No, the rating and the outlook are both explanatory/
independent/predictor/right-hand-side/x-variables. 
The characteristic (whatever that may be) is your 
explained/dependent/left-hand-side/y-variable. So
the type of regression depends on the type of 
firm characteristic you want to investigate.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
