...The investor is aware of the risks involved and may be willing to invest in these bonds if there is an attractive coupon rate or high yield-to-maturity. Convertible bonds give the investor the option to convert the bonds into shares of common stock. The conditions, time frame, and price must all be set down at the time the bonds are issued. Risk Tolerance and the Security of Bonds Bonds are favored by investors seeking current income. Some of these investors are willing to take more investment risk to get higher returns than others. Depending upon your level of risk tolerance, you may choose bonds that are unsecured to obtain higher current income. Conversely, you may not be able to take much risk with your income. In this case, you would look for bonds that are backed by more than the good faith and credit of the issuers. As a bond investor, you should become familiar with the different ways in which bonds are secured.

...covariance between shares, so that I can know if the share is good or not. If the covariance is positive, then it means the share is bad, when the covariance is +1, we never select this share; if the covariance is negative, then it means the share is good, when it equals to -1, we must select the share. I am using arbitrage pricing theory because there are many factors that could influence the fair return, including macroeconomic index such as GDP surprise, inflation surprise, investors’ investment trend etc. APT theory takes those factors into account then multiplies each factor’s sensitivity. The formula is: APT return = [E(r) +( F1*F1Beta +F2*F2Beta+F3*F3Beta)]+ ei Sharpe measure tells how well the return of an asset compensates the investor for the risk taken. When the result is positive, it means that the increasing rate excess risk free rate so is good to investment. When the result is negative, it means that the increasing rate is lower than risk free rate. It’s better to investment in treasury bills. Treynor measure gives excess return per unit of risk. It estimates when the risk increases per unit, how much the return is moving. When Tp is positive, the higher the result is, the higher the risk premium is, so it means the better the performance of this asset/portfolio is. When the result is negative, there is no meaning of ranking. Jensen’s alpha is similar to CAPM, Jensen’s measure is the portfolio’s alpha value. When the result is bigger than......

...CHAPTER 1 THE INVESTMENT SETTING Answers to Questions 1. When an individual’s current money income exceeds his current consumption desires, he saves the excess. Rather than keep these savings in his possession, the individual may consider it worthwhile to forego immediate possession of the money for a larger future amount of consumption. This trade-off of present consumption for a higher level of future consumption is the essence of investment. An investment is the current commitment of funds for a period of time in order to derive a future flow of funds that will compensate the investor for the time value of money, the expected rate of inflation over the life of the investment, and provide a premium for the uncertainty associated with this future flow of funds. 2. Students in general tend to be borrowers because they are typically not employed so have no income, but obviously consume and have expenses. The usual intent is to invest the money borrowed in order to increase their future income stream from employment - i.e., students expect to receive a better job and higher income due to their investment in education. 3. In the 20-30 year segment an individual would tend to be a net borrower since he is in a relatively low-income bracket and has several expenditures - automobile, durable goods, etc. In the 30-40 segment again the individual would likely dissave, or borrow, since his expenditures would increase with the advent of family life, and......

...Investment Memorandum FIN 3300 Step 1: Asset Allocation From the forecast provided by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Federal Reserve the economy is growing. According to the Federal Reserve, policy makers have raised the new forecast to 3.4 up to 3.9 percent growth in output and services. Real GDP is projected to increase by 3.1% this year and by 2.8% next year due to the continued strong growth in business, investment, and a modest increase in consumer spending. This also will reflect the impact of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance, Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. These four components not only will provide a short-term boost to the economy by reducing some taxes but also extend unemployment benefits. Inflation will remain very low in 2011 and 2012 and will average no more than 2.0% a year between 2013 and 2016. With job creation, the unemployment rate will gradually fall to 9.2% in the fourth quarter of 2011. Due to the current growth of the economy, low inflation rates, and a growing GDP, the majority of our investments will be allocated in stocks or higher risk securities that could potentially provide a higher yield. Therefore we are taking a Bullish strategy because we expect the underlying stock price to move upwards. We want higher expected returns, so we are willing to pay the price in terms of accepting higher investment risk. With the economic forecast reflecting a brighter growth prospectus this year, our......

Lukoil: Trade Strategy at a Privatized Exporter

...Assignment 2 Lukoil: Trade Strategy at a Privatized Exporter Word Count: 1946 Introduction Over the past decade, Russia has witnessed year after year of significant growth in terms of its GDP. The vast majority of this growth can be attributed to Russia’s most valuable natural resource, Crude Oil. Overall, the oil industry accounts for a staggering 25% of Russia’s total GDP, as well as totaling 40% of all exports leaving its borders (Poussenkova, 2010). Lukoil, Russia’s largest oil company came about in 1991, when the then state owned oil monopoly was dismantled (Firlej, 2009). Today Lukoil accounts for roughly 19% of all oil production in Russia with profits reaching $108 Billion in 2008. Despite tremendous success in recent times for Russian oil exports, the state now looks to offset the risks associated with both heavily fluctuating oil prices as well as its enormous dependence upon oil exports for the well being of the nation. Because of this, companies such as Lukoil are now engaging in foreign investment to reduce the effects of fluctuating oil prices, political uncertainty as well as other risks related with their position (Firlej, 2009). This paper will discuss various aspects of Russia’s position as an oil exporter as well as various risks that may be faced in the near future. Theories of Trade When talking about Russia’s global position as an oil exporter, it is best to use various trade theories to help explain the situation. Firstly, it......
