Here are some library databases and websites you can use to find financial ratios for companies and industries.
Library Resources (library password required if you are off campus):
- RMA e-Statement Studies: Look up an industry by keyword (example: shoes) or by NAICS (example: 448210 Shoe Stores). More info on the RMA website.
- First Research Industry Profiles (via the ABI/Inform database): search for an industry (example: computers) and click on the Full-Text PDF to open a report. Scroll to the end of the report for the ratios.
- Lexis Nexis: Search for a company using its stock symbol or name. In the Financials section, click on the source link and scroll down for ratios.
- Mergent Online: Search for a company using its stock symbol or name. Click on the Company Financials tab and choose Ratios.
- S&P's NetAdvantage: Click on an industry report. Links to the ratios are at the top of the report.
- Bizstats.com: Browse through lists of industries. Does not include ratios for the most recent years.
- Yahoo Finance: Find a company using its stock symbol or name. Includes a small number of ratios for industries.
For more information about financial ratios, see
- Books about financial ratios: You can read e-books online via the Library. For a print book, write down its call number so you can locate it in our building.
