Business Research Report
Business Research Report (1000 words or five pages plus a bibliography)
Choose an industry or trade area that interests you. Focus on a single aspect of that industry. For example, you might be interested in the retail industry. In the last 5 years foreign companies have entered the Australian clothing market. Stores such as Zara and TopShop have sprung up around major cities to challenge local companies.
You should choose two local (Australian) or one local and one foreign company and show how they respond to industry challenges. Since this is an investor report, you should concentrate on the local company. You may use a foreign company for comparison only. You will need to evaluate which local company has a successful plan and is meeting the challenges. Your job is to decide for your investment reader what are the positive aspects and how to assess the negatives.
