We investigate the asymptotic distributions of coordinates of regression M-estimates in the moderate p / n regime, where the number of covariates p grows proportionally with the sample size n. Under appropriate regularity conditions, we establish the coordinate-wise asymptotic normality of regression M-estimates assuming a fixed-design matrix. Our proof is based on the second-order Poincaré inequality and leave-one-out analysis. Some relevant examples are indicated to show that our regularity conditions are satisfied by a broad class of design matrices. We also show a counterexample, namely an ANOVA-type design, to emphasize that the technical assumptions are not just artifacts of the proof. Finally, numerical experiments confirm and complement our theoretical results.
