This study estimates and compares the trading profits generated by Jour different warrant pricing models. The assumption is that a "more correct" pricing model would demonstrate higher trading excess returns. In a large sample of about 19,000 warrant price observations, the constant elasticity of variance-based models are found to be superior to the Black-Schohs model in identifying mispriced warrants and profit opportunities. The advantage of the constant elasticity of variance models is particularly strong and statistically significant in out-of-the-money and long time to expiration warrants.
