Corporate governance is one of the most important issues to which has been paid attention by big companies due to the massive financial scandals of recent years. Corporate governance includes supervising the company management, separating the economic units from its ownership and protecting investors’ and benefiters’ rights. The research goal is to assess the relation between some corporate governance mechanisms and stock profitability. The research independent variables are: institutional ownership, ownership concentration and board size. The stock return is dependent variable. The research statistical society includes all investors who have visited Tehran stock exchange to buy and sell shares in 2012. The sampling is done randomly. The data collection is done using field and library methods by distributing questionnaires among 130 stock investors. Finally, according to the collected data, the research hypotheses are assessed and analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics. The SPSS software is used to analyze the collected data.
