The cement industry is the Turkey's most important sector of the construction industry and this study is about the companies that provide input to the cement industry. VIKOR (Vise Kriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno Resenje) method has been developed for the solution of decision making problems which cannot be measured in same units or having controversial criteria. In this method criteria are appraised together and alternatives generates optimum solution from the closest feasible solutions or using for ranking alternatives based on their performance. In the study financial indicators of cement companies in 2011 were used as criteria. To be objective the weights of the criteria used in this study were asked to people who are expert about the market. As a result, financial performance of the companies which traded on the ISE by the cement industry are ranked with the VIKOR method. The spearman correlation coefficient were used for investigating relationships between obtained rankings and stock returns of these companies.
