Stock returns are calculated based on changes in closing stock prices and estimated influence of financial performance factors using the panel data regression method. Based on empirical findings show that financial performance that has been proxy using; CR, TAT, ROA, and DER do not affect stock returns. The results of the study have implications that the company's financial performance is not an important consideration for investors in the decision to buy shares in the Machinery and Heavy Equipment sub-sector company.
