Abstract: Tests for abnormal returns which are derived under the assumption of cross sectional
independence are invalid if the abnormal returns are cross sectionally correlated. We
model the cross sectional correlation by a spatial autoregressive model. The abnormal
returns of .rms belonging to the same group according to their business activities are
correlated, whereas the abnormal returns of .rms belonging to different groups are
uncorrelated. Tests for abnormal returns corrected for cross sectional correlation are
derived. An empirical application to US stock returns around Bear Stearns.collapse
and Lehman Brothers.bankruptcy in 2008 is provided as an illustration. (JEL C21,
C22, G12).
