Using New Zealand market data, this paper provides additional evidence to support recent studies that investor sentiment moves stock prices and, in turn, influences expected returns. It also adds to a number of previous studies that investor sentiment influences the market volatility, and hence the mean-variance relation. The findings in this study help confirm that investor sentiment is time-varying.
