The management team tries to achieve the budgeted profit target each period to maximize the value of the company as reflected in the stock price. In general, management runs its operations by way of earnings management practices at every level of management to pursue the budgeted profit targets of the company. Earnings management which is a tool to maintain profitability can give a signal of stock prices in the capital market.

The results of this study indicate that earnings management directly does not have a significant effect on stock prices. And indirectly earnings management through Good Corporate Governance in the proxy of independent commissioners has no significant effect, but through the audit committee has a significant effect on stock prices. And through independent commissioners and audit committees have no significant effect on stock prices. Good Corporate Governance practices carried out by Independent Commissioners and Audit Committees can establish effective supervision and control systems within an entity.
