The average MRP used by analysts in the United States and Canada (5.1%) was similar to the one used by their colleagues in Europe (5.0%), and United Kingdom (5.2%). But the average MRP used by companies in the United States and Canada (5.3%) was smaller than the one used by companies in Europe (5.7%), and United Kingdom (5.6%). The dispersion of the MRP used was high, but lower than that of the MRP used by professors: the average range of MRP used by analysts (companies) for the same country was 5.7% (4.1%) and the average standard deviation was 1.7% (1.2%). These statistics were 7.4% and 2.4% for the professors. Most previous surveys have been interested in the Expected MRP, but this survey asks about the Required MRP. The paper also contains the references that analysts and companies use to justify their MRP, and comments from 89 respondents that illustrate the various interpretations of what is the required MRP.
