CAPM, Carhart Model, Fama And French's Model, Market Overreaction


This study aims to determine an ability of the four-factor model of Carhart in explaining the portfolio returns formed in condition of market overreaction. The four-factor model is basically a model proposed by Fama and French and then developed by Carhart which adds price momentum factor into the model. While market overreaction is a market condition caused by excessive reactions from investors when receiving information. The portfolios used are the winner and loser formed based on the returns of each portfolio to the average of the returns. Both portfolio consist are the stocks of non-financial sector in Indonesia Stock Exchange during the period July 2005 - December 2015. The data used are the Composite Stock Price Index (CSPI), stock market capitalization, book to market ratio of each shares and the difference of returns of the loser over of the winner, as an indicator of price momentum factor that formed in market overreaction condition characterized by occurance the reversal of returns.

The results show that the four-factor model can explain the portfolio return well. Implementation of the GARCH (1,1) model to improve the accuracy of the estimation results also shows similar findings.
