Horizontal analysis can be assessed on a singlecompany over a period of time, comparing the same items or ratios, or it can be performed on multiplecompanies in the same industry to assess a company's performance relative to competitors.Vertical analysis is a method of analyzing financial statements in which each item in thestatement is represented as a percentage of a single larger item.
