Schwartz's criteria identified three factors as sigmficant in the return-generating process for Sample 1 and four factors for Samples 2, 3, and 4. The conclusion from examining the number of factors present in the return-generating process of each sample separately is somewhat ambiguous. It rests on the choice of the test used to determine sigmficance. The answer would seem to be either four, ten, or more factors. This ambiguity illustrates how cautious one should be about placing too much reliance on statistical sigmficance in deciding on the number of factors.

We stopped at two indexes because, after removing two indexes, the covariance between unique return, E(eiej), for our portfolios was so close to zero that extracting additional indexes was not feasible. 13 First, we examined which model serves as a better forecaster of future returns. Within the period that the factors are extracted, the two-index model would explain more than the one index. If the second index is spurious, however, or if sensitivity to the second index is unstable over time, then the single-index model might well work best.

L4 Usually, the first principal component looks somewhat like a market index with all stocks entering with positive weights. Then, search for the index, constrained to be orthogonal (uncorrelated with the first index), that explains as much as possible of the unexplained portion of the variance-covariance matrix. Additional principal components are then extracted until the user decides that they are picking up random influences in the data rather than real information. Of course, a prior estimate of the number of relevant influences will narrow the choice of how many principal components to extract.
