This study aim of this research is to propose three new distributions for the distribution of stock returns and using those distributions proposed and estimates the parameters of stock returns. This proposed distribution will be dealt with in the area of some statistical properties. Real life data such as cancer and Stock returns will be analyzed against the common distributions to assess differences and similarities in the behavior of the distributions. They will be an exploration of the proposed distributions with a survival and hazard functions distributions on breath cancer and stock market returns and some comparison will be done using the model selection criteria. A simulation study would be used to compare both the stock returns and cumulative function of the simulated data.
