Data used have been collected from annual reports of the sample companies and website of Pakistan Stock Exchange from 2012 to 2016. The results of OLS indicate that there is an insignificant positive relationship between return on equity (ROE) and Dividend per share (D.P.S) which imply that by increasing cost dividend per share, return on equity increases for the selected companies. Furthermore, a significant positive relationship between earning per share (EPS) and return-on-equity (R.O.E) was found.
