- Retail Banks 

Bank of America 

Wachovia

 

- Internet Banks

E*Trade

ING 

 

 

4. Each group member should research the following information about their company and put the data and links to data sources on the Homework 7 wiki page under their name. Use the most recent data sources you can find. If you are having problems ask for help via the Group Project section of the Forum.

  1. How much revenue does the business generate overall? How much is via the internet?
    1. Look in annual reports or financial information sites such as Google Finance if your company is publicly traded
    2. Note that this will be easier for "pure" internet businesses e.g. for banking, information on internet revenue for E*Trade Bank will be easier to find than internet revenue on Citibank. If your business does not split out revenue via the internet (e.g. a retail bank), list the ways in which using the internet generates revenue for the business. If the business is not publicly traded or does not list its internet-related revenue separately, search for estimates of its revenue in the news media
    3. Try a Google search of "XYZ revenue" or "XYZ revenue estimates"
  2. How profitable is the business?
    1. Use the same research methods as above, but if there is no public report search for "XYZ profitability" or "XYZ profit estimates" instead. Use your initiative to try other searches if these don't work.

 

5.       Have each group member search for industry analyses:

1.       Search for "Impact of the internet on the XYZ industry", "XYZ industry association", "XYZ industry internet" e.g. "impact of internet on the banking industry", "gambling industry association", "movie industry internet"

2.       Each group member should put links to three data sources they find under their names and write one or two sentences explaining the information and the key ideas contained in the reference. Ensure that each group member links to different sources. That is, if someone has found a source already, you need to find a different one.

 

6.   Nominate one person to go to Google Docs and create a one page presentation with your group topic on the title page. Have that person "share" the document with the other group members and the instructor (please use my gmail address rdseabrook@gmail.com). Each group member should put their own name on the presentation title page to show they've edited it successfully. (Google Docs is a collaborative document tool, where multiple people can work together online on the same document. You'll use this for your group presentations).
