In this study, the samples were selected by using purposive samplingmethod of manufacturing companies in LQ45. In testing the hypothesis, the researcher usesmultiple linear regressions. In some cases, the results do not support previous studies. GoingConcern Opinion and Net Income do not affect the Market Value of Equity. Thus, it does notsupport the previous research findings.
