Question 1:
Using data for the excess monthly returns of Volkswagen shares and the Dow Jones Index for the
period January 2003 to December 2020:
(a) Estimate a CAPM regression model and interpret the results.
(b) Suppose you want to conduct an “event analysis” of the effects of Volkswagen’s 2015
emissions scandal within the context of a CAPM model. Explain how you would augment
your specification in part (a) to estimate the event analysis.
(c) Estimate the model specification you have described in part (b).
