All these topics are good and in mainstream. It will be more appreciated if these topics are converted into themes and derived the topics out of these themes based on latest impact factor joutnals. Rather, associate good impact factor journals with these topics/themes for possible publication.

    Dear Dr. Yasir
    I was thinking of themes as well. Since this is the first post on asset pricing models, I kind of merged different topics in asset pricing in one. But in future, I shall add further classifications

I appreciate your effort. You may like to add the following:
> Estimation of Latent asset pricing factors that fit into time series and cross-sectional data.
> How sophisticated investors affect market efficiency?
> How scheduled macroeconomic announcements affect stock market returns?
> Intermediary asset pricing and financial crisis etc.
> Perhaps herding behavior in financial markets is also important … though I don’t expect it in case of PSE.

May Allah bless you
