Abstract

Mansur Masih3 Abstract This research studies the benefit of the practice of Restricted Short Selling (RSS) on the Islamic stocks. Benefit is defined as the influence of the application of RSS on the stock returns and ultimately, on the market. Malaysia is used as a case study. Using dynamic heterogeneous panel techniques, it is found that RSS brings long-term positive influence on the stocks. However, panel Granger causality analysis implied that it is indeed stock return which causes RSS, not the other way around. Henceforth, our findings tend to suggest to the policy makers, to revisit the permissibility of RSS in the Malaysian Islamic capital market (ICM). Moving forward, instead of having restricted short selling, a vibrant Islamic capital market should promote risk sharing instruments coupled with strengthened information dissemination.
