Fama-French 3 Factor Model

Fama-French 3 Factor Model

Extension of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Ra = Rfr + [βa * ( Rm - Rfr )]

Ra = Return of the Asset
Rfr = Risk-Free Rate
βa = Beta Coefficient of the Asset
Rm - Rfr = Market Risk Premium

Fama-French 3 Factor
r = rf + β1*( rm - rf ) + β2( smh ) +β3(hml)

r = Expected rate of return
rf = Risk-free rate
ß = Factor’s coefficient (sensitivity)
( rm rf ) = Market risk premium
SMB (Small Minus Big) = Historic excess returns of small-cap companies over large-cap companies
HML (High Minus Low) = Historic excess returns of value stocks (high book-to-price ratio) over growth stocks (low book-to-price ratio)
