Systematic risk estimation is widely applied by investors and managers in order to predict risks in the market. One of the most applied measures of risk is the so-called Capital Asset Pricing Model, shortly CAPM. It has been studied empirically focusing on the impact of return interval on the betas. This paper lies in this topic and attempts to estimate the CAPM at different time scales for GCC markets by adapting a wavelet method to examine the relationship between the return of the stock and its systematic risk at different time scales. The main novelty is by applying non-uniform intervals of time. Differently from existing literature, we use random ones. The proposed procedure is acted empirically on a sample corresponding to Saudi Tadawul market as the most important GCC representative market actively traded over the period January 01, 2013 to September 20, 2018, which is characterized by many political, economic and financial movements such as Qatar embargo, Yemen war, NEOM project, 2030 KSA vision and the Arab spring effects. The findings in the present work may be good basis for understanding current and future GCC markets situation and may be thus a basis for investors' decisions in such markets.
