Abstract

Predictive regressions are subject to finite sample bias. We propose a new twostep procedure to make correct inference for predictive regressions. Simulation results show that our procedure performs better than the existing two-step procedure in eliminating the bias and size distortion of the conventional $t$-test. We apply this procedure and find that dividend yield has lost predictive power for return since the early 1990s.
