  • The remainder of the paper is as follows. The next section defines the standard approach and the notion of luck. Then, we define the F DR and explain our new methodology which allows us to compute the F DR among the best and worst funds separately. Section 3 presents the performance measures, the estimation technique to compute the p-values as well as the mutual fund data. Section 4 contains the empirical analysis of the impact of luck on performance across the four investment categories. Section 5 concludes.

  • Under our proposal, the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) would maintain their respective roles in the supervision and regulation of state- chartered banks, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) would maintain its authorities with regard to credit unions. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) would maintain their current responsibilities and authorities as market regulators, though we propose to harmonize the statutory and regulatory frameworks for futures and securities.

  • Transfer Pricing and Valuation in Corporate Taxation analyzes the disparities between both federal statutes and regulations, and reg- ulations and administrative practice, in a highly controversial area of corporate tax policy: intra-company transfer pricing for tax pur- poses. It addresses issues that often mean millions of dollars to indi- vidual corporations, and a significant fraction of the federal govern- ment’s revenue base.

  • Estimating the results of legislative proposals to expand health insurance coverage is challenging, partly because there is so little empirical evidence concerning individual people’s responsiveness to health insurance mandates. Since 2007, adults in Massachusetts have been required to have health insurance or face penalties for noncompliance, but it may be too soon to infer the effect of mandates from that experience. Moreover, that experience itself could be unique to Massachusetts.

  • Our main empirical ndings are as follows. We nd that a range of nancial and macroeconomic variables prove helpful in selecting funds that are capable of generating future alphas. In particular, we nd evidence that a number of investment strategies (that use macroeconomic variables to predict fund returns) generate out-of-sample alphas from 7-9%/year (after fund-level trading costs and fees), when measured with a single-factor model, and from 12-13%/year with a four-factor model that controls for fund exposures to size, book-to-market, and momentum. ...

  • In the CRSP data set, different classes of the same fund appear as different funds. We identify the classes that belong to the same fund and obtain fund-level information by averaging (weighting the classes by total net assets) the class-level data provided by CRSP. We also exclude index funds from our sample. Since the index identifier in CRSP is only available as of 2003, we use funds' names to determine whether they are index funds or not. For SRI funds, we double-check the classification manually to make sure that we do not unnecessarily delete SRI funds from the sample. We...

  • If a football star touts a deodorant soap, an actress starts everyday with brand. A coffee, a tennis pro get stamina from Brand X cereal and if a talk show host drives a certain car it does not mean that your going to do that. I agree with Jozui if an atractive talk-show host gets paid to pretend to drive a car, it does not mean that your going to go buy one.

  • Monocropping can be used as a metaphor to describe educational systems in many developing countries. Education Volunteers are aware of the intense stress experienced by students whose families' hopes are pinned on their eventual success in a centralized academic system of education. The stress for you might come in trying to balance your students' expectations with your own inclinations, born of your experience in a system which, at least theoretically, aspires to equality and encourages diversity.

  • We identified 39 funds for which direct support was provided and a no-action letter was not requested. We also noted numerous funds for which a no-action request was made but no support was subsequently disclosed. By reviewing the financial statements, we obtain additional information on the nature and amount of support on an ex post basis. Finally, as previously noted, our data set focuses only on direct support to U.S.

  • By the 1980s, however, manufacturing losses in both new and old plants were being exac- erbated by foreign competition. As the United States embraced free trade, the aggregate effect was beneficial, but in some sectors and regions adverse impacts were undeniable, especially in older cities. The rise of new competitors—notably from Japan—opened the way to globalization of consumer goods production, both durable and nondurable, that was cheaper and frequently better.

  • As the ratio of oxygen to fuel (or air to fuel) decreases, the products change from the desired carbon dioxide to the undesired carbon monoxide and then to soot (which is almost pure carbon) or unburned heptane. When an engine is operating on a high value of air/fuel ratio, we say the engine is running lean. Sometimes we may also speak of a lean-burning engine. When the air/fuel ratio is low, we say that the engine is running or burning rich. The carburetor or fuel injector system of an engine can be adjusted, at least to some extent, to change this ratio. It would seem,...

  • We met first in September and were required to report by the end of the year. The FRC’s announcement invited comments on the issues raised in our terms of reference. In addition, we wrote to representative organisations and to leading audit firms inviting their comments and assistance. A list of those who offered comments is given in Appendix V. We have looked at experience in other countries and noted current developments in the United States, the European Union and elsewhere – see Appendix III.

  • The information required during implementation is determined primarily by the scope of the project – namely the purpose, results, activities, resource requirements and budget – and by the management arrangements (roles and responsibilities). At the purpose and result levels, the key indicators and sources of verification contained in the Logframe matrix provide the focus for information collection and use.

  • In the event that the OFT proposes to include any sensitive commercial or personal information in a document that will be published it will, save in exceptional circumstances, contact the relevant persons prior to publication to give them the opportunity to explain why disclosure would cause significant harm and to request excision (or aggregation or generalisation) of any material that will still be sensitive at the time of publication.

  • TSC stands for a bottom-up approach to cognition that has its basis in the claim that the evolution and development of cognition from simple to more complex processes are continuous (cf. Johnson & Rohrer 2006). The theory looks for support in the theory of biological evolution, data from developmental psychology, and analyses of the significance of the body for abstract thought by philosophers such as Dewey and Merleau-Ponty.

  • Since the first Digital Forensic Research Workshop (DFRWS) in 2001 [Pal01], the need for a stan- dard framework has been understood, yet there has been little progress on one that is generally accepted. A framework for digital forensics needs to be flexible enough so that it can support future technologies and different types of incidents. Therefore, it needs to be simple and abstract. On the other hand, if it is too simple and abstract then it is difficult to create tool requirements and test procedures for each phase....

  • The growth in use of these channels is equally astounding. Twitter reached a benchmark of 50 million tweets this year. Facebook has over 500 million worldwide users, and based on current growth rates, projects one billion total users by 2011. The average amount of time spent on social networking sites increased 82% last year. And it is not just a phenomenon among the young: according to Forrester research, a third of adults post at least once a week to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and about 70% read blogs and tweets, and watch YouTube. Never before...
