Answer by  ChrisPeterson (18)

Factors to consider include the health of the economy, competition within the industry, the firm's market share, and any competitive advantages (or disadvantages) the firm may have.

Consider the overall state of the economy - is it boom or bust when you're forecasting? Then consider your particular region, again, is your region doing better or worse than the national average? Also consider how well your particular sector (manufacturing, retail, services, etc.) is performing.
