Summary/Abstract: We investigate the factors influencing returns of European oil and gas companies. Our data set consist of 60 European oil and gas firms: 39 representing developed Western European countries and 21 from Central and Eastern Europe. We run regressions for the following market equilibrium models: standard CAPM, Fama-French three-factor model, Carhart four-factor model and Pastor-Stambaugh five-factor model using different variables as a market proxy, furthermore we extend all the models with the oil price as well. We also distinct different situations regarding the movement of general market prices, and oil price as well to examine regime dependency of the applied model.
