This study has used the model of Volunteeno (2000). The objective of this study is to analyse the impact of the cash flow news and discount rate news on stock returns of energy firms of Pakistan from 2000 to 2015.

The results of this research show that only discount rate news is significance and positively related with unexpected stock return returns of energy firms which describe that increase in variability in the discount rate news increase the variability in unexpected stock returns. As cash flow news is insignificance which conclude that there is no permanent effect occur in the unexpected stock return due to change in book value and earning.
