The study adopted market price per share (MPPS) as proxy for stock price and the dependent variable, while cash flow per share ratio (CFPS), cash flow to total assets ratio (CFTA), and dividend to operating cash flow ratio (DOCF) were adopted as the independent variables. Data on the study variables for the period 2005 – 2014 were collected from the annual reports and accounts of ten commercial banks listed on the NSE. The study employed multiple regression technique based on Windows SPSS 20 version to analysis the data. The findings of the study revealed that CFPS, CFTA and DOCF had positive significant impact on MPPS.
