Suggested headings for your mini project report are given below:

Introduction

Modelling

Build appropriate statistical model(s) to your data. Use your model(s) to discuss the statistical and practical significance of the variables under consideration. It is not necessary that statistical significance must always be revealed, and two financial variables may not be statistically related at all. Present the pros and cons of the model(s) you have built.

List all your conclusions from the analyses. State the limitations as well.

Note that your mini project report may have sections different from what is suggested above. For example, you may like to name the sections appropriate to the problem.
