Finance -- Industry Ratios: THE ASSIGNMENT

This guide is intended to help students find industry ratios for Finance assignments (ACC330, BUS230, FIN322, etc.)



You must find financial ratios for an INDUSTRY of interest.

BEFORE finding INDUSTRY ratios, you should have already researched a COMPANY of interest, e.g. Kraft Foods, and already have obtained ratios for your COMPANY of interest. 

In order to search for INDUSTRY ratios, you will need Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) and North American Industry Classification (NAICS) codes which most closely match industries associated with your company.
