CVS swot work very well written and quite informative.

I like the introduction and background information as it is short and to the point. Keep in mind who the audience is, CVS, your client. Industry trends discussion is very nice. You mentioned the company strategic objectives, however I see no in text citations concerning the same. The company financial objectives are very interesting, however you should inform your reader what PBM growth strategy is. Your discussion of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats is excellent

You should work on preparing a synthesis of all these working in conjunction with one another as was done in the discussions. There is one very important item that is missing, the 2 x 2 swot matrix.

This is an important component of any swot analysis one of the major items searched when reviewing a swot analysis. It allows the reader the opportunity to review each of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in a simple matrix to see the relationship among one another. I’m surprised you have not included the CVS latest annual report as a reference. I am sure your client will want to know that you have reviewed the latest annual report to understand the management analysis and discussion, which may have information applicable to a swot analysis. Although not perfect, your references look good.
