Abstract
In this study we test the meanvariance capital asset pricing model (CAPM) developed by Sharpe (1965) Lintner (1966) on individual stocks traded at Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE), the main equity market in Pakistan for the period 19932004 using daily and monthly data. The empirical findings do not support standard CAPM as a model to explain assets pricing in Pakistani equity market. In response to this finding first, we have extended the model to meanvarianceskewness and meanvarianceskewnesskurtosis model following Kraus and Litzenberger (1976). In the second step we allow the covariance, coskewness and cokurtosis to vary over time in autoregressive context leading to conditional threemoment CAPM and conditional fourmoment CAPM. The results of unconditional and conditional highermoments CAPM reveal that threemoment CAPM performed relatively well in explaining riskreturn relationship in Pakistan during the sample period However, the results of highermoment model indicate that systematic covariance and systematic cokurtosis have marginal role in explaining the asset price behavior in Pakistan.
