Walmart Global Discount Retailer Moves from Brink and Mortar to Click and Mortar

...Since San Walton opened his first store in 1962, Walmart has grown into a global retailer with more than 4,000 store in the United States and more than 6,000 internationally. Walmart is comprised of three business segments, Walmart US, Walmart International and Sam’s Club. Walmart Global eCommerce works across all three segments. Walmart’s mission statement “We save people money so they can live better”, is not indicative of where its strategic focus areas are, but it does sound good for the average customer who has a limited budget. This mission statement leads directly into Walmart Global eCommerce goals which include combining online, social innovations with physical stores to give consumers “anywhere, anytime shopping experience” in addition to its organizational sustainability goal of creating zero waste, using only sustainable energy and selling products that sustain the environment which is important to all of Walmart’s segments including eCommerce. Walmart’s overall objective is to deliver shareholder value by increasing earnings per share, returns and maintaining strong stable returns on investment. According to Walmart CEO, Mike Duke, Walmart’s strategic focus areas are: •Making sure the company has the best retail talent at every level of the organization by recruiting, developing and retaining the best associates; •Delivering on the productivity loop that enables Walmart to operate for less so the company can drive prices even lower for its customers ...

Hard Discount

...Le Hard Discount alimentaire Le Hard Discount Alimentaire L’historique du hard-discount alimentaire -L’historique Une forme de hard-discount (non alimentaire) est apparue en 1917 aux Etats-Unis. Cependant, le hard-discount alimentaire est réellement inventé en Allemagne dans la période post-seconde guerre mondiale (1947) par les frères Albrecht fondateurs d’Aldi. Après un échec dans les années 70, le hard-discount alimentaire arrive, véritablement, en France durant l’année 1988, par le lancement d’ED. A savoir, que la grande distribution ne croit pas en cette nouvelle forme de distribution. -Concept (Concept construit sur des prix bas, 20 % à 30% inférieurs aux GMS, accord solide et de longue durée avec les fournisseurs pour réduire les couts d’achats, marges réduites pour augmenter les volumes de vente.) -Définition « Un magasin hard-discount est un libre service alimentaire avec un personnel réduit, une présentation sommaire, un assortiment limité aux produits de base, des prix bas, peu ou pas de marques nationales, mais des produits sous marques de distributeurs ou des produits sans marque ».

Ladi Discount

...Ladi Discount To: Mr. Theodor Von Hessen Chief Executive Officer, Ladi Discount From: John Faggit Business analyst, Ladi Discount Date: October 23, 2015 Subject: The development of consumer behaviour and the industry of discount stores and supermarkets in Denmark. As you requested on October 19, this briefing provides information about the current situation at the Danish market within the industry of discount stores and supermarkets as well as consumer behaviour. I here present a summary of the most important elements from my research. Key findings: The past 10 years we have experienced an increase in the consumption of the average Danish consumer on about 30 per cent. People are getting richer every year and therefore spend more money. During the last 15 years, the consumers’ spare time has been reduced by two hours in weekdays. They have less time to shop in stores and spend more time shopping online with the effect that there will be fewer “offline” shops. However, those remaining will become bigger (an average increase in area by 2-3 per cent the latest years). On that behalf, the location of shops and supermarkets is becoming even more important. In malls, and other places where there tend to be more people during the day, will become an attractive place to be located. How to attract customers will be vital in the future where clean concepts and interior design in shops will be essential to retain customers and attract new. The turnover......

Causality and the Diversification Discount

...1 Causality and the Diversification Discount 1 Introduction Does corporate diversification, i.e. the expansion of a firm’s business operations into unrelated areas, destroy shareholder value? The wealth effects associated with conglomerates have been controversially discussed in scholarly journals ever since the seminal papers of Lang and Stulz (1994) and Berger and Ofek (1995) suggested that diversification reduces shareholder value. Both find that conglomerates are attributed with a lower market value than a portfolio of comparable focussed firms operating in the same businesses as the conglomerate. This finding seemed to suggest the hypothesis of a “diversification discount”. In line with this Scharfstein and Stein (2000) postulate "it has become almost axiomatic among researchers in finance and strategy that a policy of corporate diversification is typically value reducing.” Yet, subsequently financial scholars have challenged this dogma of a diversification discount. They did so with respect to the method used (Mansi and Reeb (2002); Glaser and Müller (2010)) and the causal interference (Graham et al. (2002); Campa and Kedia (2002); Villalonga (2004)). Taking these latest developments into account, the empirical evidence on the value effects of corporate diversification is mixed. The controversy that has evolved around these wealth effects provides a suitable setting to investigate the pitfalls associated with causal analysis and interference......

My Discount Rate

...My Personal Discount rate is... Discount rate refers to the interest rate that you are willing to pay on a given amount of money today to end up with a given amount of money in the future. Recently I requested an auto loan to buy a new or used car. I was very much interested with a Honda accord. I have $2000 in my saving account to be used as a down payment. During my window shopping I found it very difficult to find a car that I’m willing to pay for it. The main reason not to come into clear decision was which one of these cars will save me some money and spares my driving for longer time. Since I know how discount rate works, I have been able to make decisions easily than I expected. New 2015 Honda accord costs $24000 with zero mileage on it. The interest rate for this car over a period of five years is 1.49%. I f I put down payment of $2000, and then finance $22000. Therefore the total loan owed after five years will be approximated to $27000. On the other hand I have a used 2008 Honda accord for $11750 under interest rate of 17% for five years. After $2000 down payment, the total amount owed after five years is approximately to $23400. Based on the simple financial analysis above I found that the discount rate on a new car is much lower than that of the used car. This lead me to a better decision of choosing a new Honda accord over used one. New Honda accord has lower uncertainty compared to a used one. Over that period of time new Honda is more......

Solutions to Bonds and Discounts

...Chapter 4 Answers to Concept Review Questions 1. Managers need to understand how bonds and stocks are priced because (1) firms regularly issue stocks and bonds to raise money for investment (2) understanding how securities are priced is helpful when conducting an acquisition or a divestiture, (3) the stock price is an objective signal of how managers are performing, and (4) finance theory teaches that the goal of the manager should be to maximize the firm’s stock price. 5. The coupon rate equals the annual coupon payment divided by par value. The coupon yield equals the annual coupon payment divided by the bond’s market price. 6. A bond sells at a discount when the bond’s coupon rate is lower than the market’s required rate of return on the bond. 11. An issuer benefits from an option to call a bond, because such an option allows the issuer to lock in a more favorable interest rate if rates should fall.. The option to convert bonds into common stock benefits bondholders. Once the stock price rises high enough, the value of the bonds starts to behave like the stock’s value—the prices start to rise. So convertible bonds offer investors some minimal level of return plus a lot of upside potential. 13. The price of a Treasury note quoted as 98:10 is 98 10/32 percent of par value or $983.125.

Gordons Dividends Discount Model

...Dividend discount model The dividend discount model (DDM) is a way of valuing a company based on the theory that a stock is worth the discounted sum of all of its future dividend payments.[1] In other words, it is used to value stocks based on the net present value of the future dividends. The equation most always used is called the Gordon growth model. It is named after Myron J. Gordon, who originally published it in 1959;[2] although the theoretical underpin was provided by John Burr Williams in his 1938 text "The Theory of Investment Value". The variables are: is the current stock price. is the constant growth rate in perpetuity expected for the dividends. is the constant cost of equity for that company. is the value of the next year's dividends. There is no reason to use a calculation of next year's dividend using the current dividend and the growth rate, when management commonly disclose the future year's dividend and websites post it. Contents[hide] * 1 Derivation of equation * 2 Income plus capital gains equals total return * 3 Growth cannot exceed cost of equity * 4 Some properties of the model * 5 Problems with the model * 6 References * 7 Further reading * 8 External links | Derivation of equation The model sums the infinite series which gives the current price P.

...REV: APRIL 12, 2007 PANKAJ GHEMAWAT Wal-Mart Stores’ Discount Operations In October 1985, Forbes declared Sam Walton the richest person in the United States. With his four children, he owned stock worth $2.8 billion. That put him $1 billion ahead of the next person on the list, H. Ross Perot. By the end of April 1986, Walton’s net worth had swelled by another $1.6 billion. Walton’s fortune consisted of a 39% stake in Wal-Mart Stores, a retailer that had focused historically on the Sunbelt. Although Wal-Mart had begun to diversify into other areas, discounting still accounted for 91% of the company’s sales in 1985 and 96% of its pretax profits. Wal-Mart had consistently led other discounters in both profitability and growth. Exhibit 1 summarizes Wal-Mart’s history over the past decade; Exhibit 2 compares its performance with that of its competitors. As a result of such comparisons, Wal-Mart’s market value in early 1986 was twice K mart’s, even though it was only a third as large. Analysts thought that Wal-Mart would overtake K mart as the largest discounter by the turn of the century, but they were divided over whether Wal-Mart stock remained a good buy at a price-earnings multiple of 26. This case describes discount retailing and the distinctive features of Wal-Mart’s discount operations. It also sketches the areas into which Wal-Mart was diversifying in the mid-1980s. Discount Retailing Discount stores emerged in the United States in the mid-1950s.......

...received from Metropolitan Bank. Although, the requirements of Southern Bank and Trust Bank seem to be rigid, the more monies that he receives can however be used in the firm’s expansion as well as paying off some of the company’s liabilities. As a result, Jones will be allowed more flexibility in the operations of the business. He will then be able to increase his assets in the form of inventory and capital, which in turn will result in his business being in a better position to finance its operations. In addition, Jones Electrical will be able to benefit from the trade discounts which are offered by his suppliers because this arrangement would allow him to pay his creditors. With respect to the early payment discount of only 2%, it is advisable that the Company, continue to credit its supplies and make alternative arrangements with respect of repayment to its suppliers. The company needs cash and the discount of the 2% does not put the company in a better financial position. It is always important to inject equity so that your company will be able to increase its assets, which will eventually lead to an increase in sales and revenue. Another issue is that with respect to the proposed growth of the company, Jones had predicted forecasting in sales to increase significantly therefore the urgent need for a very large cash flow into the company would help significantly. Evaluate solutions Pros Cons Should Jones Electrical decide to accept the loan from Southern Bank and......

Fin 534: Financial Management Capital Budgeting

...Capital Budgeting Assignment 2 Ebony N. Robinson FIN 534: Financial Management January 30, 2011 Professor: Dr. Glenn L. Stevens Strayer University Abstract The Net Present Value rule states that when making an investment decision, choose the project with the highest NPV. If the objective is to maximize wealth, then “the NPV rule always gives the correct answer (Berk and DeMarzo, 2011).” According to the text, we use the NPV rule to evaluate capital budgeting decisions, making decisions that maximize NPV (Berk and DeMarzo, 2011). Determining which projects to accept or reject is based on whether or not the project has a positive NPV. NPV compares the value of a dollar today to the value of that same dollar in the future, taking inflation and returns into account. Based upon the principle of this rule, a project with a positive NPV is accepted because it ensures that the future value of that same dollar will be greater. The following scenario is provided to evaluate Bauer Industries’ project to manufacture lightweight trucks. Bauer Industries is an automobile manufacturer. Management is currently evaluating a proposal to build a plant that will manufacture lightweight trucks. Bauer plans to use a cost of capital of 12% to evaluate this project. Based on extensive research, it has prepared the following incremental free cash flow projections (in millions of dollars): |  ...
