This paper examines, using monthly data from 1995 to 2016, whether the oil, coal and electric-ity price shocks have an asymmetric influence on stock returns and inflation. The paper has employed Panel Structural Vector Autoregressive (PSVAR) model with various measures of the oil, coal and electricity price shocks on a dataset containing 1168 firms. Results from Pan-el-SVAR reveal that all oil, coal and electricity price specifications have an asymmetric impact on stock returns. Further, impulse response function reveals that the various dimensions of oil, coal and electricity price shocks lead to volatility in the response variables. It can also be ob-served that negative coal and electricity price shock has a radical impact on stock returns. Overall, the study on asymmetric impact of net oil and coal price increase, deserves attention from the investors and policy makers.
Keywords: Asymmetric impact, coal price shock, electricity price shock, GMM, Panel Struc-tural Vector Autoregressive (P SVAR) model.
