Abstract: The current research examined the relationship and relative importance of financial regressors on Peruvian gold mining companies¡ä stock prices from 2009 to 2018. Chosen regressors were earnings per share, dividend per share and dividend yield. Fixed effects analysis was employed for regression analysis and R^2 decomposition for the relative importance study. Assumptions of stationarity, independence, no-multicollinearity, homoscedasticity and specification were fulfilled. Also, the values of Owen and Shapley were employed for decomposing R^2. It was found that earnings per share and dividend per share had a positive effect on the dependent variable; while dividend yield was found to be negatively related to stock price. Moreover, by the usage of R^2 decomposition it was noticed that the order of regressors importance was earnings per share, dividend per share and dividend yield. Then, it was stated that gold mining stock prices had a high dependence on profits and dividend payments in the analyzed period which can be related to the bearer¡¯s expectations.
