In order to avoid nonsynchronous trading effects and obtain unbiased and consistent parameters when using daily returns, the Scholes and Williams (1977) model has been used to estimate [Alpha] and [Beta].
First, we re-estimate the market model parameters in equation (1) using the Scholes-Williams and Dimson corrections to account for nonsynchronous trading.
Here, the parts are deburred, washed, dried, and then transported to a nonsynchronous automatic assembly system.
We start the assembly process in sequence, but because the process is nonsynchronous the deck may get shuffled," Harlos explained.
Monorail systems leave floor space free and fit well with nonsynchronous production methods.
Scholes and Williams (1977) and Dimson (1979) argue that nonsynchronous trading causes OLS estimators of market model parameters to be biased and inconsistent.
Mirrors are much more prominent in the octagon-shaped installation ,Spyglass, in which four projection screens alternate with four wall-size mirrors to create hallucinatory circuits of nonsynchronous imagery--streaming pictures of everyday life, cinematic effects, and a personal inventory of objects, subjects, and actions culled from footage assembled over fifteen years of looking at life through the lens of a Bolex.
27): "Procedures other than OLS for estimating the market model in the presence of nonsynchronous trading convey no clear-cut benefit in detecting abnormal performance.
Automation product line includes vibratory parts-feeding equipment, pin installation equipment, and nonsynchronous conveyor components and systems.
That means building a modular line that can be expanded easily with existing stations that can be reprogrammed, new stations will come in with their own controls, and all services including an extension of the nonsynchronous transfer line," says David L Brown, president, Cargill Detroit Manufacturing Systems Div, Clawson, MI.

For example, the presence of nonsynchronous trading may bias the coefficient estimates of the market model parameters.
