Abstract

Using data from 2003-2007, we calculate the systematic risk and cost of equity for firms listed on USE; Preliminary estimates show that nominal Cost of equity capital reduced over time from 63.24 percent (January 2005 to January 2006) to 18% (February 2006 to March 2007). The efficient frontier shifted below in the period considered to suggest a general lowering of expected returns on portfolios, re-affirming the notion that stock markets lead to reduction in the cost of funds; and thus a viable option to bank finance that at the moment is considered prohibitive with annual percentage rates of between 20-25.
