All hypotheses were confirmed except the relationship between ROA and stock return at 95 percent of confidence level..

Findings - The results of regression analysis indicated that the variable of EVA with -0.231 standard coefficient have the most reverse effect on stock return, the residual profit with the coefficient of 0.172 stood at second rank and free cash flows and EVA respectively with standard beta coefficient of 0.129 and 0.114 were graded third and fourth with positive effect on stock return.
