Macroeconomic Factors and Share Returns: An Analysis Using Emerging Market Data
AbstractThis paper investigates the extent to which global and local economic factors explain returns in emerging stock markets (ESMs). The economic factors are determined using principal components analysis. The results suggest that the local economic variables included in this study can be summarized by GDP, inflation, money and interest rates, while the selected global variables can be sufficiently characterized by world industrial production and world inflation. These components are then used as inputs into a regression analysis in order to explain the index returns of 13 ESMs over the period 1987-96. The analysis indicates that while world factors are significant in explaining ESM returns, local factors may also play a crucial role. Copyright @ 2002 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved.
