Economic events and key economic variables affect stock markets on a daily basis. Inflation is one such economic variable that influences share prices to some extent. This article focuses on two SADC countries, South Africa and Namibia, and measures the impact of inflation on share market prices in these countries. It can be concluded from the study that neither South African nor Namibian companies can offer investors a perfect hedge against inflation.
