From the Publisher
The purpose of the book is to provide the foundations for the study of modern financial economics. Rather than giving superficial coverage of a wide range of topics, the book concentrates on individuals' consumption and portfolio decisions under uncertainty and their implications for the valuation of securities. Prentice Hall acquired this title from Elsevier Publishers.

Features in-depth coverage of such topics as: concepts of risk aversion and stochastic dominance; mathematical properties of a portfolio frontier; distributional conditions for mutual fund separation; capital asset pricing models and arbitrage pricing models; general pricing rules for securities that pay off in more than one state of nature; the pricing of options; rational expectation models of risky asset prices; signaling models; how multiperiod dynamic economies can be modeled; a multiperiod economy with emphasis on valuation by arbitrage; econometric issues associated with testing capital asset pricing models. For readers interested in a rigorous overview of financial economicsn individual consumption point of view. © 1988

The last chapter, however, covers the econometric questions mainly on CAPM estimation problems. This is a very useful chapter.
