Industry: Industrial goods - diversified machinery (Residential and commercial). Provides products, services and solutions to enhance the quality of air and security in homes and buildings, climate control and refrigeration along with Industrial technologies that help companies enhance energy efficiency, productivity and operations.

Industry drivers: Economic expansion, new innovative solutions.

Industry outlook: CHECK

Downside scenario: * A sharp increase in costs of goods sold (E.g. ↑ in Steel prices where between 01/2007 to 06/2010 the price of steel coil rose from $500/tonne to $800/tonne) * If overall world economy continues to deteriorate. Ingersoll’s core businesses of refrigeration, industrial and security equipment’s are heavily dependent on demand from an expanding economy (E.g. if convenience stores ↑, D for refrigeration ↑) * If global competition increases (35% of sales are foreign & in highly competitive markets) or if major competitors (United Technologies/Textron) develops more efficient patents/cheaper products and cuts into market share.

Revenue/Earnings * Ingersoll is a leading company in the production/design/servicing of refrigeration, industrial and security equipments. Its brands are well known as high quality products to consumers. * Owns numerous patents and patent applications. Business is not dependent on any single patent/License or any group of them. * Has decreased exposure to cyclical, low growth and asset intensive businesses. * Concentration low (No customer accounts to > 10% of sales) * Ingersoll’s EBIT Margins for the past 4 years are (12.59 -’06, 12.42 -’07, (18.98) - ’08 & 6.53 - ‘09). Historically strong, in 2008, the company took heavy losses due to a decline in worldwide macroeconomic conditions and ill-advised investments. With exception of the down year in 2008, they have consistently maintained a decent earnings margin. (Seems to be recovering in ’09 as EBIT margin remains positive at 6.53). * Ingersoll’s Interest Coverage ratios for the past 4 years are (6.57 -’06, 7.99 -’07, (10.23) - ’08 & 2.85 - ‘09). * As the world economy recovers, demands for Ingersoll’s products are likely to follow the same trend.

Liquidity/Cash Flow * Operating income is $841.6 MM – ’09, ($2,573.8) MM – ’08 & $1,507.8 MM – ’07. (Positive sign as company shows signs of recovery in 2009) * Current ratio for the past 4 years are (1.35 -’06, 2.38 -’07, .98 - ’08 & 1.21 - ‘09). With exception of ’08, Ingersoll’s current assets have been sufficient to cover its current liabilities. * Average A/R Collection days are (58.65 -’06, 69.32 -’07, 69.17 - ’08 & 67.32 - ‘09) * Average Accounts Payable days are (40.83 -’06, 39.17 -’07, 41.97 - ’08 & 47.94 - ‘09) * Although payable days are approx. 20 days shorter than their A/R collection days, Ingersoll’s A/R and A/P terms have remained very consistent for the past 4 years. Terms are similar their major competitors.

Ayn Rand

...Ayn Rand was born Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum in St. Petersburg, Russia on February 2nd, 1905. She produced many works of fiction within her life and is applauded for the cultivation of her philosophical system-Objectivism. Ms. Rand passed away in 1982; her writing and ideals continue to influence society, literature, and surprisingly, the video game industry. After reading Her Second Career and Good Copy, it is easy to see why this author is held in such high esteem. Despite the tone of the stories being very different, the concept of wealth, the behavior of the main characters, and the traits of Ayn Rand's philosophy are all shared. While Her Second Career takes place in the glitzy scenes of Hollywood and Good Copy in the small-town of Dicksville, Ayn Rand does a fantastic job of conveying the influence of wealth no matter the setting. The characters in both stories run the gambit on the socioeconomic scale of the haves and the have-nots. Claire Nash lives a lofty life with "a palace in Beverly Hills and two Rolls Royces" pg. 112 while Laury McGee resides in an old apartment building. It is not until Ms. Nash undertakes Winston Ayer's challenge that she is forced to understand the struggles of aspiring actresses and the financial hardships endured in pursuit of their dreams. In Good Copy, it is not until Mr. McGee has kidnapped Ms. Winford that he receives his crash course in economics. It is obvious to the reader that Laury is aware of Ms. Winford's value based......

The Hunger Games

...What’s a world without love? Love is around us all day; love is the reason why 1most of us were born. Name one person who doesn’t love another, it is not possible. In the novel, The Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta survived off love while sent to the hunger games arena to fight for their lives .Also, in another novel, Anthem by Any Rand Equality 7-2521 and Liberty 5-3000 lived in a dystopian society where love was forbidden where they lived. In the novels The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Anthem by Ayn Rand readers will see the main characters differences and similarities of how love bought them together. Have you ever heard the saying “love will make you do crazy things?” In both novels Katniss and Equality 7-2521 love made them do crazy things. “And you find yourself rooting for lovers who literally kill themselves to stay alive” Katniss and Peeta fought against twelve other districts just to stay alive. Katniss and Peeta were both from the same district, but was love enough to keep them both alive? Equality was born in a dystopian society everything was meant to be “perfect” so apart of their perfect life love wasn’t in it. Equality 7-2521 was a different boy. He was always smarter than the others but since everyone was the same he hid his advance knowledge that he had. “We wish to write this name. We wish to break but we dare not speak it above whisper.” For men is forbidden to take notice in woman.” This is the type of world characters from Anthem lived......

Slumming It

...commands, or the thought that people could shape themselves on their own. Meaning they could work together with others around them and make use of local knowledge more effective than if they were organized by a central control. While a Keynesian idea of a government is needed to help boost economies in the time of when money is in need to lower taxes and inspire demands, however in Dharavi everything is controlled among them not with an outside government assistance. I believe that Keynesian economics would not work in this scenario in Dharavi because Keynesian economics is focused and works best in a short term while Dharavi needs so much more assistance. How might a Hayekian respond to Dharavi? Would Libertarians, Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand (from the egoism article) who are largely Hayekians, be horrified by this scenario? Unlike a Keynesian a Hayekian would be satisfied with what Dharavi was able to achieve. Hayekians believed that when people were able to freely do things in life and make decisions that the economy ran more efficiently. There economics is defined by a more freedom economy and less government interference. I feel that Libertarianism would not be horrified; their theory is of freedom from the government as long as there is no harm to others because of that freedom. I also think that a libertarian would be scared for people’s safety because of the poisonous living conditions in Dharavi. Are the technologies produced in Dharavi and the barefoot......

Dystopian Society Exposed In Ayn Rand's Anthem

...Ayn Rand’s Anthem portrays a collectivist-minded and totalitarian society (also referred to as a dystopian society) where freedom is limited. The dystopian society strongly believes in the idea that everybody is equal and that everybody should only care about the each other and not about themselves. The society had created different councils, each with its own job, and people were not allowed to choose their job, but it was chosen for them. The society believed in one quote that summarized all their beliefs. Ayn Rand talks about this in the following quote: “Everything done by many is good. Everything done by one man is evil (Rand, 77).” The main character of Anthem, Equality 7-2521, was born differently, according to his society, because he had different features than the others. Accepting his difference, he started to separate himself from the society. He did this becuase his 7-2521's real passion was science and just wanted to understand the world, but sadly, in Equality 7-2521's society, he was forbidden from asking questions. Though he was supposed to be a street sweeper. he did not...

Theme Of Collectivism In Ayn Rand's Anthem

...What is the difference amongst individualism and collectivism? Anthem, by Ayn Rand, is a select novel. It encloses individualism and how people can conform to society and do as they are told without knowing the consequences and outcomes of their verdicts. Furthermore, it teaches the importance of self-expression and the freedom that comes along with being your own person. Ayn Rand was a person with distinct intellect, which is reflected with her novel Anthem. In Anthem, there are leaders, known as the council. The council has a restricted form of deliberating. Pointing out the evils of capitalism and class inequality, the council preserves collectivism. This dystopia is a response to having no social classes known as the “Unspeakable Times”....

Altruism In Ayn Rand's Anthem

... Socialism. Altruism. Communism. The great evil of collectivism bears many names, but all are based upon the same unattainable ideal: equality. The societies that embrace these totalitarian political forms, including that of Ayn Rand’s Anthem, intend to become the paragon of parity by having their citizens sacrifice their own happiness for that of their brethren. The leaders of Anthem’s supposedly egalitarian society justify this subtly sadistic method of rule with the ideals of equality, fraternity, and selflessness. The principles that blinded Equality 7-2521’s brethren to the grim reality they faced too often imbue members of modern society, especially as these standards are broadcasted by religious, social, and governmental groups. The change in personal philosophy which accompanies the reading and analysis of Anthem is one of many weapons mankind possesses in the never-ending battle against the elective tyranny of selflessness. Countless aspects of this society display the ruling faction’s justification for their method of control; the education, names, and careers that men are exposed to every day, some of the things which most shape a person, are built around the unattainable ideal of altruism. “We are nothing. Mankind is all. By the grace of our brothers are we allowed our lives. We exist through, by and for our brothers who are the State. Amen.” (21) This mantra is first introduced to men at the age of five, when their minds are most malleable, and reinforced......

Brotherhood In Ayn Rand's Anthem

...In Ayn Rand's novella Anthem, a child is conceived in the Time of Mating, a child born different, curious, unique, a child to be known by the name of Equality 7-2521. Growing up in a post-apocalyptic collectivist society, Equality was repeatedly ostracized by his teachers and friends. While writing about his time in the Home of Students, Equality talks about how he had never considered learning as a challenge, but instead, it was a thirst that was never quenched. His teachers told him to be different - superior - was to be evil, and they looked down upon that. All Equality wanted was to be normal and to please his brothers, but he had believed he was cursed. Equality had become of age to visit the Council of Vocations where he was assigned the duty of street sweeper. Had been convinced he was guilty, but now he had a way to atone for it, Equality's motivation was to accommodate the will of his brothers. While working as a street sweeper, Equality finds a tunnel around the great ravine behind the Theatre, as well as his new purpose and his future. Every night, Equality returns to the tunnel with stolen equipment: flints, knives, paper, glass vials, powders, acids, strange metals, and the bodies of the animals from the City Cesspool. In the tunnel, Equality builds a brick oven where a fire starts to flicker within. After spending time in the tunnel, Equality had found "the first peace [h]e ha[s] known in twenty years" (37). He was overjoyed by his time quenching his thirst for...

Motivation In Ayn Rand's Anthem '

...Anthem Essay “A champion needs motivation above and beyond winning.” Pat Riley, known as the best NBA coach, once said this, and many people throughout the world believe that this is an accurate statement. Motivation is more important than winning, because winning doesn’t happen without motivation. Thinking in terms of the book Anthem, Equality, the main character, is different than his peers because of his motivation; Equality’s motivation is as important to today’s society as it was in his, and it continues to change the world. Congruently, Rand demonstrates her opinion towards society and motivation throughout the story: She feels that specific motivation is one way for people to show their individualism and personality. Equality shows his personality through his motivation. Motivation is a desire that causes a person to act (Webster’s Dictionary 1180). The effects of motivation are multiple in number and thought. Motivation creates an attitude of the aspects of learning, which are wanting to understand and elaborate material (Ormrod). The creation of an abundance of ideas, activities, and inventions were driven by...
