The results of multiple linear regression analysis with independent variables, namely stock prices and the dependent variable, namely EPS, NPM and ROA, show that EPS (X1) has a positive effect on stock prices (Y). while NPM (X2) and ROA (X3) do not affect stock prices (Y). Based on the results of the determination coefficient table, the adjusted R2 value is 0.828. This means that the influence given by the independent variable to the dependent variable partially or simultaneously is 82.8%.
