Languages of publication
Iranian, in the recent history, faced two major economic crises which were in April 2005 and February 2014. In this paper, we examine whether the risk return relationship as well as the effects of two macroeconomic variables, output growth and inflation, on real stock returns and volatility changed or not due to these crises using three different monthly indices of the Tehran Stock Exchange. We study the effects both for the whole period and the subperiods that we determine regarding the times of the crises using EGARCH-M framework. Our results show that the risk-return relationship changes as the economy moves from one regime to another. Moreover, the crises cause some changes on the relationships between stock returns and macroeconomic variables. The greatest impact of the crisis is seen in the Financial Sector.
