon gap predcs excess reurns on he sock marke of counry,.e. r e, = G7 α + β gap + ν (5 9 8

12 In words, f, for example, represens Canada, hen he res-of-he-world producon gap s he arhmec average of he oher sx G7 counres producon gaps. I hen assess f hs average producon gap of he oher counres predcs he excess reurn on he Canadan sock marke. If represens France, hen he res-of-he-world producon gap s he average producon gap of he G7 counres excludng France, ec. In he hrd sep, I assess f he res-of-he-world producon gap could be replaced by he U.S. producon gap. Ths assessmen s movaed by fndngs of Campbell and Hamao (199 who show ha predcve varables of U.S. sock marke reurns also predc Japanese sock marke reurns and Guo (006 as well as Nschka (010 who provde evdence for he forecas power of shor-run varaons n he U.S. consumpon-wealh rao for foregn sock marke reurns. The forecas equaon hen akes he followng form: r e, α gap + ν US = + β (6 Table summarzes he resuls of hs frs assessmen. Column (I presens he esmaes from equaon (4, column (II gves he esmaes from equaon (5 and column (III dsplays he esmaes from equaon (6. Newey-Wes (Newey and Wes, 1987 correced -sascs appear below he esmaes n parenhess. Snce he gaps are generaed regressors and he sample sze of almos 500 monhly observaons does no guaranee ha asympoc dsrbuon heory apples, I follow Hoffmann (011 and addonally assess he sascal sgnfcance of he esmaes by regardng Valkanov (003 correced -sascs. Valkanov suggess o dvde he sandard -sasc by he square roo of he sample sze. Ths correced -sasc allows o address concerns abou he perssence of regressor and small sample bas. Ths s parcularly helpful for nference from long-horzon regressons when he mpac of perssen regressors more of a concern han n he curren regresson seup. Crcal values for hs sasc are obaned by generang normally dsrbued me seres n he sample sze and regressng hs arfcally generaed, heorecally sound,.e. unpredcable, seres on he gap varees. Even hough only Newey-Wes (1987 correced -sascs are repored, asersk n 10 9

13 he ables ndcaes ha he esmae s sgnfcan a 95% confdence level for boh Newey- Wes (1987 and Valkanov (003 correced -sascs. The sample perod runs from January 1970 o February 011. The resuls presened under column (I of able confrm ha he paern observed by Cooper and Presley (009 also holds n hs longer sample perod. In fac, he resuls are even sronger n erms of sascal sgnfcance. A negave naonal producon gap oday predcs posve excess reurns on he respecve naonal sock marke one monh ahead. The esmaes are sascally sgnfcan a he 95% confdence level for all of he G7 counres excep Canada. The naonal producon gaps explan beween 1% and % of he me varaon n sock marke excess reurns one-monh ahead. Is hs predcve power he reflecon of common, macroeconomc rsk? The esmaes under column (II of able gve some ndcave evdence whch suppors hs hypohess. For all of he G7 counres, wh he excepon of Ialy, he average producon gap of he oher sx G7 counres predcs he counry s sock marke excess reurn ha s excluded from he producon gap consrucon. Ineresngly, he res-of-he-world producon gap predcs he Canadan sock marke excess reurn whle he Canadan producon gap does no. Conversely, he Ialan producon gap predcs he respecve naonal sock marke excess reurn whle he res-of-he-world producon gap does no. Ths fndng suggess ha an dosyncrac componen n he Ialan producon gap s responsble for s forecas ably of sock marke excess reurns. I also noeworhy ha he U.S. sock marke reurn s predcable by he average producon gap of he oher sx G7 counres. So far here s ample evdence for he predcve power of U.S. varables for foregn sock marke reurns whch s ypcally nerpreed as evdence for he presence of a common, global drvng force of me varaon n sock markes (e.g. Campbell and Hamao, 199; Guo, 006; Nschka, 010. Campbell and Hamao (199 show ha U.S. fnancal marke varables ha explan me varaon n he U.S. sock marke reurn sgnfcanly predc Japanese sock marke reurns. By conras, 11 10

14 Japanese predcve varables, such as he dvdend-prce rao, do no raonalze me varaon n U.S. sock marke reurns. To he bes of my knowledge, here has been lle drec evdence for he predcably of U.S. sock marke reurns by foregn macroeconomc varables as of ye. Ths sudy flls hs gap. Ths laer observaon s relaed o he queson f he res-of-he-world producon gap s n fac drven by he U.S. producon gap and hus f he evdence presened so far reflecs he drec mpac of U.S. busness cycle condons. The esmaes from equaon (6 presened under column (III of able sugges ha hs s no he case. The U.S. producon gap alone has some explanaory power for he UK sock marke excess reurn bu no for excess reurns on he oher G7 counres sock markes. The evdence of predcably by he res-of-heworld producon gaps s hence unlkely a drec reflecon of he U.S. busness cycle. [abou here Table ] 3.1. Evdence from mulvarae regressons dsngushng common and dosyncrac producon gap componens The frs par of he assessmen f he predcve power of naonal producon gaps for naonal sock marke excess reurns reflecs common busness cycle rsk leaves he mpresson ha ndeed global rsk plays an mporan role n hs respec. The second par of he assessmen res o dsngush explcly beween common and dosyncrac macroeconomc rsks by decomposng he naonal producon gaps no one componen ha s perfecly correlaed wh he respecve res-of-he-world producon gaps and he orhogonal componen nerpreed as counry-specfc par of he producon gap. Therefore, I run he followng regresson gap = G7 α + β gap + ν (7 o oban he componen n producon gaps ha s perfecly correlaed wh he res-of-heworld producon gaps, β gap G 7 whch s henceforh denoed common, gap. The componen 1 11

I use hese componens o provde furher evdence on he source of he predcve power of naonal producon gaps by runnng regressons on he common and dosyncrac producon gap componens alone and check also wheher he erm spread, he dfference n yelds ( n percenage pons p.a. on a long-erm governmen bond and a shor-erm rae, alers any of he conclusons drawn so far. Hjalmarsson (010 shows ha predcve varables consruced from neres raes, especally he erm spread, are more robus predcors of sock reurns han prce-earnngs or dvdend-prce raos nernaonally. Includng he naonal erm spreads should hence be a good and parsmonous robusness es of he producon gap componens explanaory power for me varaon n sock marke excess reurns n hs nernaonal conex. As an alernave conrol, I also consder he counry-specfc dvdend-prce rao. The forecas regressons obey r e, α β gap β gap + ν common, do, = (8 and ncludng he erm spread r e, α β gap β gap β s + ν common, do, = (9 or he dvdend-prce rao r e, common, do, = + β1 gap + β gap + β 3dp 1 α + ν (10 Table 3 summarzes he resuls.

Column (II of able 3 shows ha he man concluson remans unalered when akng he respecve counres erm spread as addonal predcve varable no accoun. The ncluson of he erm spread drves ou he sascal sgnfcance of he common producon gap s regresson coeffcen for Canada. All of he oher counres resuls do no change. The erm spread self does no explan he varaon of he sock marke excess reurns n he presence of he wo producon gap componens. Ths fndng should no be oo surprsng snce he erm spread and he producon gap should boh rack busness cycle relaed varaon n sock reurns (Cooper and Presley, 009. In he regressons presened above could eher be drven ou by he presence of he common or he dosyncrac producon gap componens dependng on he exen by whch naonal erm spreads are drven by counry-specfc or global macroeconomc dynamcs.

The gap, however, s measured as a devaon of an ndusral producon ndex from a lnear and a quadrac me rend over he full sample perod.

A comparson of he nernaonal evdence provded n Cooper and Presley (009 and he rerun dsplayed n secon 3.1 could rase concerns n hs respec. The nernaonal evdence n Cooper and Presley (009 s less srong n erms of sascal sgnfcance han he reruns of her orgnal regressons presened n hs paper. Ths s ceranly due o he fac ha he Cooper and Presley (009 sample perod ends n 005 whereas hs paper ncludes fve addonal years of daa ncludng he grea recesson and hence a maeral devaon of ndusral producon n he G7 counres from rend. To gauge he mpac of he parcular sample perod on he man conclusons of hs paper, I spl he sample perod no wo halves. The frs subsample perod runs from January 1970 o June The second subsample spans he perod from July 1990 o February 011. I hen run equaon (1 o oban he producon gaps for he parcular subsample perod and rerun he forecas regresson (9 for he wo subsample perods. Table 4 summarzes he resuls.

In erms of sascal sgnfcance of he common producon gap componen s predcve power he resuls are slghly weaker han for he full sample perod. For Canadan and Ialan sock marke excess reurns he common producon gap componen exhbs no sascally sgnfcan explanaory power. For France, he esmae s margnally nsgnfcan a he 90% confdence level. Tme varaon n Japanese, Brsh and Amercan sock marke excess reurns, however, appears o be sgnfcanly explaned by he common producon gap componen.

The sascal sgnfcance of he common producon gap componen s forecas ably for he German, French and Japanese sock marke excess reurns deeroraes o sgnfcance levels below 95%. By conras, he Canadan sock marke excess reurn urns ou o be sgnfcanly explaned by he common producon gap componen as do he Brsh and Amercan sock marke excess reurns.

Hence, he one-monh ahead forecas regressons already provde he proof of he n-sample forecas ably of he common producon gap componens.
