This study investigates the dynamics of beta by the asymmetric response of beta to bullish and bearish market environment on 50 stocks traded in Karachi Stock Exchange during 1993-2007. The results show that the betas increase (decrease) when the market is bullish (bearish). The results however suggest that investors receive a positive premium for accepting down-side risk, while a negative premium is associated with up-market beta. The results suggest that the conditional Fama and French three factor model has performed better than the conditional CAPM when news asymmetry was taken into account compared with the unconditional Fama and French three factor model and the unconditional dual-beta CAPM in explaining the relationship in beta and returns in case of Pakistani market.
