Conclusion Contacts 4 6 9 14 18 20 23 3 Executive summary The global economy is reeling with the impact of the ongoing recession which started with the sub-prime crisis in the United States and found its way to other developed and emerging economies of the world. This recession has its roots in the initial collapse of the financial sector. However, in a world that is more integrated within each country as well as across nations, the events in the financial sector have eventually trickled down to the real sector of the economies as well. Finance and financial markets play a dominant role in growth and development of modern economies – hence, any recovery from the current recession must be couched in an overall recovery of the health and performance of the financial sector. In the absence of mature financial markets in their own economies,...

The forecasts were reviewed downward by 0.3% The IMF forecasts a global economic growth of 3.5% and 3.7% for 2015 and 2016 respectively. relative to the October 2014 WEO. The revisions reflect a reassessment of prospects in China, Russia, the Euro-area, and Japan as well as the weaker activity in some major oil exporters because of the sharp drop in oil prices. The United States (U.S.) is the only major economy for which growth projections have been raised upward. The IMF added that the global growth will receive a boost from the lower oil prices. However, this boost is projected to be more than offset by the negative factors, including investment weakness as adjustment to diminished expectations about medium-term growth continues in many advanced and emerging market economies. The U.S. is expected to grow by 3.6% in 2015 and slow down to 3.3% in 2016, supported by domestic demand due to lower oil prices, more moderate fiscal adjustment, and The U.S. is expected to grow by 3.6% in 2015 and slow down to 3.3% in 2016. continued support from an accommodative monetary policy stance...

Industry Analysis

...THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY ANALYSIS On top of almost every economy usually stands the Manufacturing industry and has always been the source of growth of most economy. However, for Jamaica this sector's has been impeded by a number of factors including crime, high energy costs, reduced access to affordable raw materials and thereby resulted in a decline in the industry. THE FOUNDATION Jamaica possesses a highly diversified manufacturing industry whose development has been based on continuous investment from other countries, which has produced high-quality products and dominated the country’s export over the last 50 years. A primary force behind the increase in the manufacturing industry resulted from the shortage of goods after World War 11, therefore a lot of the international goods were produced locally. In its early stages of development of the manufacturing industry was overwhelmed with opportunities. With the support of Government, an entrepreneurial class, a local market that could facilitate over 1 million individuals, and labour in abundance, the manufacturing industry was unstoppable.

Identify the Industry—Analysis of Financial Statement Data

...A01-14-0012 Graeme Rankine Identify the Industry—Analysis of Financial Statement Data Since companies in the same industry face similar opportunities and constraints, they tend to make similar invest- ment, dividend, and financing decisions. Thus, the financial characteristics of firms in the same industry tend to cluster together. For example, old economy businesses with large amounts of tangible assets may have higher leverage ratios because such assets provide good collateral for lenders. Service or trading firms may have large amounts of intangible assets such as knowledge assets or a large and loyal customer base, and, hence, have low leverage ratios because growth options can devalue quickly. On the other hand, companies in different industries tend to exhibit different financial characteristics, as measured by financial ratios, because of cross-sectional dif- ferences in operating and financing decisions. With some knowledge of the different operating, investing, and financing decisions across industries, financial ratios may be used to identify an industry (see Exhibit 1 for the definition of ratios used). Common-sized balance sheets (all items scaled by total assets), common-sized income statements (all items scaled by net sales), and selected financial ratios for the nine companies are provided. Since unusual deviation from target values may occur in any given year, the values for the items were averaged over three years. The three- year average......
