A note on value investing in the UAE stock market

Mateusz Mikutowski , George D. Kambouris , Adam Zaremba


Value investing is one of the most popular stockpicking strategies employed in financial markets. We investigate its effectiveness in the United Arab Emirates. We examine the performance of 124 firms in the period from January 2004 to March 2019. We analyze portfolios from one-way sorts on several well-known valuation ratios: earnings-to-price, book-to-market, EBITDA -to-EV, and dividend yield. Our results demonstrate a powerful value effect in the UAE stock markets. The long-short strategies based on valuation ratios display high raw and risk-adjusted returns. Our results are robust to many considerations.
