Abstract

A test of the CAPM is developed conditional on a prior belief about the correlation between the true market return and the proxy return used in the test. Consideration is given to the effect of the proxy's mismeasurement of the market return on the estimation of the market model. Failure to grant this consideration biases tests towards rejection by overstating the inefficiency of the proxy. An extension of the proposed test to a CAPM with conditioning information links mismeasurement of the market return to time-variation in beta.
