Stocks with the potential for crashes in better market conditions are compensated by higher expected returns than stocks with the potential for equally severe crashes in worse market contexts. The impact of market context on returns is more pronounced among stocks with less institutional holdings and when the potential crash is rarer and bigger. The effect also becomes stronger in recent decades. Beta, size, book to market ratio, momentum, liquidity, investment growth, and profitability cannot explain this phenomenon, which is not driven by micro sized or penny stocks either. These results are consistent with the implication of the salience based asset pricing model.
