Is the mean return shock ever defined? It should be (by construction) pretty close to zero if it is just what you would think.

That's statistical gibberish. The residuals (for any of the dependent variables) should be roughly mean zero. (Not exactly mean zero as you would see in a linear regression, but pretty close). So basically this is taking pretty much a random number with random sign, multiplying it by a constant and saying that it has some meaning. If it were mean absolute value, that would make at least some sense.
