Industry

The company's primary area of business.

This field provides an easy way to search for stocks within a certain area of business.

When making comparisons among stocks, it can be helpful to compare companies within the same area of business. At Morningstar, we also provide percentile rankings within the company's industry for data such as net margin, revenue growth, earnings growth, and total return. The information is gathered from the description-of business section of the company's 10-K form. The company is then coded using the North American Industrial Classification System. More information about the NAICS is available by calling 1-800-553-6847 to purchase a technical manual, visiting the Internet site at www.census.gov/naics, or calling an industry classification expert at 1-888-75NAICS.
