Risk Analysis on Investment Decision (Silicon Arts Inc)

...Running head: CAPITAL BUDGETING Risk Analysis on Investment Decision Risk Analysis on Investment Decision Silicon Arts, Incorporated (SAI) is a manufacturer of circuits that are used in the manufacture of electronic equipment items. During their initial years in operation, there was an increase in the industry followed by a 40% decline. In order to remain competitive and stay profitable, SAI controlled expenses. Current trends indicate the industry may be on the rise again. SAI wants to develop some new capital investment projects that are in line with their goals: increase their market share, and keep pace with new technology (University of Phoenix, 2007). Future Scenarios The first task in the simulation was to examine probable future scenarios that could potentially affect SAI cash flow with two projects, Dig-image and W-Comm. Part of SAI’s plans is their desire to earn $54 million in their first year by selling 400,000 units, however they first need to determine their working capital. “Working capital rises over the early years of the project as expansion occurs. However, all working capital is assumed to be recovered at the end, a common assumption in capital budgeting” (Ross, Westerfield, & Jaffey, 2005, p. 183). SAI is expecting growth will be 20% in the first three years and then decrease 10% annually in years 4 and 5. SAI is expecting increasing competition, decreasing prices, and a short lifespan of the technology that could be obsolete......

Case on Beyonce's Album as a Risk Investment

...Beyoncé’s risk investment | AbstractA case study which taps into the high risk investment the American singer Beyoncé took to produce her fifth album in a non-traditional way. Reine Kolle (瑞丽) Student ID: 1120150914 | Beyoncé’s risk investment | AbstractA case study which taps into the high risk investment the American singer Beyoncé took to produce her fifth album in a non-traditional way. Reine Kolle (瑞丽) Student ID: 1120150914 | Beyoncé’s Risky Investment Overview As part of our curriculum education we were asked to find a short case study that we thought to be of an interest in investments. Thus, this paper will discuss concisely the Harvard case study; written by Anita Elberse and Stacie Smith (2014), on the American singer Beyoncé and how much of a business gamble her project really was. The reason I find this case to be of interest is because of its depth into risky decision making and the uncertainty of expected results in investment. The approach of this case study is an analytical approach. This approach does not identify problems but it examines the case in order to understand what has happened and why. Key word: risk-return tradeoff Case study In December 2013, music superstar Beyoncé is about to surprise her fans with the release of her self-titled album. The team at her company Parkwood Entertainment, which general manager Lee Anne Callahan-Longo described as "a management, music, and production company that is owned and at the......

Investment Analysis

... Answers to Questions 1. It can be shown that the expected return function is a weighted average of the individual returns. In addition, it is shown that combining any portfolio with the risk-free asset, that the standard deviation of the combination is only a function of the weight for the risky asset portfolio. Therefore, since both the expected return and the variance are simple weighted averages, the combination will lie along a straight line. 2. Expected Rate of Return * F M * P * * B RFR *A E Expected Risk (( of return) The existence of a risk-free asset excludes the E-A segment of the efficient frontier because any point below A is dominated by the RFR. In fact, the entire efficient frontier below M is dominated by points on the RFR-M Line (combinations obtained by investing a part of the portfolio in the risk-free asset and the remainder in M), e.g., the point P dominates the previously efficient B because it has lower risk for the same level of return. As shown, M is at the point where the ray from RFR is tangent to the efficient frontier. The new efficient frontier thus becomes RFR-M-F. 3. Expected Rate ...
