Abstract

This study attempts to examine the effect of financial fundamentals information using CAMELS ratios and macroeconomics variables surrogated by interest rate, exchange rate, and inflation rate toward stock return. By employing panel data analysis (Pooled Least Squared Model), the results reveal that several financial ratios perform a bit contrary to the theory, in which the ratio of CAR shows positive sign but insignificantly contributes to stock returns. Also, the ratio of NPL does not affect the return. In fact, ROE and LDR positively and significantly contribute toward banks’ stock return. Meanwhile, NIM and BOPO show negative signs. The other macroeconomic variables, interest rate (IR), exchange rate (ER) and inflation rate (INF) are consistent with the a priori expectation, in which those variables negatively and significantly contribute to stock return of 16 banks, for the observation period from 2002 to 2011 in the Indonesian banking sector.

Abstract

This research investigates the existence of stock market integration between Turkey and the Eurozone. In this study, the performance of Turkey’s stock exchange is proxied by the BIST100, and the EURO STOXX50 is employed as a proxy for the Eurozone index. We hypothesize that there is a dynamic relationship between Turkey and the Eurozone. Methodologically, our research was conducted by employing monthly time series data obtained from EIKON datastream International. In order to demonstrate the extent of equity market integration between Turkey and Eurozone, a vector autoregression model (VAR) was utilized. According to the results, there is no co-integration between these two equity markets. This is in line with the output of residual matrix test, where the correlation between these two market indices was found to be low. However, a Granger causality test indicated that there was a low one-way contribution from Turkey to the Eurozone index during the observation period.
