It is not as simple as changing a value. You need to replace the current factor loadings by feasible values. Furthermore, factor loadings have dependencies between them, that means that when you change one of them, the other factors are affected by this change. In the CCruncher Technical Document there is a proposal to do so. It propose to estimate the ...


If you are doing something cross-sectional (like Fama-Macbeth regressions) you can just use the ratios where you would put the factor loadings (i.e. betas from the time series regs). You probably want to do some kind of transformation on the ratio to make it well-behaved first though. If you want an actual factor based on the ratio, you can use "factor ...
