Comparison and Contrasting Financial Ratios

Please submit a 3 page word document in APA format with references comparing and contrasting the company ratios (See table 1.1) to one another and the industry. Make a determination of which company is in a better financial situation as part of your conclusion. Also discuss how each company compares to the industry averages.

See Financial Accounting Week 8 Written Assignment Attachment

I have completed the requested ratios (see table 1.1 in attachment). In addition, I have attached the appendices from which the numbers for the ratios have been obtained from. I am having trouble understanding what company is doing better than the other and how all of this relates Industry Average. From what I can gather, it appears that Urban Outfitters is doing better than American Eagle and the Industry Average. However, I am at a lost for how to word this possible discovery into three pages. I need a great deal of help to answer the questions asked above. The help is greatly appreciated.
