The competitor information should be a result of your information gathering, you have to gather all the relevant information sorrounding the company you have selected and the competitor as well.
By gathering that information you will be able to see what the companies do differently and whats relevant to your study.

With the five forces you have to analyse the below

-Supplier power
-Threats of substitute
-Threats of new entry
-Buyer power
-Degree of rivary

These days we are blessed with technology so all the information you require to conduct your study is readily available. depending on the companies you are dealing with even the audited annual statements will give you most of the information.
