The population consists of manufacturing firms registered at Tehran Stock Exchange and the statistical sample includes 126 companies. To explore the assumptions of the research, secondary data, as well as audited balance sheets have been used to collect the data. The data have been analyzed using descriptive and inferential methods at two levels and via Panel Yapold tests.

The results coming out of the study have been obtained by financial and monetary data of the companies registered at Tehran Stock Exchange during the years between 2010 and 2014 and have been analyzed.
