In the Capital Asset Pricing Model, the market risk premium is estimated over a long period of time because: more data is always better than less. a longer holding period gives a more reliable estimate because it is, in effect, a larger sample size. almost all investors hold stocks for many years, so it matches their investment horizon. historical returns are the best indicators of future returns.
