Description of 6 Portfolios Formed on Size and Profitability for Emerging Markets

Monthly Returns:

 

July 1991–September 2019

 

 

 

Annual Returns:

 

1992–2018

 

 

 

Construction:

 

All returns are in U.S. dollars, include dividends and capital gains, and are not continuously compounded. We sort stocks in a country into two market cap and three profitability (OP) groups at the end of June of each year t.

Big stocks are those in the top 90% of June market cap for the country, and small stocks are those in the bottom 10%. The OP breakpoints for big and small stocks in a country are the 30th and 70th percentiles of OP for the big stocks of the country.

We use size and OP breakpoints for each country to allocate the stocks to the country portfolios. The independent 2x3 sorts on size and OP produce six value-weight portfolios, small weak (Low OP), small neutral, small robust (high OP), big weak, big neutral, and big robust.
