Purpose: In this pitch research letter (PRL), the authors reflect on their research journey in replicating Levi, Li and Zhang (2014) for the AFAANZ Finance SIG 2020 Shark Tank Pitch event. Design/methodology/approach: The authors outline their experience in using the pitch template and discuss some issues and considerations one might encounter when replicating a study using Australian data. Findings: They found the pitch template useful for planning our replication and for developing a thorough understanding of the different aspects involved in completing the project (such as data and methodology considerations as well as motivation and contribution to existing knowledge). Originality/value: This PRL highlights the benefits of replicating an existing study using Australian data, and outlines some potential challenges (and solutions) one may encounter along the way. This experience is expected to be useful to early career researchers and those beginning to work with Australian data.
