  • The analysis of the factor models is interesting in its own right. Surpris- ingly,much of the literature on international stock return comovement imposes strong restrictions of constant, unit betas with respect to a large number of country and industry factors, as in the Heston and Rouwenhorst (1994) model. We contrast the predictions of these models for stock return comovements with our risk-based models.

  • Due to a variety of factors, more and more companies are being forced to continuously cut costs, boost productivity, and struggle for success. Although their mandate might be to im- prove sales, the resources available to do this are being cut. For companies in this situation, the telephone can become a useful tool. For individuals, a career as a telemarketer can be long- lasting and highly lucrative, especially once you perfect your skills, gain experience, and develop a track record.

  • Since 2005, the international development perspectives have broadened, with new funding sources, partnerships and configurations of stakeholders.

  • Campaign Execution (Model Deployment): Once the model is ready, the next step is to deploy the model in the current campaign. The model is applied to rank all potential customers by the predicted probability of belonging to the class initiating the contact. Only the top x% of the ranked list will receive the promotion (if the majority of potential customers are contacted, then direct marketing would not differ much from mass marketing). The selection of an optimal x, i.e. the x that produces the highest net profit, depends on the (predicted) performance of the model.

  • If we weight market capitalizations and net earnings for the three S&P categories and then take the ratio, we have a price-earnings ratio of 19.3 Aggregate earnings and this priceearnings ratio imply an estimate for the aggregate market capitalization of 1.67 times GNP, which is close to that for industrials only. We should note that an estimate of 19 for the price-earnings ratio is significantly higher than that reported by Fisher, who cites the Standard Statistics Company as the source for his data.

  • Communities in crisis suffer a loss of access to services, which UNFPA works to restore or to provide in temporary locations. While access is most obviously a problem for refugees and the internally displaced, people in surrounding communities and other family members may also be affected by the crisis.

  • Despite the expertise and ingenuity of U.S. industry and tremendous productiv- ity of U.S. agriculture and forestry, plant-based sources cannot automatically shoulder a major share of our chemical feedstock demand. Today, U.S. industry only makes minor portions of some classes of chemical products from plant-derived materials. Important scientific and commercial development breakthroughs are needed. Petrochemicals, agriculture, forestry, and other industries—as well as government—must make major coordinated efforts to most effectively increase the use of plant-derived chemicals.

  • Because an interest rate swap is just a series of cash flows occurring at known future dates, it can be valued by sim ply summing the present value of each of these cash flows. In order to calculate the present value of each cash flow, it is necessary to first estimate the correct discount factor (df) for each period (t) on which a cash flow occurs. Dis count factors are derived from investors’ perceptions of in terest rates in the future and are calculated using forward rates such as LIBOR. The following formula calculates a theoretical rate (known as the “Swap Rate”) for...

Yet there are also areas of shared vision. Most important, all agree that the demand for reliable financial services is huge. We estimate that roughly 40 to 80 percent of the populations in most developing economies lack access to formal sector banking services (Beck, Demirguc-Kunt and Martinez Peria, 2007; World Bank, 2007).

  • The American Indians repeatedly warned John Wesley Powell against his first trip through the Grand Canyon. The canyon once contained a trail made by the god Tavwoats for a mourning chief to go to see his wife in a heaven to the West. Then the god filled up the trail with a river and forbade anyone to go there. Powell would draw Tavwoats' wrath. 2 But Powell saw the canyon geologically. He too experienced awe, but of the erosional forces of time and the river flowing. He went on to direct the US Geological Survey, and, interestingly, to head the US...
