Abstract

The broadness of no-arbitrage bounds on asset prices has led to a number of suggestions on how to narrow them. This paper points out that another, apparently unexploited, opportunity exists for narrowing the no-arbitrage bounds, using information on the production technology. The key analytic concept is that of the derivative-cost function, which is used to define a notion of arbitrage that encompasses both the basis assets and stochastic production opportunities.
