The Required Rate Of Return For Publicly Held Agricultural Equity: An Arbitrage Pricing Theory Approach


  • Collins, Robert A.


Recent interest in equity financing for commercial agriculture has created the need to reexamine the required rate of return for agricultural equity. The required rates of return for ten publicly held firms with agricultural operations are examined with arbitrage pricing theory. The results suggest that the required rate of return for this group of firms is similar to the required rate of return for an average share of stock.
