Log returns and coefficient transformation 

Here was the specific question on log returns from this quant exchange website.

While for other regressions where the independent might be log transformed (e.g Housing prices) to interpret the coefficient I would need to do (exp(coefficient)-1)*100 to get the impact of a one unit increase of the independent variable on the depend variable in percent (relative)

Does this also apply for log returns or are the coefficients I receive a percentage point increase (absolute)

There are some great answers here for you math nerds. I just wish it would be easier for us mortals to figure it out. This is why quants are well paid and know the markets.
