This study investigates the empirical influence of financial stress on equity premium in the case of United States by using the wavelet transform framework. This new methodology enables the decomposition of timeseries at different time-frequencies. Generally, empirical results show strong evidence of significant linkage between financial stress on the stock markets. These findings confirm that financial stress is majority having the influence over equity premium in short run, but also for both medium and large time horizons.
