This report will test Basu's (1997) hypothesis that the slope coefficient and -value from a regression of annual earnings on annual returns is higher for negative returns than for positive returns. A cross-section of UK firm data with 931 observations from the year 1996 will be used as a sample to test this hypothesis. The report will start with a short discussion of the underlying economic rationale that is thought to cause this behaviour. It will then define the sample, regression models and variables that are used to test the hypothesis and present the empirical results. The report will conclude with an interpretation of the results and relate these to Basu's findings.
