I am doing this research in order to identify my investment choice, view its benefits and disadvantages, its future potential and estimated trend, as well as the reasons for my decision.
There are six businesses in the town: a travel agent, a newsagent, a wine bar, a nail bar, a food store and a sports shop. The wine bar makes the highest profits in all the years combined, with 494,000 pounds while the nail bar makes the least profits overall, with 242,000 pounds.

In 2009 it made a total profit of 65,000 pounds, while its closest competitor was, for a third successive year, the Food Store, which made an overall profit of 68,000 pounds. In 2010 the Nail Store made a total...
