When I call customer service for my bank account and phone bill, I cannot reach the operator or customer representatives directly. I have to go through several steps to finally reach the operator choice. Sometimes, the instruction of the automated voice is unclear. It is not unusual for me to wrongly go back to the initial menu and to restart different options to reach the customer representatives. 5.

...Corporation are the three ways a business is organized. In this report the one will get an overview of which business organization would be the right fit to ensure business success. All Four One, One Does None A product to put an end to all products, a product that any inventor would love to put on the shelves of as many stores as possible and immediately begin raking in the cash; just a dream I believe all inventors imagine. Too bad it’s not that simple. Making the decision of business organization is the beginning process. Which direction do I go in? Sole Proprietorship, Partnership or Corporation? Every organization has its advantages and disadvantages. When considering the Sole Proprietorship, I think about the positive aspects of it. Sole Proprietorship allows me to have complete control over my product and or business. It also gives me the opportunity to sale or transfer my product or business at my own choosing. On top of that, if deciding to form a Sole Proprietorship, I would encounter lesser cost when it comes to the legal aspect. With all advantages there come disadvantages. While thinking if Sole Proprietorship is the way to go, I have to consider the major fact that if I decide on this particular business organization every decision and responsibility including finances fall solely on me. Partnership is also a choice that allows me the advantages of funding, which is huge. Having a partnership makes funding to get my business or product......

...through diversification. By owning stocks in different companies and in different industries, as well as by owning other types of securities such as Treasuries and municipal securities, investors will be less affected by an event or decision that has a strong impact on one company, industry or investment type. Examples of unsystematic risk include a new competitor, a regulatory change, a management change and a product recall. | | Investopedia explains 'Unsystematic Risk'For example, the risk that airline industry employees will go on strike, and airline stock prices will suffer as a result, is considered to be unsystematic risk. This risk primarily affects the airline industry, airline companies and the companies with whom the airlines do business. It does not affect the entire market system, so it is an “unsystematic” or “nonsystematic” risk. An investor who owned nothing but airline stocks would face a high level of unsystematic risk. By diversifying his or her portfolio with unrelated holdings, such as health-care stocks and retail stocks, the investor would face less unsystematic risk. However, even a portfolio of well-diversified assets cannot escape all risk. It will still be exposed to systematic risk, which is the uncertainty that faces the market as a whole. Even staying out of the market completely will not take an investor’s risk down to zero, because he or she would still face risks such as losing money from inflation and not having enough assets to......

...the cost of that capital; see Corporate finance: working capital management. This amount can be determined by making adjustments to GAAP accounting. There are potentially over 160 adjustments that could be made but in practice only five or seven key ones are made, depending on the company and the industry it competes in. NOPAT is profits derived from a company’s operations after cash taxes but before financing costs and non-cash bookkeeping entries. It is the total pool of profits available to provide a cash return to those who provide capital to the firm. Capital is the amount of cash invested in the business, net of depreciation. It can be calculated as the sum of interest-bearing debt and equity or as the sum of net assets less non-interest-bearing current liabilities (NIBCLs). The capital charge is the cash flow required to compensate investors for the riskiness of the business given the amount of economic capital invested. The cost of capital is the minimum rate of return on capital required to compensate investors (debt and equity) for bearing risk, their opportunity cost. Another perspective on EVA can be gained by looking at a firm’s return on net assets (RONA). RONA is a ratio that is calculated by dividing a firm’s NOPAT by the amount of capital it employs (RONA = NOPAT/Capital) after making the necessary adjustments of the data reported by a conventional financial accounting system. EVA = (RONA – required minimum return) × net investments. If RONA is above the......
