Abstract

This paper assesses the predictive ability of the Box‐Jenkins methodology when utilized in an on‐going setting. Three procedures are utilized to update the original forecasts generated from the Box‐Jenkins models: adaptive forecasting, re‐estimation, and re‐identification. The results indicate that constant monitoring of the structure and parameters of the time‐series models are necessary through time. It appears that adaptive forecasting techniques are insufficient to update BJ time‐series models when used in conjunction with quarterly earnings data. Re‐estimation is recommended as each new observation becomes available. Re‐identification procedures are recommended on a less frequent basis.
