The author presents asymptotic results for the class of pseudo-likelihood estimators in the autoregressive conditional heteroscedastic models introduced by Engle (1982). Unlike what is required for the quasi-likelihood estimator, some estimators in the class he considers do not require the finiteness of the fourth moment of the error density. Thus his method is applicable to heavy-tailed error distributions for
which moments higher than two may not exist.
