Abstract

2020 is a challenging year for humans because the whole world was under attack of COVID-19, which is considered the most transmissible virus throughout human history. This pandemic has caused an unprecedented negative impact on people’s lives and the world’s economy. In addition, the impact of the pandemic on the stock market is nonnegligible, as well. This article is mainly centered on the impact of COVID-19 on the stock market of four specific resource industries, which are Coal, Oil, Mines, and Gold, by using mathematical models. The models include the CAPM model, Fama-French Three-factor model, and Fama-French Five-factor model. To obtain the impact of the COVID-19, by using the data of the expected return (Ri) of the industries, a regression analysis is performed on each factor of the Fama-French Five-factor model and the expected return of the stock market of the four industries before and after the epidemic, and obtain the impact of the epidemic on the stock market of the industry by observing the performance of the factors. The results of the multiple linear regression indicate that the epidemic has the greatest impact on the stock market of the gold industry because the four factors of the gold industry have undergone significant changes before and after the epidemic. For the Coal and the Oil industry, only the factor of HML can present the impact of the epidemic. COVID-19 contributes the least impact for the mines industry because whether the factors are significant does not change.
