The primary source contained a direct account of the event to phenomena such accounts are obtained from observation, interviews, and questionnaire source at the various locations of the data.  The data are made up of information that was generated specifically for this study so as to gain our insight into the research topic and confer as much authenticity as possible to this task.

The secondary data were in existence before the need to conduct this research topic. The sources of data collected under this category include Newspapers and magazines, Journals, textbooks.  This collection helped to reveal the transaction or relationship of the financial market and investors.

From the response gotten from the sampled frame in the questionnaires, one will clearly see that both companies are a million miles away from the risk-seeking class of investors.  Some of the investors prefer the risk aversion class while others prefer the risk neutralizing classing.  But from the Hypotheses test, it could be inferred that there is no significant relationship between the risk class, an investor belongs and the profitability return on investment,

The study also revealed that the company has been able to turn up to the expectation of the people.

The financial market is that market where companies or firms raises needed funds for their on-going operations as well as for long term capital expenditures.
