The three factors are (1) market risk, (2) the outperformance of small versus big companies, and (3) the outperformance of high book/market versus small book/market companies. However, the size and book/market ratio themselves are not in the model. For this reason, there is academic debate about the meaning of the last two factors. The Positive Youth Justice Initiative (PYJI) and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency have published four new briefs that highlight how PYJI’s partners in 11 California counties are accelerating a statewide movement to transform the youth justice system.

The chart below shows the returns of the S&P and three factors (long-short) since sorted by positive and negative quarters of real GDP growth. We can observe that equity markets as well as the Value and Size factors generated positive returns in periods of economic growth and negative returns in periods of decline.
