LIQUIDITY AND VALUATION IN EAST AFRICAN SECURITIES MARKETS

By Bruce Hearn

Abstract

This study estimates liquidity premiums using the recently developed Liu measure within a multifactor capital asset pricing model including size premiums and a time-varying parameter model for the East African emerging markets of Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya together with London and South Africa. The evidence suggests that while size and liquidity effects are significant in the smaller emerging markets of Uganda and Kenya, they are less important in explaining returns in South Africa and London. Costs of equity are highest in Uganda followed by Kenya, with industrial and consumer non-cyclical sectors being lowest, and then South Africa and London. Copyright (c) 2009 The Author.
