FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF STEEL INDUSTRY BY MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS
Languages of publication
Presented paper deals with the implementation of multidimensional statistical methods used to compare the financial health of selected global steel producers. We show the evolution of the steel industry in years 2003 – 2007 using factor analysis, multidimensional scaling and cluster analysis. Results of implemented multidimensional statistical methods are transparently and clearly presented with simple two-dimensional graphical output. The methodology for implementation of various analyses allows us to give satisfactory answers to many questions related to the identification of financial health, but also a business failure or bankruptcy prediction. The above method can be also used for the other industries based on available data.
