This paper compares the performance characteristics of penalty estimators, namely, LASSO and ridge regression(RR), with the least squares estimator (LSE), restricted estimator (RE), preliminary test estimator (PTE) and the Stein-type estimators. Under the assumption of orthonormal design matrix ofa given regression model, we find that the RR estimator dominates the LSE, RE, PTE, Stein-type estimators and LASSO estimator uniformly, while, similar to [17], neither LASSO nor LSE, PTE and Stein-Typeestimators dominates the other. Our conclusions are based on the analysis of L2-risks and relative risk efficiencies (RRE) together with the RRE related tables and graphs.
