...Bumpy Ride for Stocks Post-Fed By JONATHAN CHENG Stocks bounced in and out of positive territory and the dollar and the 10-year Treasury note fell after the Federal Reserve said it would buy $600 billion in longer-term securities by the middle of next year as part of its latest effort to prime the domestic economy. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 11 points, or 0.1%, to 11178, while the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index fell less than one point to 1193 and the Nasdaq Composite fell less than one point to 2533. [pic]Getty Images A financial professional looks over at his screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in the middle of the trading day Nov. 3. The 10-year Treasury note sank, pushing the yield up to 2.634%. Gold and metals also fell as the Fed said it would maintain its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its securities holdings, and purchase a further $600 billion of longer-term Treasury securities by the end of the second quarter of 2011 at a pace of about $75 billion a month. The Fed said it would also "regularly review the pace of its securities purchases and the overall size of the asset-purchase program" as economic data flows in. Expectations of Fed easing had helped fuel a two-month surge on the stock market that has added 12% to the Dow. The Fed move was generally in line with market estimates, putting to rest the idea that the central bank would proceed on a more cautious step-by-step basis from the get-go...

...Stock In America we have many different ways to pay people. So of those payments made to the people are made by cash, direct deposit, and most of the time checks. Another way a business can pay a person is with stock. Stock typically takes the form of shares of common stock (or voting shares). As a unit of ownership, common stock typically carries voting rights that can be exercised in corporate decisions. Preferred stock differs from common stock in that it typically does not carry voting rights but is legally entitled to receive a certain level of dividend payments before any dividends can be issued to other shareholders Stock even has created many jobs for the public such as stock clerk, stock broker, or you can even just pick it up as a hobby. Such as a lot of the everyday people who invest in the stock market every day. Sometimes with a few stock purchases a person could possibly double, triple, or quadruple their money they invested. If it wasn’t for stock in America our economy could be in a world of hurt. We have experienced sudden drops in stock called the stock market crash this happened twice once October 24, 1929 and again on October 19, 1987. It’s safe to say those were bad days for people who had a lot of many wrapped up in the stock market.

...Assignment 1: Strategic Management and Strategic Competitiveness A Report on AT &T Wireless History AT&T was founded in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the first telephone. For over 100 years, AT &T was the primary local phone company, which was considered a monopoly until AT&T and the Justice Department agree on diversification in which AT&T split off it’s local phone service into seven regional bell companies that operate the local services. AT&T then primarily focused on its long distance manufacturing, and research and development operations. In 1994 AT&T acquired McCaw Cellular, in which eventually adopted the AT&T Wireless name. Finally in 2001, AT&T completes its spin-off of AT&T Wireless, which becomes an independent company. Vision & Mission Statement “We aspire to be the most admired and valuable company in the world. Our goal is to enrich our customer’s personal lives and to make their businesses more successful by bringing to market exciting and useful commuincations services, building shareowner value in the process”.

Needless to say, this merging would be beneficial for both AT&T and Comcast. Firstly, Comcast will still focus on its cable and broadband business and engage in innovation the cable and broadband services. By merging AT&T, Comcast will absorb the telephone services from AT&T, who is the leader in this industry. This acquisition would allow the new corporation, AT&T Comcast, to develop and provide a variety of correlated products, which would increase the economies of scope. Secondly, because the consumers’ demands for high-tech are increasing, the future of broadband technology is very impressive. Comcast has the potential to leading this industry if merging with AT&T. From the case analysis, AT&T Comcast will take over 22 million cable subscribers, which is about 30% of U.S. cable subscriber. Also the new company would become the largest cable operator. This would be a great opportunity for AT&T Comcast to lead the broadband industry. Thirdly, becoming the largest cable operator, AT&T Comcast will decrease the threat of programmers (Disney, Viacom and News Corp) and decrease the threat from substitutes such like DIRECTV, which is satellite operator.

Brief History of Att

.... Jobs! Jobs were the first thing I thought about when hearing this new announcement. And I must admit I was impressed with his ability to not give up and continue to progressively move forward towards future capital and a broader customer base. I think Mr. Stephenson is a charismatic leader that inspires others to go beyond expectations. I think he possess all the traits of a great leader like drive, self-confidence and probably a need for power. Taking a look at his resume and just how quickly he moved up the chain into some of the most powerful positions in the company proves that he has always wanted to lead and not follow. In short he’s been a great asset and has proved his worth at remaining CEO of ATT&T even if it did come with a huge loss. I’m sure that loss was nothing but motivation in how he could attempt another avenue that provides even more growth and opportunity. References Barnes, M. (2011, March 21).

The average 5 years after tax return is 8.25 and top area is between 13.57-45.11. So I choose above 14, so my chosen mutual fund has the top 5 years after tax return. Closed to New Investment= No It is important to determine whether open to new investments. If it were closed to new investments, I would be useless for me to recommend others to choose this mutual fund.

Planning for a Physical Inventory Time spent planning and preparing for the physical inventory will streamline the count process and reduce errors and rework. A. Clearly define roles and responsibilities. In general, the inventory counting process and the reconciliation should be supervised or performed by an independent person. This independent person should NOT be the person who checks in or receives inventory, maintains the inventory records for the items, or is responsible for the daily security and accountability of the inventory. An example of participants' possible responsibilities follows: 1. Manager: plans and supervises inventory, makes test counts, approves adjustment journal. 2. Staff Member #1: tabulates physical count and identifies possible errors. 3. Staff Member #2: reconciles physical count to Oracle Financials; creates adjustment journal. 4.

How to Find the Value of a Dividend Stock

...1. How to Find the Value of a Dividend Stock A dividend growth discount model provides a simple approach to value a stock with dividends that grow at a stable rate. Definition of 'Gordon Growth Model' A model for determining the intrinsic value of a stock, based on a future series of dividends that grow at a constant rate. Given a dividend per share that is payable in one year, and the assumption that the dividend grows at a constant rate in perpetuity, the model solves for the present value of the infinite series of future dividends. Where: D = Expected dividend per share one year from now k = required rate of return for equity investor G = Growth rate in dividends (in perpetuity) Gordon Dividend Growth Discount Model The Gordon Growth Model requires 3 inputs: * Expected dividends one year from now (D1) *   Assumed Dividend Growth Rate (GR) *  Your required Rate of Return (RR) D1 The Value of Stock =     ————–                                    (RR – GR) Illustration of Dividend Growth Model Using Intel (INTC)     Assumptions:    * Expected Annual Dividend One Year From Now (D1) = $0.89 * Assumed Dividend Growth Rate (GR) = 6%  (.06) * Your Required Rate of Return (RR) = 10% (.10)                              .                                          0.89 Value of Intel  =          ————–    =      $22.25                                    (.10 – .06) *  Since Intel is trading in the general area we can conclude...
