Right, that makes totally sense. Accordingly. I would regress each firm characteristic (leverage, profitability) separately. Is this correct?

Thanks for this.

No, the rating and the outlook are both explanatory/
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,
