dc.description.abstractWe study own and rival risk in a dynamic duopoly with a homogeneous output good. A competitor's options to adjust capacity reduce own-firm risk through a simple hedging channel. For example, if a rival possesses a growth option, an increase in industry demand directly enhances current profits but also encourages value-reducing competitor expansion. As a consequence, when a leader and a follower emerge in equilibrium, risk dynamics depart substantially from previously-studied simultaneous move benchmarks. Own-firm and competitor required returns tend to move together through contractions and oppositely during expansions, providing testable new empirical predictions.en_US
