Assignment Requirements:
The assignment should cover the structure and contents described below.
A Brief introduction of your group’s work: the purpose of assignment, key findings and structure of
the assignment (not more than 300 words)
Part 1. Research and Fact finding of Australian Financial Products
Visit the website of Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) to find information about at least ten financial
products that are publicly traded on the market and fill in the below table:
Name and
nature of the
What is the income from investment in
this product
What are the risks involved in the
investment in this product
Your answers can include the information gathered from fact finding completed in the ASX website
and research about financial markets and financial products.
Part 2. Fact finding of Investment Analysis Tools in Australia
You are required to go to Online Portal of ASX, read the materials of two education courses offered
by ASX about fundamental analysis and technical analysis and answer the following questions:
2.1. Fundamental Analysis
a. What is fundamental analysis?
b. What are you trying to learn about a company with fundamental analysis?
c. What kind of information from a company’s annual reports is useful for your investment?
d. Why dividend per share and dividend yield can be useful for investors to appraise financial
condition of a company given the limitations of financial ratio analysis?
2.2. Technical Analysis
a. What is technical analysis?
b. What are the three types of charts applying for Technical Assistance?
c. What are uptrend, down trend and how to recognize a change of trend?
d. What are the resistance and support lines?

Note that this is fact finding question and all the information need to be taken from the provided
source (ASX website). Penalty is applied for secondary data (literature review, research or article
done by someone else). However, note that you need to read the course material to get
information and use your own wordings to rephrase it, then make a proper intext citation and
references to the ASX sources. High similarity index showing the source of ASX with proper
references is FINE but copy and paste the content of the courses is plagiarism.

equipment that will generate the same revenue for the company each year. The table below shows
the initial and annual costs for each option.

for an average price of $15 per unit. The Equipment in Option B has a residual value of $300 000 at
the end of the project. The company will need to add $ 750 000 in working capital which is expected
to be fully retrieved at the end of the project. Other information is available below:
Depreciation method: straight line
