  •  Farouq Altahtamouni    


This study aimed to find the best model to predict the market value of the Jordanian banks for the period from 2004 to 2013. Based on previous studies we have used investment, financing and dividend decisions in addition to profitability, size and growth to predict the market value which has been measured at market value of the shares to the book value, which is called by Tobin’s Q.

By using the simple regression analysis it was reached to a statistical significance effect for each investment decision, profitability, size and expected growth on market value, and it was found out the absence of an effect for each of financing and dividends decisions on market value. And by Using multiple linear regression test and stepwise regression method in order to find out the best models to predict market value, the profitability, investment decision and expected growth are considered the best variables to predict market value whereas it explain 45% of changes in market value.
