...substantial amounts of money through Balik and Kiefer. DellaTorre is very bright, and she would like to understand in general terms what will happen to her money. Your boss has developed the following set of questions you must answer to explain the U.S. financial system to DellaTorre. a. Why is corporate finance important to all managers?

Without corporate finance, those managers will not be able to assist the company in garnering additional money for the company. b.

...1.0 Introduction Capital markets are a major source of finance for large companies engaging in investment projects. Successful investment projects can bring tremendous returns to shareholders in the form of dividend payment and increased share value. However, the source of finance affects a company’s overall cost of capital and by extension its dividends to shareholders. This report addresses the importance of the capital market and the efficient market hypothesis theories. The various source of finance available to large companies and the related cost. As well as the importance of the dividend decision and its possible affect on the company’s share price. [pic] 2.0 The role and importance of capital markets and efficient market hypothesis (EMH) [pic] The Role and Importance of Capital Markets A capital market is a market for the trading of long term securities such as, but not limited to debt and equity securities. A capital market which includes bond markets and stock exchanges serves two major functions. Firstly, it acts as a primary market for issuing new equity and debt capital. This means that companies[1] who want to raise new financing for investment projects or business expansion can source funding via this market. Secondly, it also acts as a secondary market for trading (that is to say buying and selling) of existing securities. The secondary market also serves as a source of pricing information for the primary market. Capital markets provide......

...Government Spending: Stunting GDP growth. Brendan Sookraj Webster University FINC 5830 Fall I 2013 September 07, 2013 Author Note Certificate of Authorship: This paper was prepared by me for this specific course and is not a result of plagiarism or self-plagiarism. I have cited all sources from which I used data, ideas, or words either quoted or paraphrased. Date : __________________________ Signature: Abstract As dictated in fundamental Macroeconomic theory, there are four main components that are involved in calculating a nation’s GDP: personal consumption, business investment, net exports and government spending. The formula, therefore, Y= C+I+E+G, provides a mathematical framework that shows the relationship of Government spending as it relates to growth in GDP. Unfortunately, the financial atmosphere and economic trends in the last 5 years has suggested that government spending in fact may have no or negative correlation to economic growth in a country. Undoubtedly the concept of Government spending growing an economy can be deemed obsolete. The realities of the fiscal troubles that the world economy has been immersed in for the past six years, stems from the ideals of Keynesian economics which, arguably stifles free enterprise and is restricts the movement of a free market system. The gross domestic product, a robust measurement of the......

...of $50.00, the $2 dividend, and the 15% cost of capital. Execute: 50 = 2+ X 1.15 X = 55.50 Evaluate: At a current price of $50, we can expect Evco stock to sell for $55.50 immediately after the firm pays the dividend in 1 year. 5. Plan: We can rearrange Eq. 7.1 to find the cost of capital given the current stock price of $20, the $1 expected dividend, and the expected stock price right after paying the dividend of $22. We can use Eq. 7.2 to calculate the dividend yield and the capital gain. Execute: rE = Div1 + P1 −1 P0 P − P0 Div1 + 1 = P0 P0   Capital Gain Rate Dividend Yield rE = 1 22 − 20 + 20 20 = 0.15 = 15% © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 82 Berk/DeMarzo/Harford • Fundamentals of Corporate Finance, Second Edition Dividend Yield: 5% (1/20) Capital Gain: 10% (2/20) Evaluate: The cost of capital for Anle Corporation is 15% given the current stock price of $20 and the expected stock price of $22 after paying the dividend of $1 in one year. The cost of capital is then split between the dividend yield at 5% and the capital gains yield at 10%, which together creates the 15% cost of capital. 6. Plan: We can use the constant dividend growth model (Eq. 7.6) with a growth rate of 0 because this preferred stock pays a constant (nongrowing) dividend. Div1 = 3, r = 0.08, g = 0.

All else equal, the Weighted average cost of capital of a firm increases as the beta and rate of return on equity increases, as an increase in Weighted average cost of capital notes a decrease in valuation and a higher risk. The weighted average cost of capital is a mirror of all activities and risks taken on in the company’s businesses. Also, the weighted average cost of capital is not constant over time (Jonathan Berk, 2010, pp. 402-403). Lastly, the weighted average cost of capital depends on the risk free rate, the company’s funding strategy and risk profile. References Jonathan Berk, P. D. (2010). Fundamentals of Corporate Finance.

...Maria Robertson Corporate Finance 08/12/2015 Chapter 1 1) Intrinsic value refers to the value of a stock and currency or product determined through fundamental analysis based on accurate risk and return data without reference to its market value. It is also frequently called fundamental value. Company’s current stock price is based on perceived but possibly incorrect information as seen by the marginal investor, which is the actual market value. The stock’s true long value is more closely related to its intrinsic value. 2) A stock is in equilibrium when the stock’ s actual market price is equal to its intrinsic value. A stock may not be in equilibrium when the marginal investor has perceived and incorrect information when estimating the stock value. 3) The Company’s CFO because if he has lied about the company’s intrinsic value can go to jail as they certify to the SEC that reports released to the stockholders are accurate. 4) Equal to its intrinsic value. No because as stocks holders or CEO ready to retire would be better to the stock price to be over the intrinsic value because they will receive more dividends or bonuses. However the intrinsic value tend to merge with the stock price in the long run. 5) A Fixed dollar amount. It should be measured in the growth in the long run. In the growth rate by profits would be easier. In the stocks intrinsic value would be better because that way managers will avoid to inflate stocks value by overstating profits. ...

...a partnership. Because there can be many partners, a partnership can raise capital more easily than a proprietorship. However, like sole proprietors, partners have unlimited liability for the debts of the firm. In fact, each partner has unlimited liability for all the business’s debts, not just his or her share. Corporate organization has the advantage of limited liability. It also allows for separation of ownership and management, since shares in the firm can be traded without changing management. The corporation also has easier access to capital markets. The major disadvantage of corporate organization is the double taxation of income. Corporations pay taxes on their income, and that income is taxed again when it is passed through to shareholders in the form of dividends. Another disadvantage of corporate organization is the extra time and cost required in order to manage a corporation’s legal affairs. These costs arise because the corporation must be chartered and is considered a distinct legal entity. Such administrative costs are significant only for small corporations, however. 5. Double taxation means that a corporation’s income is taxed first at the corporate tax rate, and then, when the income is distributed to shareholders as dividends, the income is taxed again at the shareholder’s personal tax rate. a, c, d. a. b. c. d. e. f. g. h.
