  • In a country like the US, That is founded upon competitions and capitalism, producing clever television advertisements is the only way to keep up with a company’s competitors.

  • To control for management company effects, we compare SRI and conventional funds run by the same management company and find that performance differences become small and statistically insignificant. These results suggest that differences between SRI and conventional funds may be explained by management company-level factors that determine both fund performance and the company's decision to manage SRI funds. We further explore this issue by distinguishing between SRI funds run by management companies specialized in SRI and those run by generalist companies.

  • Protocols and data sources present other variables considered determining average and peak load requirements. In terms of effect on EPS rates, our experience is that systems using UDP can generate more events more quickly, but this creates a higher load for the management tool, which actually slows collection and correlation when compared to TCP. One of our reviewing analysts has seen UDP packets dropped at 3,000 EPS, while TCP could maintain a 100,000 EPS load. It’s also been our experience that use of both protocols in single environment....

  • As with every hypothesis test, inference based on alpha estimates can lead to the detection of a lucky fund, namely a fund with a significant estimated alpha, while its true alpha is equal to zero. When a single performance test is run on the estimated alpha of one fund (or one portfolio of funds1), luck is easily controlled by setting the significance level γ (or alternatively the Size of the test). For instance, if γ is set to 0.05, the probability of finding one lucky fund under the hypothesis that its alpha is zero amounts to 0.05, by construction.

In sum, the pace of recovery in output and employment has slowed somewhat in recent months, in part because of slower-than-expected growth in consumer spending, as well as continued weakness in residential and nonresidential construction. Despite this recent slowing, however, it is reasonable to expect some pickup in growth in 2011 and in subsequent years.
