It is the extent to which model explains the data. It should be over 30%, here it is 76%, which means that 76% movement in Sector (NMX2790) is due to FTAS.

Significance of Coefficients

Under the Null Hypothesis each coefficient is 0. Here two Coefficients have p value less than 0.05, so Null Hypothesis is rejected for those two coefficients. It means the coefficient of FTAS Weekly Return (beta) and the Intercept (alpha) are significant while the other coefficients are not different from 0.
