The Cost of Capital, Corporation Finance and the of Investmient

...THE COST OF CAPITAL, CORPORATION FINANCE AND THE OF INVESTMIENT In the business world we make investment for two main reasons or either of them that can be for the maximization of our profite from a business or it can be for the maximaization of the market value of the assets. Businesses generally aquire the assets if the perceives that the particular asset can help in increasing the profit of the organisation. According to the theory the acquisition of the asset can help to increase the profit only if the returns arising due to that asset are more than the interest costs arising due to that asset. On the individual level when we are cosidering the purchase of any asset we should also consider the risk factor associated with that asset. Profit maximization and value maximization they both have more or less same meanings and implications. But if the case is of uncertainity then the profit maximization has no meanings, it remains meaningless for the investors. When the situation is uncertain then in that case the market value maximization becomes the basis for the theory of investment, if this notion is kept in mind then every time when we are going to make a decision to invest or not we should simply keep one thing in our mind that can be the basis of the decision, that is if we aquire the particular asset will it help to increase the value of the firm’s share? If in response of this question we comes on this point that yes it will result in increase in the value of the......

Balance of Payment, Current Account, Capital Account

...transactions include payments for the country's exports and imports of goods, services, financial capital, and financial transfers. Current account:The difference between a nation’s savings and its investment. The current account is an important indicator about an economy's health. It is defined as the sum of the balance of trade, net income from abroad and net current transfers. A positive current account balance indicates that the nation is a net lender to the rest of the world, while a negative current account balance indicates that it is a net borrower from the rest of the world. A current account surplus increases a nation’s net foreign assets by the amount of the surplus, and a current account deficit decreases it by that amount. The current account and the capital account are the two main components of a nation’s balance of payments. Capital account:In macroeconomics and international finance, the capital account is one of two primary components of the balance of payments, the other being the current account. Whereas the current account reflects a nation's net income, the capital account reflects net change in ownership of national assets. A surplus in the capital account means money is flowing into the country, but unlike a surplus in the current account, the inbound flows effectively represent borrowings or sales of assets rather than payment for work. A deficit in the capital account means money is flowing out of the country, and it suggests the nation is......

Balances on deposit in banks which are subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash. Money market funds that provide checking account privileges may be classified as cash. There is some question as to whether deposits not subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash or whether they should be set out separately. Savings accounts, time certificates of deposit, and time deposits fall in this latter category. Unless restrictions on these kinds of deposits are such that they cannot be converted (withdrawn) within one year or the operating cycle of the entity, whichever is longer, they are properly classified as current assets. At the same time, they may well be presented separately from other cash and the restrictions as to convertibility reported. 2. (A) Cash (h) Investments, possibly other assets. (b) Trading securities.

...INTRODUCTION The 1980s is known as the deregulation period for the banking industry and subsequently the increased competition of the 1980s and continuing in the 1990s. The themes of the 1980s and 1990s include total quality management, customer satisfaction, cost, quality and time, technology, market globalization, availability of capital and markets, and finally activity based costing. The purpose of this study is to summarize and analyze the implementation of ABC in the banking industry. Total quality management (TQM) is a process of continuous improvement that focuses on increasing customer satisfaction. TQM is founded on the principle that every customer (internal or external) has a set of spoken or latent needs or requirements. The ultimate objective of TQM is to improve the horizontal linkage of operations to produce a product or service. ABC is a fundamental factor in implementing TQM. The implementation of TQM is greatly facilitated by analyzing organizational activities, linking activities to business processes, evaluating cost of quality (prevention, appraisal, and failure), and determining customer perception of value (valueadded activities). A value-added activity is required to meet customer requirements, modifies or enhances raw materials, is a critical step in getting the product or service to the customer, and adds value that customer might be willing to pay for. If the activity is determined to be a non-valueadded activity, one of four things should......

Finance Capital Budgeting Memo

...| Finance 390 | Memo To: | Bob Saunders and Maria Gonzalez | From: | Kelly Moeller | cc: | Antar Salim | Date: | April 13, 2015 | Re: | Capital Budgeting | | | After reviewing your case, it appears that you are trying to determine whether Project A or Project B would be more feasible. Project A has an investment of about $2,000,000 on plant, equipment and supplies. During the first year of operations, the sales and cash flows will be low because you plan to sell the product at a cheap price. However, once you have established your product, you plan to raise the price of the chips. Project B is different because you are planning to sell your innovated chips to an established chip maker. The investment for this project is estimated at $2,000,000, but taking into account the sale of the patent for $200,000, the net investment will be $1,800,000. You are planning on a sizable profit the first year, but thereafter, the advancing technology will decrease the demand and decrease the profits. With the help of capital budgeting techniques, I am confident that we can help you decide which project would be the most beneficial over the five years. It appears that you plan to use a required rate of return of 15% for both projects and would ideally like to see a payback period of less than 3.5 years and a discounted payback period of less than 4 years. Capital budgeting deals with the investments in fixed assets, estimate expenditure, outflows and long term......

Capital Markets Investment and Finance

...sell growth stocks and purchase value stocks; a trading stratagem on average generates 16.6-18.8% abnormal returns prior to transaction costs (Yan, CFA, and Zhao, 2011). Value stocks endure higher distress risk (Fama and French, 1992), systematic inaccuracies projecting strong earnings growth (Shleifer et al., 1997), methodological errors calculating long-term abnormal returns (Kothari, Sabino, Zach (1999), exposure to investor’s disagreement simulating risk (Doukas, Kim, Pantzalis, 2004), tentative information, depicts additional-muted initial returns, thus compensates higher returns. Additionally, extrapolation of good news lowers book-to-market ratio and drives prices higher. However, growth firms invest faster depicting stability in capital expenditure, consisting lower book-to-market ratios, low systematic risk, thus generating lower returns. Initially, Basu (1977) noted positive relationship in US market amid E/P ratios and returns. Fedoora and Vaihekoski (2009) confirm value effect in 6 Eastern-Europe markets. Additionally, Chan et al. (1991) found persuasive presence in Japan. Fama and French (1998) verify a premium of 7.68% per annum of value effect among 12 out of 13 markets over 1975-1995. Claessens et al. (1995) found of value effect in 19 emerging markets. Visegrad countries provide favorable evidence for the presence of value effect (Borys and Zemcik, 2011). China reported higher value returns during 1990-2008. Additionally, sample of 187 organizations......

Account and Finance

...fully describe these words (finance and accounting) as both have very wide meanings and applications in the business world. Most business has an aim to make profit and to remain solvent and the above two concepts play an important role in achieving this objective. This paper aims to answer the above questions and further goes on to say why both should and are considered a vital part of business and their importance in the whole business set up. Literature Review Accounting has been defined as the soul of the business (Collin P, 2004).
