El presente trabajo se enmarca en un APT (Ross, 1976a) de la vertiente de Variables Macroeconómicas, que tiene la ventaja (en comparación con Análisis Factorial) de permitir la interpretación económica de los factores y los premios por riesgo factoriales. Similar a Burmeister y McElroy (1988), consideramos cuatro factores macroeconómicos medidos y un factor no observado; la presencia de factores no observados es una generalización del trabajo previo de Chen, Roll y Ross (1986). Partiendo del modelo de factores, la Teoría de Precios por Arbitraje (APT) impone restricciones, las que son comprobadas empíricamente en el período 1990-2003. Además, el Modelo de Valoración de Activos de Capital (CAPM) está anidado en el APT, lo que permite someter a prueba el modelo CAPM. Nuestros resultados son: (a) la restricción del APT no es rechazada por los datos, (b) las sorpresas en la tasa de crecimiento del Índice Mensual de Actividad Económica (IMACEC), en el precio del cobre y en el precio del petróleo aparecen como factores con premios por riesgo estadísticamente distintos a cero en los retornos accionarios chilenos; mientras que las sorpresa en inflación no aparecen preciadas en la muestra, y (c) el modelo CAPM es fuertemente rechazado por los datos, en favor del APT.
