This study aims to test empirically the effect of the cash flows (the operating cash flow; the investment cash flow; and the financing cash flow), gross profit, and company size towards the Indonesian chemical and basic industry companies’ stock returns. The results showed that in partial the operating cash flow, financing cash flow, gross profit and the size of the company have an effect on stock returns, while the investment cash flow has no effect on stock returns. The results also showed that the cash flows, gross profit and the size of the company have an effect on stock returns simultaneously.
