In contrast, we generate investors' expectations by taking stock prices, the book value of equity, and analyst earnings projections into consideration. The research was conducted in Erbil's SME. The researchers used a quantitative approach to evaluate the impact of Accounting-based will have significant influence on expected returns in SME in Kurdistan region of Iraq. The present thesis was analyzed using a questionnaire.

The research sample was chosen using a random sampling method and carried out in various locations in Kurdistan region of Iraq. A total of 175 questionnaires were issued, but only 162 participants completed them correctly.

We argue that by definition, the standard for measuring a cross-section of future returns will provide statistical" proxies" that on average estimate future market returns across different asset classes.
