The Capital Asset Pricing Model or CAPM, has been widely used as a model of returns by academicians, market players and market analysts. However, in an emerging markets context, where the availability of the information about Beta Factor is inevitably rare, macroeconomic factors proved to better explain the movement of the stock price in the equity market.
