Therefore, this research is to study the volatility forecasting performance of various forecasting models for the Malaysian real estate stocks. Daily returns of 33 Malaysian real estate stocks are used in this study. The forecasting models are ad-hoc methods, generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (GARCH) models, and the newly proposed Smooth Transition Exponential Smoothing (STES) methods. Using Mean Absolute Error (MAE) as the evaluation criterion, the newly proposed STES models is found to be the most accurate forecasting model among the comparison models.
