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.
