A consideration of firm size effect on price ratio fluctuations to earning per share and market returns using integration nonlinear panel data models
Abstract. The present study aimed to determine the effect of firm size on price ratio fluctuations to earning per share and market returns based on co integration nonlinear panel data model. The method it was descriptive and applied considering in panel data analysis. In this study, financial data of 109 companies listed in Tehran Stock Exchange were checked through 2008 to 2013. To analyse the obtained results, Minitab 16, Eviews 7 and Spss 20 soft ware are used. The first hypothesis result showed that there was a significant relationship between the effect of firm size on price ratio fluctuations to earnings per share and market returns based on co integration nonlinear panel data model. Finally considering second hypothesis, analysis we concluded that there was a significant and reverse relationship between estimating the volatility of firm size and volatility of market returns resulting from stock price of firms based on co integration nonlinear panel data model.
