Description

We compile raw data from the Datastream database for all stocks traded on the Spanish equity market. Particularly, we compile the following data series: (i) total return index (RI series), (ii) market value (MV series), (iii) market-to-book equity (PTBV series), (iv) total assets (WC02999 series), (v) return on equity (WC08301 series), (vi) dividend yield (DY series), (vii) price-to-earnings ratio (PE series), and (viii) effective tax rate (WC08346 series). We use the filters suggested by Griffin, Kelly, and Nardari (2010) for the Datastream database to exclude assets other than ordinary shares from our sample. Hence, our sample comprises 443 companies, including all firms that started trading within the time interval under study, as well as those that were delisted. As a proxy for the risk-free rate, we use the three-month Treasury Bill rate for Spain, as provided by the OECD. Accordingly, the dataset comprises the following series: 1. Spain_9_Portfolios_SIZE_BEME: Monthly returns for 9 size-book-to-market equity portfolios, following the Fama and French (1993) methodology. (Raw data source: Datastream database) 2. Spain_9_Portfolios_DY_PE: Monthly returns for 9 dividend yield-price-to-earnings ratio, following the Fama and French (1993) methodology. (Raw data source: Datastream database) 3. Spain_9_Portfolios_SIZE_TR: Monthly returns for 9 size-effective tax rate portfolios, following the Fama and French (1993) methodology. (Raw data source: Datastream database) 4. Spain_FF_3_Factors: Monthly returns for the constituents of the three classic factors of Fama and French, following the Fama and French (1993) methodology. (Raw data source: Datastream database) 5. Spain_FF_5_Factors: Monthly returns for the constituents of the five factors of Fama and French, following the Fama and French (2015) methodology. (Raw data source: Datastream database) 6. Spain_RF: Three-month Treasury Bill rate for Spain. (Raw data source: OECD) 7. Spain_Avg_Tax_Rate: Value-weighted effective tax rate paid by companies traded in Spain.
