4. What inventory method is used to value inventories? Does this method reflect current cost at year-end? The inventory method of FIFO(First In First Out) is used to value inventories. However, this cost is matched with the lower cost and market cost from both of them is applied to the compute of inventory
Outline the similarities and differences between the Single Index Model (SIM) and the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). Justify which of the two models makes a better assessment of return of a security (25 marks). To reduce a firm’s specific risk or residual risk a portfolio should have negative covariance or rather it should have no variance at all, for large portfolios however calculating variance requires greater and sophisticated computing power. As such, Index models greatly decrease the computations needed to calculate the optimum portfolio. The use of such Index models also eliminates illogical or rather absurd results.
After reviewing the income statement, I can notice Lucky Leotis that when completing your financial statement, you lacked in following the rules of GAAPS. For this reason, your monthly income was higher then it should have been. I have attached the corrected copy and will explain the errors that you have made. When you had recorded the amount of interest revenue, you lacked to recognize that you were supposed to state the amount of revenue applicable for only that period (monthly). You had recorded the value of interest that you had to pay for the investment for the whole year, $ 7800, rather than stating the amount for the 16 days when it was initially purchased which was $ 335.48.
There are a number of prominent financial themes that emerge from any detailed analysis of Lululemon. Some of these key themes are as follows: (a) Lululemon Athletica’s growth rate (as measured by revenue) is declining progressively, providing some evidence that the company is running up against market capacity in its current niche; (b) Lulu remains an efficient and profitable company, supporting the inference that the company’s slowing growth isn’t function of operational or financial weaknesses, but rather of a softening in demand associated with market saturation; and (c) Lululemon a retains the ability to spend and/or borrow its way to different growth strategies. An analysis of the previous 10 years of revenue growth data from Lululemon Athletica indicates a steady pattern of decline (Morningstar). There are two patterns visible in the revenue growth data for Lululemon. First revenue growth declined extremely quickly, and for two years, as a result of the economic crisis.
Dollar General profit margin comparison company ration analysis is lower than the others in 2007. As the data showed Dollar General Performance and profitability compared to the industry peers declined. The metrics to focus are on the internal aspects are sales per employee, net income per employee and operating cash flow per employee to understand why the decline in profits. On the external aspect, the important metrics are ROE, ROA, profit margin, asset turn over and working capital turn over, debt-to-equity ratio. This metric is a benchmark to understand the liquidity, solvency, and profitability of a company that facilitated the assessment of company
Also, it shows that prices for AAPL don’t diverge between November and January. 2. A. One put contract with a strike price of $165 will cost ($2.85*100) = $285. B. HPR = Strike Price – Stock Price – Put Price / Put Price HPR = (165 – 150 – 2.85) / 2.85 = 426.32% C. The put option’s return and share price are slightly inverse.
The effect of lidocaine differ from the effect of TTX is lidocaine’s effect is reversible and TTX’s effect is inreversible. The response at R2 after lidocaine application necessarily wouldn’t be zero because of the action potential. Some axons may be unaffected that cause a response to be greater than zero. Fewer action potentials are recorded at R2 when TTX is applied between R1 and R2 because TTX blocked the voltage gated channels in R2. Fewer action potentials recorded at R2 when lidocaine is applied between R1 and R2 because it blocked membrane potential and lidocaine’s effect is reversible.
In the discounted utility model, it is implicitly assumed that there is no satiation due to consumption that is carried over across time periods. Thus the utility of consumption in a period remains unaffected by the consumption in the previous period. So the assumption that the utility in each period is computed afresh may be reasonable if the time interval between two periods is relatively large. Thus the total utility is simply the sum of the discounted utilities. The problem automatically arises when the time interval between two periods is relatively small and there is a lingering effect of previous consumption on the experienced utility of the current consumption.
Walmart’s objective is to minimize the stock out rate thus reducing the amount of time taken to fill an order. The satisfaction of these objectives contributes to the company’s performance in operations management. When these measures are later evaluated, it is easier to implement the control measures in place. Walmart Company uses a number of metrics to assess its performance; comparable store sales it indicates the performance of the existing stores by measuring the growth in sales for such stores for a particular period over the corresponding period in the prior year, operating income growth greater than net sales growth, inventory growth less than net sales growth and return on average assets must be
they finds geographical region also one factor. The evidence from Eastern European economics proves that they receive greatest benefit while comparing to Asia and Americas. Author also add that African countries can’t take benefits and do not have statistically significant impact of remittance on economic
