panel regression analysis interpretation

 Hi all, This is my first time on the listserve, so I apologize if my post isn't done correctly - please let me know. I am running an xtreg regression for a fixed-effects model on panel data. I would like to check whether all the OLS assumptions are ok and don't know which commands to employ to test for what potential problems I could have in my regression. I understand basic output results in terms of the box but don't know which other results correspond to which OLS assumptions. Thanks for your time. See results below: Fixed-effects (within) regression               Number of obs      =     11385 Group variable: cntry_sector   Number of groups   =      1265 R-sq:  within  = 0.0088                         Obs per group: min =         9        between = 0.0422                                        avg =       9.0        overall = 0.0058                                        max =         9                                                 F(18,10102)        =      4.99 corr(u_i, Xb)  = -0.6067                        Prob > F           =    0.0000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------       invest |      Coef.   Std.
