Abstract : Financed Analysis of Defense Industry firms, as conducted within DoD, typically involves the analysis of financial condition as measured by financial ratios. The objective of this study was to identify the basic dimensions of financial condition in the defense industry and the specific financial ratios that best reflect those dimensions. An empirical analysis of 5i financial ratios for 50 defense firms over a 10 year period was conducted. Findings indicate there are eight basic dimensions of financial condition and that those dimensions are stable across varying circumstances.
