A financial crisis is a situation in which the value of financial institutions or assets drops rapidly, it is often associated with a panic or a run on the banks, in which investors sell off assets or withdraw money from savings accounts with the expectation that the value of those assets will drop if they remain at a financial institution. ("Financial Crisis", 2010)

Nearly all firms are suffered during the period such as that of subprime crisis during 2008, however, industries might be effect differently during the same time. The aim of this report is to find out the effect of financial crisis to the stock price of different industries as stock price can directly reflect the overall performance of a business.

The brief research method is to comparing with the relevant and correlations of the stock price of some of the sample industries with that of Dow Jones Indexes during 2008. If a result come up with the trend of regression analyzes different among these industries samples as the line chart with different slope of regression, the hypothesis can be identified.
