corresponds to a study that examines the lagged short run and long-term
relationships between output growth and related index returns of the industrial

relationship using quarterly data for a B maximum time period of 22 years ranging from 1994(Q4) to 2017(Q4). The
study used the data to conduct correlation, co-integration as well as causality
testing on the aforementioned relationship. Specifically, the data used consists of
seasonally adjusted real quarterly growth and equity return data of the
financial and industrial sectors of the G-7 economies. All data is publicly
available and was obtained and aggregated from Bloomberg. The financial and
