Investigating dependence structures of stocks that are related to one another should be an important consideration in managing a stock portfolio, among other investment strategies. To capture various dependence features, we employ copula to overcome the limitations of traditional linear correlations. Financial time series data is typically characterized by volatility clustering of returns that influences an estimate of a stock’s future price. To deal with the volatility and dependence of stock returns, this paper provides procedures of combining a copula with a GARCH model which leads to the construction of a multivariate distribution. Using the copula-based GARCH approach that describes the tail dependences of stock returns, we carry out Monte Carlo simulations to predict a company’s movements in the stock market. The procedures are illustrated in two technology stocks, Apple and Samsung.
