Abstract: Crude oil is one of the most important components and input for almost all manufacturing and service activities. Given its importance, oil has been among the major exports or imports of all the countries, especially for emerging economies to fuel their economic growth. Further oil prices have been very volatile during the recent decade. Therefore the present study is an attempt to examine the impact of oil prices on the stock returns of the most progressive emerging market group called EM7 (India, China, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico and Turkey). The study employs ARDL modelling as a novel technique of cointegration on monthly time series data for the most recent decade starting from 2010. The study found that oil price changes pose a significant positive impact on stock returns of oil exporting countries (Russia, Mexico, Brazil) while a negative significant impact on stock market returns of oil importing countries (India, China, Indonesia, Turkey).
