Decile rank

(redirected from Decile Ranks)

Decile rank

Performance over time, rated on a scale of 1-10. 1 indicates that a mutual fund's return is in the top 10% of funds being compared; while 3 means the return is in the top 30%.

Decile Rank

In funds and securities, measure of performance on a scale of 1 to 10. A rank of 1 indicates that the fund or security performed in the top 10% of similar funds or securities, while a rank of 10 indicates performance in the bottom 10%. See also: Decile.

To measure the economic significance of the results, we replicate the cross-sectional Fama-MacBeth (1973) regressions after transforming all of the independent variables into decile ranks and then standardize these ranks to take values between zero and one.
In the Internet Appendix (Table AI), we report regressions based on standardized decile ranks. Using the same controls as in Table II, Panel C, the difference between NEWS1 in the highest short interest decile and NEWS1 in the lowest short interest decile is -0.07 (the coefficient of Short in the first column of Table AI).
They run the following Fama-MacBeth regression using the decile ranks of AQ for the period t=1970-2001, where regressions (2) and (3) test the cost of debt effect and cost of equity effect, respectively.
The higher the final decile rank, the more likely this firm-year is misclassified.
Similar to the baseline regression, all the independent variables were transformed into decile ranks scaled by nine.
In Panel C, SAR1 is regressed on scaled decile ranks, ranging from 0 to 1, of the independent variables, each year.
The occupations' local decile ranks were compared to their national decile ranks.
The measures used were (1) the correlations of hospital rank as determined by their regression and standardized regression coefficients (regression coefficients divided by their standard errors); (2) the proportions of hospitals estimated to have statistically significantly high regression coefficients by means of the claims model but not by the more complete clinical model; and (3) the changes in decile ranks of hospitals caused by the inclusion of clinical variables.
The historical decile ranks of current interest rates are strongly associated with the ratio of debt issued to capital expenditures.
Consistent with our expectations that price differentials are increasing in [[beta].sub.AROE], the Spearman rank correlation between decile ranks of [[beta].sub.AROE] and decile mean PDIFF is 0.79 (p < 0.005).
This specification assumes that size-adjusted returns are linearly related to the scaled decile ranks of the control variables.
