Description

asr implements the calculation of abnormal standardized returns.

Abnormal standardized returns are defined as the excess standardized returns relative to the standardized return of a matching control firm or relative to the average of standardized returns of a matching control portfolio. Standardized returns are defined as sr_{it} = \frac{r_{it}}{s_{it}} where s_{it} is a standard deviation estimator of log returns r_{it}.

Usage

1
asr(event, control, logret = FALSE)

Arguments

event

a vector or time series of returns.

control

a vector or time series of returns.

logret

An object of class "logical": If logret is FALSE, then both return-series 'event' and 'control' will be converted into log-returns before calculating abnormal standardized returns. Set logret to TRUE, if both return-series are already log-returns.

Value

asr returns a vector of class "numeric":

ASR

Vector containing abnormal standardized returns.
