Abstract:     
This paper employs a hybrid approach that combines an adapted version of Fama-MacBeth two-pass regression with Engle-Granger cointegration test to characterize the relationship between expected stock returns and systematic risks with diverse investment horizons. We find no evidence supporting a positive relationship between the market beta and return for various investment horizons. The book-to-market effect is sensitive to the investment horizon. We find a size effect for diverse investment horizons in period from 1986 to 1993. However, the size effect disappears in the subsequent period.
