Q. How do I find the industry average ratios, sales, etc?

I'm specifically researching SIC 3484 - small arms.

Answer

Yahoo! Finance has quite a bit of information about RGR and is often recommended as a source to find industry average ratios.

There’s an industry search option in Yahoo!, but when I searched for RGR it brought back information about Aerospace/Defense Products & Services – not just small arms.

You may want to try looking at MarketWatch or Nasdaq.

I created an interesting report in Mergent that you might find helpful.
1. In Mergent, look up RGR
2. Click on the Report Builder tab
3. Click on the Comparison Reports submenu
4. Click on Peer Group Selection: SIC, Scope: Worldwide
5. Choose the number of companies that you want to compare
6. Under Report Type, leave it set to “List By Item”
7. Report Item Selection: choose which Ratios you want to look at. Add them to the report by highlighting a ratio and then clicking the single arrow point right.
8. In the bottom right hand corner, select your format (I like PDF, but you may want to go with Excel)
9. Click Create Report
