Directions: Please answer each of the following questions in complete sentences.  Your submitted paper should be three APA formatted pages.  Be sure to reference your textbook to indicate your sources.

 

1.      The Fortune 500 firms are very large and many of them have significant product diversification.  Do you believe these large firms are overdiversified?  Do they experience lower performance than they should?  Explain your opinion and rationale and cite at least two sources.

 

2.      Use the Internet to read about acquisitions that are currently underway and choose one of these acquisitions.  Based on the firms’ characteristics, experiences, and the reasons cited to support the acquisition, do you feel it will result in increased strategic competitiveness for the acquiring firm?  Why or why not?  Is this transaction between domestic companies or is this a cross-border acquisition?  What accounts for the nature of what you found?  Be sure to cite at least two references that you identify as case studies or scholarly sources.
