The logic to evaluate the common factor variance for the Factor Models 45 TALKING POINTS Bear in mind that the APT model is a linear model; that is, the return is a linear combination of factor returns.
The next step is the analysis step. It involves identifying the ARMA model used to generate the given time series data. An ARMA model is completely identified when we are given the white noise series and the rule to generate the time series from the white noise realizations. Sometimes, the white noise series is implicit. The estimated ARMA parameters are, however, stated explicitly. But why should we try to fit an ARMA model to a given data set? The answer is simply that ARMA models provide an empirical explanation for the data without concerning themselves with theoretical justifications.
They are a set of building-block portfolios with the property that their returns are uncorrelated with each other. Also, the return on any portfolio can be expressed as a linear combination of the returns on the eigen portfolios. However, the eigen portfolios are actually statistical artifacts deduced from data, and interpreting the results is a task that is easier said than done. So, when looking to answer questions from a valuation or a risk control standpoint, one would have to examine the returns closely to answer the question: What is the predominant theme or themes that characterize the eigen portfolio?
