Abstract: Is asset pricing integrated across Islamic and non-Islamic stocks? To answer this question, we identify and replicate 167 equity anomalies from the finance literature in over 1500 stocks from the Middle East equity markets for years 1997–2017. To determine whether Islamic or market-wide factors better explain the cross-section of returns, we evaluate their performance with the CAPM (Sharpe, 1964), Fama and French (1993) three-factor model, Carhart (1997) four-factor model, and Fama and French (2015) five-factor model. Only 27 of the anomalies prove profitable. The five-factor model copes best with the cross-section of returns, confirming its superiority over other models. The Islamic factors better explain the cross-section of returns than the market-wide factors, pointing to at least a partial market segmentation. The results are verified by a batter of additional tests, including cross-sectional regressions, examination of one-way and two-way sorted portfolios, tests for monotonic relationships, and factor redundancy checks. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.
