1. Cost of materials is determined most by New Capital Expenditures followed by Number of Employees. Overall a low R^2 value indicates nothing is a strong predictor of the cost of materials.
2. Dividend per share is the greatest indicator of average P/E ratio followed by average yield and earnings per share which each have a negative correlation. in general this is a very weak model with an R^2 of 0.18.
3. This model is very strong compared to the previous ones, however, no one independent variable takes a strong lead in predicting the outcome of NIKKIE.
4. This is a very strong model with Houshold income being the major predicting variable for food spending. My model indicated a R^2 of 1 and 0 coefficient for each variable. I don’t think this is possible though my methods were correct.
