Why are so many stocks in your database classified as "N/A" in regard to their sector and industry? The reason this concerns me is that many companies (ie. Nokia and Oasis Petroleum are just two examples) are unclassified and wouldn't show up in a filter that searched for stocks in a top performing sector or industry. I should think companies like Nokia and Oasis Petroleum should be fairly easy to classify. Does anyone know the answer to this?

Good question! I found the difference between the StockFetcher and FinViz classifications to be so large (FinViz is much more complete) that I don't use SF for any industry scans.
