Syed Zagham Abbas, Syed Amad Nadeem

Abstract


Different internal factors that affect the competitive position of export-oriented firms in Pakistan have been investigated in this paper. The sample is based on firms which are involved in the textile trade and are listed on Pakistan Stock Exchange. Results of empirical analysis show that return on assets has negative relation with leverage. Similarly, the results of our empirical analysis show that size has a negative relation with ROE. Liquidity has a positive relation with ROA, whereas growth and exports do not have any observable effect on competitive position of a firm.
