English This thesis analyzes different theoretical and empirical aspects related to the use of the information in asset pricing. As a main innovation I extend the asset pricing literature proposing a new highly flexible technique for the estimation of the markets subjective distribution of future returns. Applying this technique to different problems I answer to some long-lasting puzzles present in literature. The contribution of this project to the literature is two-fold: first, in line with the new findings of Ross (2015) but from a fully different prospective I propose a new technique to estimate the market's subjective distribution of future returns using, jointly, stock and options data. Second, after studying the theoretical reason behind the superiority of the proposed technique, I use it for different empirical applications.
