...ll Why Does a Stock's Price Rise or Fall? Introduction Watching the ups and downs of stock prices can be enough to make you seasick. If you own stocks, you've undoubtedly followed their prices with a feeling of either satisfaction or disappointment, depending on how your investments have done. Short-term swings can be bewildering, and sometimes it seems as though stock prices follow a logic all their own. Even so, it is possible to break down stock performance in ways that help distinguish solid growth from inflated expectations. Case Study in Rising Prices: Wal-Mart A stock's price is determined by its fundamentals (how the company has actually performed) combined with its valuation (how much the market is willing to pay for that performance and the promise of future growth). Similarly, when a stock's price goes up, that rise comes from either (1) growth in the underlying business or (2) an increase in the stock's valuation, as the market becomes more optimistic about the company's future. As an illustration of these two drivers of stock performance, consider the history of Wal-Mart WMT. In the 1970s and 1980s, Wal-Mart was the quintessential growth stock. It was profitable, with returns on equity consistently above 20%. Year after year, its revenue and earnings grew by more than 25%, often by more than 30%, as it opened new stores all over the country. As a result of this consistent growth, the annualized return of Wal-Mart's stock from 1970 to 1990......

Regression Analysis for Determining the Price of Alcan Stock

...Regression Analysis for Determining the Price of Alcan Stock [pic] Jason Scott May 1, 2006 Introduction In this project, we have developed a model using stepwise regression to predict the price of Alcan’s stock, based on the impact of eight independent variables on the price of Alcan’s stock. The company’s stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol AL. Of the eight variables we will be looking at, we are most interested in the impact that the price of aluminum has on Alcan’s stock. Alcan is the second largest producer of aluminum in the world, and may be one of the purest plays on aluminum, given that Alcan spent the mid 1990’s spinning off all operations not involved with the production of aluminum. If any company would reflect the impact of the change in aluminum prices, it would be Alcan. Additionally, we have a keen interest in this field as both of us are employees of a company recently spun-off from Alcan. The eight independent variables that we chose for our analysis, and our reasons for choosing them, are detailed below. Definition of Variables Dependant Variable Alcan (ALCAN) The dependent variable for our model is the monthly stock price of Alcan. Alcan is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol AL. The stock price is collected daily and these daily numbers are averaged together to give one monthly value. We have collected the......

...Methods for price analysis performed in several other methods. Such as, comparison of proposed prices in received in response to the solicitation, however this method of comparing offered prices and arrange based on bid prices. As a general rule, we should expect offered price to almost close but not the same, if price competition has been occurred. The range of the prices will add confidence that the lowest price offered is reasonable. Moreover, people have to be careful when they are using comparison with other prices offered as the price analysis method. The government is required to point out apparent mistakes to offerors if it has reasonable basis to suspect they are present. This requirement does not obligate the government to conduct a painstaking examination of every offer to every detail. In addition, they are basically consequences of their own error. For instance, it is deliberately take advantage of a known or suspected mistake to entice into the contract which is actually underpriced. Mostly, comparison of competitive bids with each other is the best of all the price analysis techniques when conditions are right for use. There must be at least two independent offers. Comparison to prior prices this method is one of the most method used for government price analysis. It is useful when agency had a history of contracting for same product of the service.

Impact of Dividend on Stock Price

...“IMPACT OF DIVIDEND ON STOCK PRICES” ABSTRACT The project aims to establish the impact of dividend on market price of a share. This has been done for individual companies in Steel sector. After studying the basic concepts of dividends and dividend policy I am able to get a proper perspective of the requirements of the project and also gain a better understanding of the results obtained. I have looked to find the relation between pre dividend price change and the dividend using regression analysis. Similarly, I have analyzed the relation between the post dividend price change and the dividend. It is a matter of fact that dividends are declared by a company primarily to generate capital and also at certain times to maintain the market sentiment. It is in the best interests of the company to maximize the market value of its share and companies use dividend as a tool to maintain their corporate image. However, the degree of correlation between the dividend and the market price is low which implies that several other internal and external factors affect the market value of shares. To gain a holistic picture, I also did a comparative study of two peers in a sector (steel)to better understand how the specific requirements of each sector also impact the dividend policy of a company. The conclusions derived from the analysis performed further consolidated theoretical knowledge and deviations were better understood. SYNOPSIS “Impact......

...government and monetary policy has a minimal effect on Procter & Gamble. Interest rate cuts may help PG, but the economic turn down, will hurt. Other economic factors play a larger role; an increase in inflation can cause consumers to spend their money on generic brands versus PG name brands. The company is also exposed to market risk through interest rate changes, and foreign exchange rates. If not managed property the company could lose billions. To safeguard against sudden exchange rates PG uses the forward contract option that provides a fixed exchange rate between the two currencies. Overall PG produces need based products and not luxury items, which will keep the company in good standings through most economic down falls. An industry analysis has shown Procter & Gamble’s top competitors; in the personal product industry are Kimberly Clark, Elizabeth Arden, Colgate Palmolive and Avon. PG is a mature saturated company and finds it difficult to expand market share, for a company of its size. To deal with market share expansion and competition PG focuses on cost reduction through a decrease in promotions, coupons and plans to advertise heavily. PG recently teamed with Coke, Wrigley, and Gillett and has the available cash flow to make several businesses investments such as acquisitions and merger, and is not afraid of this business venture.

Lognormal Stock-Price Models

...sense of . . . LogNormal stock-price models in Exams MFE/3 and C/4 James W. Daniel Austin Actuarial Seminars http://www.actuarialseminars.com June 26, 2008 c Copyright 2007 by James W. Daniel; reproduction in whole or in part without the express permission of the author is forbidden. Foreword This document briefly describes the ideas behind the use of LogNormal models for stock prices in some of the material for Exams MFE and C of the Society of Actuaries and Exams 3 and 4 of the Casualty Actuarial Society. Not a traditional exam-prep study manual, it concentrates on explaining key ideas so that you can then understand the details presented in the textbooks or study manuals. It can be especially useful to anyone taking Exam C/4 without having studied the material for Exam MFE/3. 2 Chapter 1 LogNormal stock-price models 1.1 Why LogNormal models? Why learn about and use LogNormal models for stock prices? I could answer “Because it’s on the exam syllabi” or “Why not?”, but that wouldn’t be helpful. Instead, I’ll take a little space to motivate this. Suppose that the price of a stock or other asset at time 0 is known to be S(0) and we want to model its future price S(10) at time 10—note that some texts use the notation S0 and S10 instead. Let’s break the time interval from 0 to 10 into 10,000 pieces of length 0.001, and let’s let Sk stand for S(0.001k), the price at time 0.001k. I know the price S0 = S(0) and want to model the price S10000 = S(10). I can......

Predictability of Stock Price on Nigeria Stock Exchange

...predictability CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY The performance of an economy is dependent largely on the efficient performance of its financial markets, since they facilitate the financing of productive activity and hence national output and economic growth. In this research report, the key roles and function of the financial markets are highlighted with the thrust of the discussion on the core issue of how the market works; directly and indirectly. One of the most important factors for rapid economic development is the effective mobilization and allocation of scarce resources within an economy. These resources can be real or financial, but they are scarce and command a price. The establishment of effective and efficient channel for the mobilization and allocation of scarce financial resources is therefore essential. The financial market, comprising of the money and capital markets, occupies an important place in most economies of the world. The primary function of a financial market is to enable funds to be sufficiently allocated from the surplus units of the economy to the deficit units for productive investment. The greater the transmission efficiency is, the higher the rate of growth of the economy (Olowe, 1997). The money market trades only in securities or debt instruments maturing in less than twelve months, while in the capital market, longer term debts as well as equity instruments are traded. The complementarity between money......

Relationship Between Stock Price and Futures

...The relationship between stock prices and exchange rates in China Mengyuan Chen Illinois Wesleyan University Dec 10, 2012 Abstract This paper uses the data of RMB exchange rates and stock market prices in China from 1994 to 2011 to estimate the relationship between stock prices and exchange rates. There are two major theories concerning the relationship. According to the portfolio balance effect, these two variables should be negatively related; in addition, according to the international trading effect theory, these two variables should be positively related. The linear regression model is adopted to observe the various relationships between stock and foreign exchange markets. The results confirmed my hypothesis, which indicates that the international trading effect is more dominant, thus the net effect is a positive causal relationship from exchange rates to stock prices. I. Introduction Within the emerging Chinese market, China now has more open policies and advanced financial market instruments to promote globalization. For example, China started to allow the RMB to float within a larger daily range in 2005 and brought derivative options into the stock market. These significant steps all suggest that China is beginning to face a new economic condition. For instance, the challenging policy making of RMB exchange rate is one. Exchange rates and stock prices are both key indicators of the economy and financial markets. So the relationship between those two becomes......
