In this paper earnings, dividends and stock prices are modelled within a plausible economic framework. The first stage in the analysis involves characterization of the dynamic behavior of earnings, evidence was found for mean reverting behavior in the long term, and weaker evidence for mean reversion in the short term. The relationship between dividends and earnings is then examined using a modified form of the Lintner model. The empirical results suggest the modified formulation performs as effectively as the original Lintner approach. Using these findings, we then develop the functional form of the corresponding share price relationship. As a consequence of using a generalized model for earnings we are able to examine theoretically, the effect of different earnings processes on share price behavior. The empirical results imply that changes in earnings per share and earnings per share are important in explaining returns.
