To achieve this purpose, (17) financial ratios from (35) listed companies were tested using the available data for period 2009-2013. These ratios were analyzed using multiple regression to find the best model for each sector of (PEX). Several financial ratios can be used to predict the stock price in the industry sector, which are (earning per stock, market price on book value, days sales outstanding, fixed assets turnover, return on equity and profit margin). In the investment sector, the following ratios (market price on book value, assets turnover, market price on cash flow and fixed assets turnover) can be used to predict the stock price. Adding to that, the ratios of (earning per stock, market price on book value and return on equity) can predict the stock price of service sector. In the insurance sector, the ratios of (earning per stock, return on assets, debt ratio and assets turnover) can be used in predicting stock price. Finally, the ratios of (market price on book value, earning per stock, return on equity, basic earning power and fixed assets turnover) predicting the banking sector stock price.
