  • Long_and_short_term_dynamic_causal_transmission_amongst_international_stock_markets_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Masih, Rumi; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2001)

  • This paper investigates the dynamic causal linkages amongst nine major international stock price indexes. In order to gauge the causal transmission patterns we employ very recent methods of: (i) vector error-correction modeling and (ii) level VAR modeling with possibly integrated and cointegrated processes, advocated by: (i) Toda and Phillips (Econometrica, 61 (1993) 1367) and (ii) Toda and Yamamoto (J. Econometrics, 66 (1995) 225), respectively. The paper illustrates how such methods may be appropriately augmented in a compatible fashion to unearth previously unfounded linkage properties inherent amongst a system of stock price indexes. In particular, we demonstrate that previous res...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Padli, Jaharudin; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2009)

  • Economists recognise that macroeconomic and financial variables have an impact on housing prices. In this study, we focus on the relationship between housing prices and stock prices in Thailand using quarterly data from the first quarter (Q1) of 1995 till the last quarter (Q4) of 2006. The analysis is conducted within a multivariate setting that incorporates the Stock Exchange of Thailand Composite Index and housing prices, the real gross domestic product and the consumer price index. In this paper, the autoregressive distributive lags (ARDL) cointegration test is applied to examine the variables' long-run relationships. We then employ the ARDL, DOLS and ML approaches to estimate the ...

  • Portfolio_diversification_benefits_at_different_investment_horizons_during_the_Arab_uprisings_buriev_et_al.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Buriev, Abdul Aziz; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Zainal, Mohd-Pisal; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2018)

  • This study is an initial attempt at investigating the extent to which portfolio diversification benefits at different investment horizons are available to a Turkish investor from investment in MENA countries exposed to the Arab spring based on MGARCH-DCC and Wavelet techniques on daily data spanning from 2005 to 2015. The findings tend to suggest that the Turkish investors may not benefit from investment in Egypt for almost all investment horizons but may have moderate benefits from Lebanon up to the investment horizons of 32 - 64 days and longer. However, Turkish investors may benefit from Oman excepting the longer investment horizons. In the long run all stock holding periods exceed...

  • pre_post_crisis_analysis_stock_price_exchange_rate_baharom_royfaizal_muzafar.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Chong, Razali Royfaizal; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2008)

  • The furore and chaos created by the Asian financial crisis have ignited many studies on numerous subjects, and it is believed that the crisis has changed the way nations being administered and policies formed and implemented especially those regarding monetary and fiscal policies. In this study Johansen (1991) cointegration method was used and the period was divided into two sub periods, albeit pre crisis and post crisis. The results obtained are similar with a number of past literatures pointing to no long run relationship between stock price and exchange rate for both periods.

  • Price_discovery_between_informationally_linked_markets_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Hodgson, Allan; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Masih, Rumi (2003)

  • The dynamic nature of the price information transfer when stock and futures markets switch between different price trading phases is examined. This is undertaken by decomposing Australian stock indexes and share price index futures contract data into bear- and bull-market phases and analyzing the change in the power of the bidirectional information feedback between the futures market and small, medium, and large stocks. Results support the hypothesis that the nature of the price-discovery process varies with the trading phase. In particular, during the bull phase small stocks show a marked increase in price exogeneity and futures prices contain relatively less price-sensitive fundamen...

  • pricing_efficiency_stock_rights_issues_Malaysia_edilabd_obiyathulla.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abd Sukor, Mohd Edil; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2010)

  • This article undertakes an empirical examination of pure rights issues in Malaysia. Though pricing efficiency is the main focus, we also examine related issues. We study a total of 38 pure rights issues that occurred over the 8-year period January 1998 to December 2005. Using two alternative valuation models, the adjusted Black–Scholes Call Option Model (BSOPM) and the traditional Implied Rights Valuation Model (IRVM), we find the Malaysian market to be inefficient in pricing the rights. Mispricing is quite extensive with a predominance of overpricing. Significantly, both pricing models, despite their different theoretical underpinnings produce similar results. These results are furth...

  • Pricing efficiency of the 3 month KLIBOR futures contracts an empirical analysis.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Razak, Marina; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2009-03-09)

  • This study is an empirical investigation of the pricing efficiency of Malaysia’s interest rate futures contract, the 3-month Kuala Lumpur Interbank Offered Rates (KLIBOR) futures contract. This article also examines several issues related to pricing efficiency. The study spans the contract’s entire 10-year history, June 1996 to June 2006. In line with findings in other markets, we find a pre-ponderance of overpricing. Almost 80% of the mispricing constituted overpricing of the futures contract. Mean overpricing was 8 basis points. Our results lend support to the hypothesis that there may be a ‘Futures Habitat Premium’. Underpricing, though less frequent was of a larger magnitude and h...

  • rationalizing_value_premium_emerging_markets_eskandar.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ebrahim, Muhammed-Shahid; Girmab, Sourafel; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah; William, Jonathan (2014)

  • We reconfirm the presence of value premium in emerging markets. Using the Brazil–Turkey–India–China (BTIC) grouping during a period of substantial economic growth and stock market development, we attribute the premium to the investment patterns of glamour firms. We conjecture based on empirical evidence that glamour firms hoard cash, which delays undertaking of growth options, especially in poor economic conditions. Whilst this helps to mitigate business risk, it lowers market valuations and drives down expected returns. Our evidence supports arguments that the value premium is explained by economic fundamentals rather than a risk factor that is common to all firms

  • short-horizon_asymmetry_conditional_mean_asean_stock_market_returns_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2010)

  • This paper describes the return patterns of six ASEAN markets (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) using an autoregressive exponential GARCH-in mean model, also known as AR-EGARCH(1, 1)-M. Estimating the model for each market using daily data from August 2000 to May 2010, we find these markets generally have quick mean-reversion speeds but quite distinct patterns of return dynamics. In the Indonesian market, the evidence seems to strongly suggest asymmetric mean reversion and overreaction of the market during downturns. The Vietnamese market exhibits the most persistent return autocorrelation with some evidence pointing to higher persistence during ...

  • stock_market_and_aggregate_consumption_asymmetry_mansor_ibrahim.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2010)

  • The purpose of this paper is to analyze the influences of real share prices on aggregate consumption for Malaysia with the focus on whether there is asymmetry in the long-run relation of the two variables. The paper specifies aggregate consumption to depend on real income and real share prices. Alternatively, imposing long-run budget constraint, the paper specifies the relation between aggregate consumption and real share prices as ratio to real income. Then, it applies an asymmetric cointegration and error correction modeling. The cointegration tests indicate the presence of a long-run relation between consumption-income ratio and share price-income ratio. More interestingly, while c...
