Focusing on core   Strategic alternatives for ratings company
McGraw Hill said it was looking at "strategic alternatives" for J.D. Power, which is expected to generate revenue of nearly $350 million in 2016.

J.D. Power gets a majority of its business from the automotive sector. It is a part of McGraw Hill's commodities and commercial markets business, which also includes the energy and metals data company Platts.

Westlake Village, California-based J.D. Power could be more valuable to a market research or consumer analytics company, McGraw Hill said.

McGraw Hill with brands like S&P Capital IQ, S&P Dow Jones Indices and CRISIL has in recent years divested some of its other non-core business units.
