Abstract

The price of stock like any other commodity goes up and down due to a number of factors. Corporate governance is one of important determinants of stock price. This paper makes an attempt to study exclusively the relationship between corporate governance score and stock prices of a company. The research involves a study of the KSE - 30 index companies. The independent variable (Corporate governance score) and dependent variable (company’s share price) have identified for the two years 2009 and 2010. In the analysis our hypothesis corporate governance score and stock prices is significant. Hence, this study concludes that better governed firms have higher stock prices and vice versa. This is due to the fact that better managed firms will perform better and as result stock prices will increase.
