For example if the regression co-ef is positive implying positive risk premia, you sort them in ascending order of the factor, and opposite for negative co-ef. After that you percentile this sorted series and decide a ...

The very fact that when you do an OLS regression of x vs y you get a different result than when you regress y vs x tells you that OLS regression is probably not the right tool to construct a hedged ...

What I would do: run the regression twice. The first time use only the time periods with $I_{t-1} = 0$ The resulting Alpha and Beta will be estimates of $\alpha_0,\beta_0$ Now run the regression a second time, using the other data points, those with $I_{t-1} = 1$. The resulting Alpha and Beta are estimates of $\alpha_0+\alpha_B,\beta_0+\beta_B$. By ...
