Abstract

The study aims at executing five tantamount asset pricing models in Egypt, in particular: 1) “the CAPM”, 2) “the Fama-French three-factor model (1993)”, 3) “the Carhart model (1997)”, 4) “the four-factor model of Chan and Faff (2005)”, and 5) “the five-factor model (Liquidity and Momentum-Augmented Fama-French three factor model)”. This research effort pursues Fama-French arranging approach in view of the size and Book-to-Market proportion (B-M ratio) for 55 securities out of the most 100 stocks in the Egyptian Stock Exchange (EGX) over a five years’ time period. We utilized “the time series regression of Black, Jensen and Scholes (1972)”. The findings of the study revealed that in terms of predictability, FF three-factor model prompts a significant improvement over the CAPM, while alternate models do not demonstrate a noteworthy increment over the FF three factor model.
