Abstract

The main focus of this paper is to investigate the long run dynamic relationship between Shariah and non shariah stock indices in four GCC countries namely Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain.. The panel techniques are used for the estimations. The traditional panel methods used are the fixed effects and the random effects models. However, these methods are restricted in that they assume away dynamics and heterogeneity of the coefficients. We augment these methods by applying pooled mean group (PMG) and mean group (MG) estimators which allow for both dynamics and heterogeneity of the coefficients. One particular interest of ours is the test of the assumption of PMG that the long-run coefficients are constant unlike the MG estimates. We provide results of all four estimators and compare their estimates which have implications for the policy makers.
