AbstractPredictive regression is an important research topic in financial econometrics. To test the predictability, various methods have been proposed, but they suffer from a complicated asymptotic limit which depends on whether or not the predicting variable is stationary. In this talk we employ a nonlinear projection to deal with endogeneity of the state variable which results in a new semiparametric predictive regression model for describing the relationship between the state variable and the asset return. A weighted profile least square approach is used to estimate the parameters, and an empirical likelihood method is employed to test predictability. We establish the asymptotic distributions of the proposed estimators and show the Wilks theorem holds for the test statistic regardless of predicting variable being stationary or not. This provides a unifying method for constructing interval estimators of the coefficients of predicting variable. Simulations are conducted to demonstrate nice finite performance, and a real example is used to illustrate the use of the proposed method.
