Investors as shareholders can use the stock return rate as a benchmark to see expectations of a stock at a certain time and prospects of the company in the next period and in the future. This study was conducted to examine the effect of variable Working Capital to Total Assets (WCTA), Debt to Equity Ratio (DER), Total Assets Turnover (TAT) and Net Profit Margin (NPM) on stock returns, either partially or simultaneously on transportation service sector companies listed in Indonesia Stock Exchange in 2011-2013.
