  • This paper provides a review of the methods for measuring portfo- lio performance and the evidence on the performance of profession- ally managed investment portfolios. Traditional performance measures, strongly influenced by the Capital Asset Pricing Model of Sharpe (1964), were developed prior to 1990. We discuss some of the prop- erties and important problems associated with these measures.

  • Factoring: Normally, when the suppliers have decided to sell goods on credit, they believe that the customers are trustworthy and will be able to pay their invoices. they fell sure that they will get paid. But they still have the problem that the customers may delay payment and their money is tied up in unpaid invoices, which is harmful for their business. Factoring is a way of raising money from unpaid invoices. The factor agrees to buy the invoices of the suppliers at a discount. In this way the suppliers do not have to wait for a long thime for payment.

  • Asset pricing theory tries to understand the prices or values of claims to uncertain payments. A low price implies a high rate of return, so one can also think of the theory as explaining why some assets pay higher average returns than others. To value an asset, we have to account for the delay and for the risk of its payments. The effects of time are not too difficult to work out. However, corrections for risk are much more important determinants of an many assets’ values. For example, over the last 50 years U.S. stocks have given a real return of about 9% on average. Of...

  • In certain countries the Company also provides postretirement benefits other than pensions to various employees. The cost relating to such plans consists of the present value of the benefits attributed on equal basis to each year of service, and interest cost on the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation, which is a discounted amount. The transition obligation is being recognized through charges to earnings over a twenty-year period beginning in 1993 in the US and in 1995 for all other plans.

  • 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...

  • In 2002, under the CATALYST program, Pathfinder facilitated a partnership between two pharmaceutical firms, Schering Peruana and Pharmacia Upjohn, the social marketing organization, APROPO, and the Peruvian International Planned Parenthood Affiliate, INPPARES, to create a network of professional midwives in Lima called RedPlan Salud. Each pharmaceutical company provided $10,000 and a supply of contraceptives to launch the network. By joining RedPlan Salud, midwives procure discounted reproductive health products and benefit from INPPARES’s promotion of the franchise.

  • We find that dynamically consistent (exponential) impatience cannot explain the magnitude of the decline. The model needs either an implausibly large degree of annual impatience, or a very large intertemporal elasticity of substitution. Intuitively, the problem arises because the exponential discount rate is constant over time:1 even a mild degree of short-run discounting, say a daily discount rate of 1 percent, implies a daily discount factor of 0.99 and thus an annual discount factor of 0.99365 = 0.03.

  • What happens if debt securities are bought for an amount other than par value, for exam- ple, at 98 or 104? The investment is recorded at its cost, which is greater or less than the face amount of the debt. Any premium or discount should be amortized in order to bring the carrying value up (or down) to par value at maturity. Otherwise, a substantial gain or loss will be recognized at maturity. This is particularly true when the investment is a so- called “zero coupon” bond that carries little or no annual cash interest payment.

  • METHODS There are two methods of amortization, the straight-line and effective interest methods. Straight line is simpler and is much more common in practice, but the effective interest method is preferable because it provides a constant yield on the recorded value of the investment. Both methods will be illustrated in this chapter. The effective interest method must be used whenever the premium or discount is material.However, straight line may be used when the results are not materially different than the effective interest method.

  • For our interest rate change variable, we use changes in the U.S. 3-month commercial paper rate. A short-term commercial paper rate is a reasonable proxy for the risk-free rate (e.g., Fama and French 2001), and the risk-free rate is a component of the discount rates of both stocks and bonds. Unfortunately, daily data for the commercial paper rate are available only after 1970, with weekly increments before that. This data limitation prompts us to present two sets of results. Panel A of Table 4 presents the first set of results for the period 1915-1970, where the...

  • A diaspora bond is a debt instrument issued by a country — or potentially, a subsovereign entity or even a private corporation — to raise financing from its overseas diaspora. Israel annually since 1951 and India on three occasions since 1991 have raised over US$35 billion using these bonds. The rationale behind the Government of Israel’s issuance of diaspora bonds has been different from that of the Government of India’s. The Government of Israel has offered a flexible menu of diaspora bonds since 1951 to keep the Jewish diaspora engaged.

  • Certainty Equivalent Approach Steps: 1) Adjust all after-tax cash flows by certainty equivalent factors to get certain cash flows. 2) Discount the certain cash flows by the risk-free rate of interest. How do we determine the appropriate risk-adjusted discount rate (k*) to use? Many firms set up risk classes to categorize different types of projects.

  • Economic Incentives Economic incentives are closely related to the other two categories of practice-modifying factors. Financial issues can exert both stimulatory and inhibitory influences on clinical practice. In general, physicians are paid on a feefor-service, capitation, or salary basis. In fee-for-service, the more the physician does, the more the physician gets paid. The economic incentive in this case is to do more. When fees are reduced (discounted fee-for-service), doctors tend to increase the number of services billed for.

  • Zhang (2004) designed a multi-index model to determine the effect of industry, country and international factors on asset pricing. Byers and Groth (2000) defined the asset pricing process as a function utility (economic factors) and non-economic (psychic) factors. Clerc and Pfister (2001) posit that monetary policy is capable of influencing asset prices in the long run. Any change in interest rates especially unanticipated change affects growth expectations and the rates for discounting investment future cash flows.

  • Describe your pricing policies and how they are determined. Discuss the influences of the competition, discounts, cost of goods, market forces, and other factors that will affect pricing. Justify your prices, particularly if they are substantially above or below the prices of similar products/services in the marketplace. Above all, demonstrate that your pricing decision is based on your company’s ability to make a profit.

  • The rationale for using oil price movements as a factor affecting stock valuations is that, in theory, the value of stock equals the discounted sum of expected future cash flows. These cash flows are affected by macroeconomic events that can be influenced by oil shocks. Indeed, oil exports affect the main economic variables in GCC countries: earnings, government budget revenues and expenditures and aggregate demand. So oil price increases should positively affect corporate output and earnings, and then stock returns in these countries.
