  • African Finance Journal: Do banks in sub-Saharan Africa with market power
           benefits from monetary policy?
    • Authors: Amidu; Mohammed
      Abstract: This paper assesses the competitive environments of SSA banks with the view of analysing whether banks with market power profit from monetary policy. It employs various specifications of Lerner index as a measure of market power for 264 banks across 24 SSA countries. Tightening of monetary policy, high credit risk, risk aversion, and the high labour cost contribute to the high spread of banks in SSA. The results also reveal that a spread among banks with market power is significantly more sensitive to the monetary policy changes. The overall results suggest that banks in Africa gain from monetary policy shocks.

  • African Finance Journal: Does investor sentiment explain the seasonality
           of overreation? examples of the Nigerian and South African equity
           markets
    • Authors: Raji; Rafiq, Ojah, Kalu
      Abstract: We investigate, for the first time, equity return overreaction and associated January effect in the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE); with both of these market anomalies also examined in the South African equity market (JSE), mainly to assess their likely persistence in the JSE. We find evidence of overreaction and seasonality in the NSE, in contrast to past studies that found the NSE to be weak form efficient. The overreaction in the NSE is also accompanied by January and June month-of-the-year effects. For the JSE, there is now no evidence of overreaction; thus, suggesting that overreaction may have been arbitraged away over time. Although, a January effect is still recorded in the JSE, it is an "October effect" that is now found to be robust. Importantly, the NSE shows evidence of congruity of return and investor sentiment, which suggests that investor sentiment, can explain seasonality of overreaction in the Nigerian market. Overall,our results point to useful policy and trading strategy guides for these two major regional equity markets of Africa.

  • African Finance Journal: Correlation surprise : the African and South
           African case
    • Authors: Armstrong; Joanne, Bradfield, David
      Abstract: This paper assesses the usefulness of monitoring market turbulence, return magnitude surprise and correlation surprise as potential signals to assist investors in timing de-risking strategies in the South African and African market settings. The analysis follows Kinlaw and Turkington (2014) who recently proposed the measures of magnitude and correlation surprise by decomposing the market turbulence measure. We find that in periods when correlation surprise spikes that in both the South African and African market environments subsequent periods are characterised by higher risk and lower returns. Our findings thus corroborate the predictive capability of the components of market turbulence.

  • African Finance Journal: Short and long-term dynamics of herd behaviour at
           the Johannesburg stock exchange
    • Authors: Niyitegeka; Olivier, Tewari, Devi Datt
      Abstract: This study uses the Auto-regressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) approach to cointegration to examine the short- and long-term dynamics of investors' herd behaviour at the JSE. The results from the ARDL model suggest that herding exists at the JSE. The study also noted that herd behaviour takes place with lapses in time; however the unrestricted error correction results suggest that such behaviour has a high speed of adjustment, implying that herding is a short-lived phenomenon. Since the direction of the market affects investors' behaviour, the study also investigated the asymmetric effects of herding behaviour during rising versus falling markets. While herding behaviour was identified during a rising market, the results did not support the presence of herd behaviour in a falling market.

  • African Finance Journal: Capital structure, profitability and firm value :
           panel evidence of listed firms in Kenya
    • Authors: Kodongo; Odongo, Mokoaleli-Mokoteli, Thabang, Maina, Leonard N.
      Abstract: We investigate the relationship between leverage and the financial performance of listed firms in Kenya. We find strong evidence that leverage significantly, and negatively, affects firm profitability but does not affect firm value. Our results are robust to alternative panel specifications and firm size. Our results also suggest that asset tangibility, sales growth and firm size are important determinants of profitability. Surprisingly, asset tangibility consistently has a negative relationship with profitability. For small firms, we find that sales growth and firm size are important factors driving value. Yet, the same variables do not drive the value of large firms.

  • African Finance Journal: Implications of the Eurozone crisis for monetary
           unions in sub-Saharan Africa
    • Authors: Mullineux; Andy
      Abstract: This paper draws implications from the 2010-2012 'Eurozone Crisis' for currency and proposed monetary unions in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). A wide variety of currency and monetary unions exist, or are proposed, including 'currency boards'.Most involve a potential mix of 'core' and 'periphery' countries without the prospect of prompt major trade gains. Most also mix net commodity exporters with net importers subject to asymmetric commodity price shocks. The experience of the Eurozone, with its well defined post crisis core and periphery countries, suggests that greater convergence and political and institutional preparation is required before a successful and fully fledged monetary union can be established.

  • African Finance Journal: Analysing sub-Saharan Africa trade patterns in
           the presence of regional trade agreements - the case of COMESA, SADC,
           ECCAS and ECOWAS
    • Authors: Darku; Alexander B., Appau, Adriana B.
      Abstract: This paper uses data on the four largest Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) insub-Saharan Africa to argue that the dynamic form of the gravity equation is the appropriate model to estimate the effect of RTAs on intra-African trade. The paper also suggests a better approach to examining trade relationship between members of RTAs and nonmembers. The paper uses System Generalized Method of Moments estimator to overcome econometric issues associated with estimating dynamic models with persistent variables. The paper reports three important findings. First, a formal model selection test confirmed that the dynamic gravity model performs better than the static version. Second, the creation of COMESA and SADC has led to significant increase in trade among members. ECOWAS has increased intra-ECOWAS trade but in total has reduced intra-African trade. ECCAS has had a negative impact on both intra-ECCAS and extra-ECCAS bilateral trade flows. Third, our proposed approach to examining member-nonmember trade relationships provided the true estimates as compared to results from employing the usual approach in the literature.

  • African Finance Journal: Interest rate pass-through, financial structure
           and monetary policy in South Africa
    • Authors: Aziakpono; Meshach J., Wilson, Magdalene K.
      Abstract: This paper investigates the pass-through of the official interest rate to market interest rates in South Africa, using symmetric and asymmetric error correction modelling techniques and monthly interest rates data for the period 1980 to2007. The study found that the speed of adjustment of market interest rates is high, but differs across the rates. The highest speed occurs in the lending rate,followed by Treasury bill rate, money market rate and commercial bank deposit rate, while government bond yield shows the least speed. A test of commercial bank interest rates confirms asymmetric adjustment. Commercial banks are becoming increasingly competitive in the credit market, while the converse is true for the deposit market, where collusive behaviour among banks is evident.
