I would like to point out a recent paper by Lewellen, Nagel and Shaken which has changed a little bit the way factor models are tested. The standard procedure was to run time series regression of a factor model on Fama&French 25 size and BE/ME sorted portfolios to obtain factor loadings, and then cross sectional regressions using $R^2$ as a good measure ...

For calculating the AIC for factor models, I calculate the likelihood based on the multivariate distribution of the factor model. I try to make any assumptions as explicit as possible. Bayesians typically do not use the (so-called) BIC. WAIC (Watanabe-Akaike Information Criteria) is becoming more common among Bayesians. When thinking about the AIC, you ...

Thanks for the answers and comments above. In particular to Eric Brady, who had me reading a lot of Bayesian papers. In the end, I think the answer to the question is that on the monthly time-frame robust factor algorithms aren't really necessary. On daily and lower time frames, large spikes in returns due to events (earnings ect.) can really mess with ...

I've often thought about the same thing. To try and figure out some concrete (in my opinion) information about a stock or mutual fund, I wrote something in Python to simulate: buying stock at some interval stock paying dividend at some interval adjusting returns for inflation subtracting out fees (if a mutual fund or something with an expense ratio) do ...
