Accounting is a process that has been around for many millennia. As a third year student at SHMS, this subject has been following me for three years, which was first seemed to be too complicated and struggling in solving the problem; therefore as long as understanding the core issue, it excites me the most. In this third year, I was introduced to the “game”, which is about analyzing, predicting, decision making and calculating the financial analysis.

Through three given course works, I realize that in accounting, there are always two basic notions; the first one is accountancy is a profession and it is also consider as the methodology. It is basically defined as the method of measuring financial figures to bring assurance of decision, which is primarily utilized by managers, investors, and bankers.

While working on this project, I have had an amazing opportunity to work…...

Sport Finance Article Analysis

...Sports Marketing Concessions Market Assessment The article I read for this analysis was Concessions Market Assessment, a brief overview of the current concessions market in sports stadiums. This article was published by the Sports Marketing Research Journal. The approach in this article was from an academic perspective. It broke down the industry under competitors and major suppliers. They estimate that game-day revenue from concessions, merchandise and parking valued 10.7 billion in the United States. The analysis was done on 122 major league facilities, including stadiums and arenas. It was interesting to see that a large majority of these facilities outsource their concession to third party, outside suppliers. Only 14 facilities handled concessions in-house. For those facilities that outsourced 41.5% of arenas and 28.3% of stadiums used Aramark as their food service company. Aramark has a strong lead, with the next closest company being Levy Restaurants. Levy holds 26.8% of arenas and comes closer to Aramark in stadiums, providing concessions for 25.4%. Also, of interest, this article noted the increase in scale of concessions at sports events. Many venues are now offering high class restaurants. This trend shows that people are looking forward to dining at sporting events, rather than avoiding stadium food. The addition of these upscale dining options also creates new opportunities for revenue. As opposed to pizza and nachos, stadiums can now offer high-end......

...which includes stocks, bonds, funds, commodities and some types of derivatives. Different asset classes are considered to have different strata of annual returns. 3) Standard Deviation A measure of the dispersion of a set of data from its mean. The more spread apart the data, the higher the deviation. Standard deviation is calculated as the square root of variance. In finance, standard deviation is applied to the annual rate of return of an investment to measure the investment’s volatility and is used by investors as a gauge for the amount of expected volatility. Standard deviation is a statistical measurement that sheds light on historical volatility. For example, a volatile stock will have a high standard deviation while the deviation of a stable blue chip stock will be lower. A large dispersion tells us how much the return on the fund id deviating from the expected normal returns. 4) Risk A probability or threat of damage, injury, liability, loss, or any other negative occurrence that is caused by external or internal vulnerabilities, and that may be avoided through preemptive action. In finance, the probability that an actual return on an investment will be lower than the expected return. 5) Sharpe ratio A ratio developed by Nobel Laureate William F. Sharpe to measure risk adjusted performance. The Sharpe ratio is calculated by subtracting the risk free rate such as that of the 10 year U.S Treasury bond from the rate of return for a portfolio and dividing......
