This study aim to explore the role of the macroeconomic variables and stock prices for emerging economies perspective. Further, the study examines the association between the macroeconomic variable and stock prices across the panel of India and Brazil. The study utilizes monthly data from 2000M1-2016M08. We employ various panel econometric techniques. The findings confirm that the long run relationship between variables and unidirectional causality. The results also reveal that GDP, inflation, exchange rate, interest rate and stock prices play an important role in economic development.
