The remarkable progress of information technology had driven every firm to publish their financial performance by using internet. This circumstance resulted in the high public attention in order to generate the stock return. In addition, financial information such as financial ratio namely DER, LEV, NPM, ROI, and ROE were supposed to influence the firm’s performance either in positive or negative effects. This study focused on the investigation of public attention (PA) and financial information as determinants of financial performance on four companies in Telecommunication sector, Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), within time period from 2007 to 2012. Hereby, we pointed out that public attention and financial information considerably contribute to firm performance, in which the Pooled Least Square (EGLS) with cross section and period weight was employed. The results showed that Public Attention (PA) positively contributed towards stock return. Further, financial ratio such as debt-to-equity ratio (DER) negatively influenced the return. Leverage (LEV), net profit margin (NPM) and return on investment (ROI) positively related to return. However, return on equity (ROE) showed the contrary sign, in which it negatively influenced the return but was statistically insignificant. Then, we reported that the stock price (LNSP) did not significantly contribute towards return (RET).
Keywords: public attention, financial information, financial ratios, firm performance, return.

The objective of investors to invest their money in the stock exchange was to maximize return although they were subject to constraints, primarily risk. Return was the motivating force in the investment process. It was the reward for undertaking the investment. To overcome and lesson the risk, an investor needed to make diversification through the formation of portfolio. The aim of this research was to know the return and risk from the active and passive strategy in the stocks of LQ45, for 6 months periods, August 2009 until January 2010. The active strategy used the single index model and passive used the LQ45 share itself. The results of this research indicated that active strategy (single index model): return portfolio was 5.43% and risk was 4.03%. Passive strategy (following the index): return portfolio was 2% and risk was 3.5% and there was a linear relationship between an asset’s risk and its required rate of return, the bigger the amount of return, the bigger the risk taken by investors or the reverse. The finding showed that between the two strategies, the return and risk of active strategy as a whole was bigger than that of the passive strategy.
