If the answer is yes, that would imply these firm-specific attributes also contribute to the formation of market expectations on both the market-wise fluctuations and corporate finance events, even though the corporate finance events are considered idiosyncratic or diversifiable risks.

Justification on which model is more appropriate for the normal returns should take us back to the concept or perspective of systematic risk. The included variables should not be based merely on statistical significance in either model selection criteria or tests. More importantly, the verification should be deeper in finding the nondiversifiability of these included variables or attributes. In all these cases of model specification for normal returns, the arguments may be more succinctly solved by further investigation on the nondiversifiable or systematic features of the included variables or attributes in empirical asset pricing models for normal returns.

However, to verify the model specification, one needs to be cautious about the included explanatory variables. Although many candidate variables seem useful in forecasting the returns, they are not necessarily genuine systematic variables that explain the capital market equilibrium. Common-sense reasoning may be considered for filtering the returns thoroughly with all seemingly significant variables to provide cleaner abnormal returns. Yet, inclusion of nonsystematic firm-specific variables in the expected rates of returns may, in fact, result in incorrect conclusion due to possible overrejection in statistics applied.
