This study examines the relevance of idiosyncratic risk in explaining the monthly cross-sectional returns of REIT stocks. Contrary to the CAPM theory, a significant positive relationship is found between idiosyncratic volatility and the cross-sectional returns. This suggests that firm-specific risk matters in REIT pricing. The regression results further show that once idiosyncratic risk is controlled for in the asset-pricing model, the size and book-to-market equity ratio factors ceased to be significant. The explanatory power of the momentum effect remains robust in the presence of idiosyncratic risk. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.||Source Title:||Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/46157||ISSN:||08955638||DOI:||10.1007/s11146-007-9091-1|
