Resumen : This paper researches the sources of stock market risk influencing the pricing of 921 Latin American stocks and computes their corresponding opportunity cost (COE) over the period 1993-2004 by firm and sector. Running an adjusted version of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) it finds that systematic risk accounts on average for more than 32% of the variability in COE. A robustness test for the omission of international sources of undiversifiable risk suggests that both global market and real currencies portfolios do not add significant information to domestic market portfolios. Moreover, a second robustness check offers further evidence that well-diversified portfolios constructed by sorting stocks according to their size and book-to-market ratios a la Fama and French do not improve the goodness of fit in the regressions based on the adjusted version of CAPM.
