Question 1=

“Financial Measurements” Please respond to the following:

  • From the first e-Activity, determine the financial measure you believe to be the most important and the one that is least important to potential investors. Support your answer. Compare and contrast the two financial measures you selected according to the needs of hypothetical investors.
  • Consider the needs of investors and the needs of business owners. Examine how investors’ use of financial ratios might differ from owners’ use of financial ratios. Determine ways that their use of financial ratios might be similar.

Question 2=

  • From the first e-Activity, determine the financial measure you believe to be the most important and the one that is least important to potential investors. Support your answer. Compare and contrast the two financial measures you selected according to the needs of hypothetical investors.

I think the most important financial measure to potential investors is the revenue in sales while the least important is the amount of other people buying shares in the stock market. While selling share in the stock market is great and can lead the company to huge opportunities, financial investors will not be so please unless the numbers of the company are high. The cost to make the product compared to the price it sells for and how much profit comes from that is the most important to these investors because they want to make sure they get their money back plus interest. 

 

  • Consider the needs of investors and the needs of business owners. Examine how investors’ use of financial ratios might differ from owners’ use of financial ratios. Determine ways that their use of financial ratios might be similar.

When Investors look at financial ratios they are more experienced and they can tell from the numbers where the company started to where they are going. Investors want to see the number increase, the more it increases the more likely they are to invest, this reassures them that they will receive their money back with interest or what ever deal they made with the owner. 

 

Business owners do not look this closely and sometimes that can throw a business off, which is why a business plan with the financial segment should be throughly worked out, especially in case of failure. Business owners looks for their profits, what they will be making after paying all of their bills and inventory, they often look for how life will look in a couple of years and so on.

 

E-ACTIVITY=

  • Go to the Hershey’s Website and visit the page for its financial statements, located here. View one of the company’s quarterly or annual reports, paying special attention to the financial information presented in the document. Consider what information would be most important to you if you were a potential investor. Be prepared to discuss.
  • Watch the video titled, “Elevator Pitch”, (2 m 14 s), located in your course shell (Week 9). Be prepared to discuss.

Question 3=

“Seeking Investor Funding” Please respond to the following:

  • From the second e-Activity, determine and describe the key points you would make in an investor’s presentation to the following audiences: bankers, angel investors, VC partners, suppliers, and potential key employees. Determine which audience might prove to be the most difficult. Support your answer.
  • Consider the five different audiences to seek funding from: bankers, angel investors, VC partners, suppliers, and potential key employees. Rank these audiences from one to five, according to the order in which you would seek funding from each. Support your answer with an explanation of the factors that you used to determine the order of the five audiences on the list.

Question 4=

I believe that the key points that should be presented to investors are sales reports, graphs, production costs, and future projections. Sales reports are important because they show perspective investors how much money the business has been making. Production costs would include creating the product and buying the ingredients that are necessary to create the product. Future projections would show where you as a business owner would expect the business to be in the next 2-5 years. All of the for mentioned key point are important because they could be used to draw in investors, suppliers, and/or employees.

1.) Bankers 2.) Suppliers 3.) Angel investors 4.) VC partners 5.) Potential key employees.

I put them in this order according to what I could deal with as a business owner. I could deal with bankers much easier because with bankers it is all business there are no personal feelings involved and it is very simple. They loan money and the person that the money is loaned to pays the banker back what they owe. It would be good to have a good working relationship with suppliers because as a business owner I may need to work with them again in the future and both parties would benefit. Angel investors are third because they can become very involved in the business that they invest in. VC’s are fourth because they are in direct competition with angle investors. Lastly, I would least of all want to take funding from potential employees. The key word is employees they are supposed to work for me and if they help fund my business then they would be more than employees.

Microeconomics analysis | Economics homework help

 

Microeconomics Analysis “Why are things the way they are?”

General Guidelines

  1. Do not research this analysis online. This is not a research paper. This is an application of economics to something that puzzles you. Any research you do should support your logic. 
  2. If you use statistics or laws or rules, please cite the source. 
  3. This is a thought project with your opinions supported by economics.
  4. There is possibly no good answer for your question or possibly multiple answers. If there are multiple answers, pick one concept and explain it well. It is better to explain one idea well than to explain multiple ideas poorly. 

Project Format/Delivery

Pick one of the two methods for your project analysis

A. paper based project analysis

  1. There is no page minimum, but there is a maximum. We’re not looking for quantity but quality! Don’t ask “how many pages should the analysis be?” Our response will be “write until your question is answered but don’t write more than 5 pages” 
  2. Concise and clear language should be your goal. Fluffed up analysis will be downgraded. Just answer your question! There is no need to provide filler to make your pages longer. 
  3. Citations. You can write a proper reference page or you could make it easy and use footnotes.

B. creative, non-paper based project analysis

You may instead do your project as a video, PowerPoint presentation, song, short movie, animation, audio recording, modern dance … or any other creative method that demonstrates your knowledge of the topic and the application. 

There is no limit for length/time but do keep it reasonable. For video/audio, over 60 minutes is likely too long and under 3 minutes is likely too short. For short stories, any length is fine. 

If you take a creative approach for this project and run short of time, talk to me and we can likely extend your due date. It is better to turn your work in late and be proud of it than to turn it in ontime with the knowledge that you could have done better. 

Explain in detail the processes of a job analysis then explain why
