We investigate the value relevance of comprehensive income its components for a sample of 92 New Zealand Firms over the period 2003-2010. The change in assets revaluation reserve and the change in fair value of available-for-sale securities are associated with firm performance as summarized by stock price and returns. We also find a stronger association of aggregate comprehensive income with stock price and market returns compared to net income.
