...To estimate SBUX cost of equity I used 60 months of return, 104 weeks of return, and 250 days data of return from my spreadsheets. First, I calculated SBUX monthly beta and it equals 1.2, the weekly beta equals .8, and the daily beta was 1.00. I estimated the error in the beta estimates and appear to be .4. I got this number by subtracting the monthly beta 1.2 from the weekly beta .8. I visited four different websites such as Yahoo Finance, Reuters, Nasdaq, and the Value Line beta shown in Damodaran’s company data (spreadsheet) and each one gives a different beta. Yahoo Finance gives beta of .78, Reuters has a beta of 1.21, Nasdag gives a beta of 1.11, and Value Line beta is 1.1. My preferred value for the market risk premium from the data is the Geometric Average 1.71%. The source of the risk premium is historical and I chose it because the data is most current. People are drinking much more coffee from the past and the risk premium is low which is more secure for the company. I also used historical data for my calculation and I believe that it produces the most accurate results. Based on Yahoo Finance and SBUX 10K I found that the Debt $549.6 M, Income tax expense $674.4 M, EBT $2059.1 M and D/E equals 10.62%. My Bottom-up beta is 1.12. I came up with number by multiplying Avg Beta- unlevered with (1+(1- Tax rate) * D/E mkt). My Tax rate 32.75%. I used this Ke=r+ βMRP to get my Cost of Equity. = 5.11+1.12 (1.71) My average beta was 1.00 I calculated 1.2+.8+1= 3 =......

...FIN 540 – Homework Answer Key Chapter 22 1. Which of the following statements is most CORRECT? a. The smaller the synergistic benefits of a particular merger, the greater the scope for striking a bargain in negotiations, and the higher the probability that the merger will be completed. b. Since mergers are frequently financed by debt rather than equity, a lower cost of debt or a greater debt capacity are rarely relevant considerations when considering a merger. c. Managers who purchase other firms often assert that the new combined firm will enjoy benefits from diversification, including more stable earnings. However, since shareholders are free to diversify their own holdings, and at what's probably a lower cost, diversification benefits is generally not a valid motive for a publicly held firm. d. Operating economies are never a motive for mergers. e. Tax considerations often play a part in mergers. If one firm has excess cash, purchasing another firm exposes the purchasing firm to additional taxes. Thus, firms with excess cash rarely undertake mergers. 2. Which of the following statements is most CORRECT? a. Financial theory says that the choice of how to pay for a merger is really irrelevant because, although it may affect the firm's capital structure, it will not affect its overall required rate of return. b. The basic rationale for any financial merger is synergy and, thus, the estimation of pro forma cash flows is the single most important part of the...

As a result, the coverage requirements for ANACI and NACLC investigations have been enhanced to support a common content baseline for all agencies. Note that these enhancements apply only to those ANACI and NACLC cases submitted on an SF 86. The purpose of this FIN is to provide you with information concerning what case coverage changes have been made. The case price adjustments necessary to support these changes will be reflected in the FY 2007 case prices. ANACIINACLC Cases Currently, listed and developed issues which are identified in ANACI and NACLC cases (for non-DoD customers) are not pursued beyond the normal scope of the investigation. These cases are returned to the requesting agency so that the agency may decide whether to adjudicate the case based upon the information in hand, conduct additional follow-up themselves, or request a Reimbursable Suitability Investigation (RSI) from FISD to cover the additional issues. Beginning with FY 2007, expansion of these issues will become a standard part of both the...

For a receiver it is very important to interpret the meaning by the way of a particular the sender intended. Unfortunately, the communication process, involves stages during which meaning can be distorted and anything that serves to undermine the communication of the intended meaning is typically referred to as noise.

Culture not only dictates who talks with whom, about whom, and how the communication proceeds, it also helps to determine how people encode messages, the meanings they have for messages and the conditions and circumstances under which various messages may or may not be sent. 32: Attitude-We all know that our attitudes underlie the way we behave and communicate and the way we interpret messages from others.

...Learning Team Reflection Week 6 FIN/571 Learning Team Reflection Week 6 Many Americans are looking for ways to safeguard their investments to generate profits for years to come. People have a better understanding of the importance in researching available options to invest money that will yield a good return. Peggy Parks is just one of many who has decided to take control of her finances and invest in opening a business specializing in alpaca breeding. Capital Improvement Capital improvements are the costs that correlate to improving profit or creating improvements to resources. In Peggy Parks’ video, subsequently being dissatisfied with observing her retirement investments shift down the wrong path, Parks opted to investigate tactics to enhance her cash flow. Parks formulated an outcome to capitalize $56K into a truncated cost conservation alpaca farming enterprise. She grossed proceeds of $15K following a year of breeding. “Capital budgeting decisions are the most important investment decisions made by management” (Parrino, Kidwell, & Bates, 2012, p. ). In order to support Parks’ venture with growth, investors will want to catch a glimpse of a balance sheet that signifies the straightforwardness of the business’s wealth. Additionally, while capitalizing in a small business, most venture capitalists need to put together an assessment of whatever measures to capture in the result of a misfortune. For that reason, to...

...University of Phoenix FIN/571 Kent Kelly 1/11/15 Susanne Elliot 1. There are many reasons why a company may or may not become successful but one area of success for a company has always been the company’s foundation or structure. There are many structures for a business that will provide both advantages and disadvantages. This paper will discuss each structure. Business Structure There are three types of business structures, partnership, sole proprietorship and a general corporation. Each structure has its disadvantages and advantages but the key is doing the research to determine which business structure will be suitable for your business venture. Many people may not be interested in running a small business so a sole proprietorship may not be the favorite structure to start with, or maybe when starting a business you may want your company to start small but eventually run as a corporation. Whatever the case may be one must understand the advantages and disadvantages of each structure. Sole Proprietorship The most inexpensive and easiest way to get a business started is a sole proprietorship. The sole proprietorship business structure allows for a business owner to have complete control over...

Use the following information for Questions 1 through 5: Assume that you are nearing graduation and have applied for a job with a local bank. The bank’s evaluation process requires you to take an examination that covers several financial analysis techniques. The first section of the test asks you to address these discounted cash flow analysis problems: 1. What is the present value of the following uneven cash flow stream −$50, $100, $75, and $50 at the end of Years 0 through 3? The appropriate interest rate is 10%, compounded annually. 2. We sometimes need to find out how long it will take a sum of money (or something else, such as earnings, population, or prices) to grow to some specified amount. For example, if a company’s sales are growing at a rate of 20% per year, how long will it take sales to double? 3. Will the future value be larger or smaller if we compound an initial amount more often than annually— for example, every 6 months, or semiannually—holding the stated interest rate constant? Why? 4. What is the effective annual rate (EAR or EFF%) for a nominal rate of 12%, compounded semiannually? Compounded quarterly? Compounded monthly? Compounded daily? 5...
