For this purpose, operating profit variables, net profit and the ratio of debit to stockholders’ equity has been taken into consideration as independent variables and stock return as a dependent variable. Data were collected from Tehran Stock Exchange by accessible information. Statistical population of the study contains listed companies on Tehran Stock Exchange for the period of 2006 to 2010. The results indicate the correlation ratio of net profit and partial correlation of operational profit in relation to stock return and indicate unrelated quotient of debit to stockholder’s equity in relation to dependent variable.
