MKTG 390: Individual Assignment 1 Coors Distributorship: Back-of-the-Envelope Break-Even For this assignment, you need to help Mr. Brownlow make the investment decision by using the information in the case and the data from the studies listed below. You may also need to make your own assumptions (e.g., interest rate) in order to carry out the break-even analysis.

Your analysis should involve the following steps: 1. First, find out whether Mr. Brownlow will break even in the first year (1990) given all the information he has. If yes, he should go ahead with the distributorship. If not, he should seriously reconsider the investment decision. 2. If you think he will break even, then what is the expected profit for the first year (1990)? 3. Finally, conduct some sensitivity analyses to assess how his attitude towards risk may influence the conclusion. Please follow the guidelines I provided below. Please submit your assignment onto Blackboard before class on Nov 5. Please make sure you provide enough information of your analysis so that your assignment can be evaluated without further explanation.

1. Industry demand (1990): The first step in the break-even analysis is to figure out the industry demand for 1990, using the Per Capita Method or the Tax Paid Method. Try both and see if they would give you similar answers.

Per Capita Method:
Study B: Entire population for Kent and Sussex for 1990 (112,200 + 116,800)
Study A: 27.2 gallons/person based on entire population

Study B: Population Age 21 and over for K and S for 1990 (75,200 + 85,300)
Study A: 39.4 gallons/person based on 21 and over

Tax Paid Method:
Study E (taxes paid) for 1987 and 1988: \$287,980 and \$306,000

2. Fixed Costs: The next step is to calculate the fixed cost for the first year (1990) using the following information. Keep in mind that the…...

...As I enter my first college class, my attention goes to Professor Feldman, a tall, slender woman in a loose pearl blouse with black dress pants. The combination of her graceful stance and scholarly presence distinguishes her already from the chaos of the lecture room. The calm demeanor spreads through the room as she gradually turns the lights down low, signaling the beginning of lecture, and gives life to the art historian’s companion, the slide projector. Her slow and steady speech is punctuated by inflections at nearly every other word and reflects her scholarly presence. She picks her words carefully and you can sense the moment’s thought before each. Her precisely chosen words make each one valuable as I frantically try to catch them all. Feldman incorporates her elevated vocabulary in daily speech and lecture, requiring that I form my own vocabulary list: mélange, koine, cache, lingua franca, etc. In spite of being intimidated by Professor Feldman’s scholarship, the fellow human being, Marian Feldman, shows through at times. She does not hesitate to admit “When did those excavations take place?” or “Who was that guy who ruled Babylon? I never remember that one.” At one point she might exclaim, “Well, it doesn’t matter anyway” followed by a signature chuckle. She welcomes corrections or additions by students, and some questions lead her to guiltily admit, “You caught me. I was trying to avoid that one because, well, we just......

...Atheist Professor vs Believing Student "LET ME EXPLAIN THE problem science has with Jesus Christ." The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. "You're a Christian, aren't you, son?" "Yes, sir." "So you believe in God?" "Absolutely." "Is God good?" "Sure! God's good." "Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?" "Yes." "Are you good or evil?" "The Bible says I'm evil." The professor grins knowingly. "Ahh! THE BIBLE!" He considers for a moment. "Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help them? Would you try?" "Yes sir, I would." "So you're good...!" "I wouldn't say that." "Why not say that? You would help a sick and maimed person if you could... in fact most of us would if we could...God doesn't." [No answer.] "He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you answer that one?" [No answer] The elderly man is sympathetic. "No, you can't, can you?" He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. In philosophy, you have to go easy with the new ones. "Let's start again, young fella.....Is God good?" "Er... Yes." "Is Satan good?" "No." "Where does Satan come from?" The student falters. "From... God..." "That's right. God made Satan, didn't he?" The......

...the general belief of that time, believed that something had occurred between verses 1 and 2 which reduced the earth to a desolate condition. Furthermore, evidence is found in that the Jewish scholars who wrote the Massoretic Text, incorporated “indicators” to guide the reader to correct punctuation. One such mark is called “Rebhia,” which is classified as a “disjunctive accent” intended to notify the reader to pause before proceeding to the next verse because there is a break in the text. A mark of this kind appears at the end of Gen. 1:1. Custance states, “It is one indication among others, that the initial waw which introduces verse 2 should be rendered “but” rather than “and,” a dis-junctive rather than a con-junctive, 14. Professor E. J. Young also remarked about the pause thusly: “The word ------- (at the end of verse 1) is separated from what follows by means of the disjunctive accent Rebhia, and so we are to let our thoughts dwell upon it before passing on to (what follows).” It seems clear so far that there was a continued belief in a period of time existing between Gen.1:1 and 1:2. Although none of these points taken individually carry overwhelming evidence, together they do require the truly serious student to further investigate the possibility of a gap. The one thing that seems evident is that those who held this view did not believe it needed to be defended. Instead, there seems to be various legends built around the knowledge of a gap......

However, due to time constraints, it is not possible for many students to take advantage of it” * “This offers hands-on work and real experience, and the two choices [volunteer decision for participating or not participating] make the whole class happy” * “I was able to get a feel for the marketing field in the experiential group” * “Experiential teams were “really” helpful” 4.

The Instructor’s Perspective While the Monmouth Entrepreneurial Studies Program is popular with students (see below), the instructor found that the classes are not particularly scalable to other instructors and a program expansion in its current form. Instructors for this type of program need a special commitment and relevant entrepreneurial experience. The instructor’s workload is considerably more than a class without the entrepreneurial component. A specific communication system needs to be......

Which factor is the most important factor in deciding price? * Based on the equation (without wholesaler variable), the coefficient for carat is 3873.15, which is the highest coefficient among the variables. Therefore, we can conclude that the carat size is the most influential factor on the price. The increase of carat size would increase the price of 3,873 USD. (t-value of carat is approximately 64 and p-value of carat is <0.0001, signifying that the carat size is a significant factor). 2. Is the price of the diamond ring proper? 　 | Observed Price (Y) | R2 | StErr of Estimate | Lowest value | Highest Value | With Wholesaler | 3003.83 | 0.97 | 203.85 | 2596.12 | 3411.54 | Without Wholesaler | 2491.49 | 0.94 | 290.99 | 1909.51 | 3073.47 | Wholesaler1 Equation | 2732.87 | 0.39 | 305.15 | 2122.55 | 3343.19 | * One wholesaler dominates the certain range of carat. Therefore, we can claim that there is a relationship between the wholesaler and the size of carat. * If we eliminate the influence of wholesaler on the regression equation, 3,100 USD is not within the 95% confidence interval range. (The price range is between 1909.51 and 3073.47 USD). However, if there is a wholesaler variable, the observed price increases to 3003.83 USD. In this...

Meek, and Eric T. Rapley ABSTRACT: The purpose of this paper is to provide a concise career guide for current and potential doctoral students in accounting and, in the process, help them gain a greater awareness of what it means to be an accounting professor. The guide can also be used by accounting faculty in doctoral programs as a starting point in mentoring their doctoral students. We begin with foundational guidance to help doctoral students better understand the “big picture” surrounding the academic accounting environment. We then provide speciﬁc research guidance and publishing guidance to help improve the probability of publication success. Actions are suggested that doctoral students and new faculty can take to help jump-start their academic careers. We ﬁnish with guidance regarding some important acronyms of special interest to doctoral students in accounting. Keywords: career guidance; doctoral students; research; publishing. INTRODUCTION igher education faces a severe, and growing, shortage of accounting professors. As a result, the job prospects for new accounting doctoral graduates are very good and are getting better. Starting salaries are increasing, but so are the......
