Putting the results in context
In general, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single index models, because they can contain large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single index models, the recommended strategy use combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which incorporates different data.
