Oil prices and transport sector returns: an international analysis

Oil prices and transport sector returns: an international analysis This study examines the role of oil prices in explaining ‘transport sector’ equity returns in 38 countries across the world. The findings of the study are strongly supportive of some role for oil prices in determining the transport sector returns for the countries falling within the ‘Developed’, ‘Europe’ and ‘G7’ groupings. In particular, by allowing for an asymmetry in our model, we find the oil factor to be jointly significant along with the presence of negative oil risk premium in these groupings. It is worth noting that these groups represent mature economies and stock markets. However, there appears to be no such evidence of a significant role for oil for other country groupings (named, Asia Pacific, Emerging and Latin America). Collectively these countries have a relatively short market history and/or are developing economies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting Springer Journals
