Abstract [en]

In this thesis we test the Fama and French (1993) three-factor model and the CAPM on the Swedish stock market. All non-financial stocks listed on the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm exchange 2003-2013 are included in our sample. Monthly stock returns are regressed on the market portfolio and mimicking portfolios for size and book-to-market value of equity risk factors. We find that the thee-factor model does not produce regression intercepts superior to the CAPM, and thus conclude that the CAPM beta is a proper risk measure on the Swedish stock market.
