Abstract

Regression of security returns on treasury bill rates provide insight about the behavior of risk in rational asset pricing models. The information in one-month bill rates implies time variation in the conditional covariances of portfolios of stocks and fixed-income securities with benchmark pricing variables over extended samples and within five-year subperiods. There is evidence of changes in conditional "betas" associated with interest rates. Consumption and stock market data are examined as proxies for marginal utility in a general framework for asset pricing with time-varying conditional covariances.
