Dinámica endógena del dividendo y la estructura temporal del dividend strip (Paper NBER)
Endogenous Dividend Dynamics and the Term Structure of Dividend Strips -- by Frederico Belo, Pierre Collin-Dufresne, Robert S. Goldstein
Many leading asset pricing models predict that the term structures of expected returns and volatilities on dividend strips are strongly upward sloping. Yet the empirical evidence suggests otherwise. This discrepancy can be reconciled if these models replace their exogenously specified dividend dynamics with processes that are derived endogenously from capital structure policies that generate stationary leverage ratios. Under this policy, shareholders are being forced to divest (invest) when leverage is low (high), which shifts risk from long-horizon to short-horizon dividend strips. This framework also generates stock volatility that is higher than long-horizon dividend volatility, even with constant market prices of risk.
