Value and Patience: The Value Premium in a Dividend-Growth Model with Hyperbolic Discounting


Caliskan, Nilufer; Hens, Thorsten (2013). Value and Patience: The Value Premium in a Dividend-Growth Model with Hyperbolic Discounting. Swiss Finance Institute Research Paper 13-32, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We show that in a consumption-based asset-pricing model with hyperbolic discounting leading to dynamically inconsistent time preferences value premium increases nonlinearly with the degree of discounting and thus affects cross section of returns. To test our model empirically, we relate the size of the value premium in 41 countries to the degree of hyperbolic discounting across those countries. The latter was found in an International Test of Risk Attitudes (INTRA). Our result is robust to the inclusion of other variables from INTRA, such as risk aversion, as well as micro- and macro-economic variables from the 41 countries.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
