Recommending a Short-Term Foreign Investment

Suppose the treasurer of your company finds out you are enrolled in BUS450 International Finance. Knowing this, your treasurer seeks your advice. Your company has extra cash reserves of $100,000,000 and needs to invest it for 6 months. The treasurer has heard that investing in foreign currencies for the short term might have a higher yield when compared to a short-term United States investment. Research the following:

· spot exchange rate of your selected currency relative to the US Dollar

· six-month forward exchange rate per the US Dollar.

Prepare a proposal to your treasurer that outlines your research and recommendation. Provide calculations where necessary to support your recommendation. Summarize your findings in a three- to five- page paper, not including title and references pages. Be sure to properly cite your resources using APA style.

pricing strategy

pricing strategy

  1.   pricing strategy. Suppose Navistar’s Canadian subsidiary sells 1,500 trucks monthly to the French affiliate at a transfer price of 527,000 per unit. Assume that the Canadian and French marginal tax rates on corporate income equal 45% and 50%, respectively. (16.1)

a. Suppose the transfer price can be set at any level between $25,000 and $30,000. At what transfer price will corporate taxes paid be minimized? Explain.

b. Suppose the French government imposes an ad valorem tariff of 15% on imported tractors. How would this tariff affect the optimal transfer pricing strategy?

c. If the transfer price of 527,000 is set in euros and the euro revalues by 5%, what will happen to the firm’s overall tax bill? Consider the tax consequences both with and without the 15% tariff.

d. Suppose the transfer price is increased from $27,000 to $30,000 and credit terms are extended from 90 days to 180 days. What are the fund-flow implications of these adjustments?

3. Suppose that DMR SA, located in Switzerland, sells $1 million worth of goods monthly to its affiliate DMR Gmbh, located in Germany. These sales are based on a unit transfer price of $100. Suppose the transfer price is raised to $130 at the same time that credit terms are lengthened from the current 30 days to 60 days. (16.3)

a. What is the net impact on cash flow for the first 90 days? Assume that the new credit terms apply only to new sales already booked but uncollected.

b. Assume that the tax rate is 25% in Switzerland and 50% in Germany and that revenues are taxed and costs deducted upon sale or purchase of goods, not upon collection. What is the impact on after-tax cash flows for the first 90 days?

time audit.

time audit.

time audit.  Each student will prepare a time audit. Choose either Module/Week 1 or Module/Week 2 of this course to complete your time audit. This will be difficult because it will require you to keep track of your time in 15-minute increments.

All it takes is a little discipline. You need not to stop in the middle of something to record your time – simply wait until you finish the activity to record the event and time spent. By all means, do not wait until the end of the day to fill out your sheets. That would somewhat diminish the point of the assignment, as the whole point is to record activities and times as close to the time period as possible.

Do not obsess with this assignment. Perfection is not required, only completion of this audit, recording the approximate time periods of daily activities, both typical and atypical. Again, only you and the professor will see your results (unless you wish to share with your classmates).

To complete the audit, do the following:

  1. You will audit how you use time for 5 consecutive work days, in 15-minute increments.
  2. Think about your typical day, and begin listing the kinds of activities you do each day. You may use Microsoft Word, Excel, or any other means by which to keep track of these activities.
  3. While recording approximate time periods is allowed, try to record the times as close to the time period each occurred.
  4. Complete the sheets for morning, afternoon, and evening, and be sure to include any comments or observations.
  5. At the end of each day, complete a summary of all of the day’s activities.
  6. Do this each day, then submit all 5 days in 1 submission.

ethical dilemma

ethical dilemma

ethical dilemma.  1. Format a. Use Microsoft Word, 12 point font, single spacing. b. Use the format demonstrated in the sample paper called “Excerpts from A papers ..” provided under Writing Resources in Blackboard for Assignments 2 through 4. This format incorporates the use of headers that distinguish the different areas of thought within the memo. Additionally, for Assignments 1 you may incorporate headers if necessary to more effectively convey your ideas. c. Where using headers in Assignments 2 through 4, you must include these: 1. Facts 2. Issue 3. Analysis (note- this is where you may want to use additional headers to further organize your thoughts) 4. Recommendation d. Suggested Paper Length – these are ranges, not absolutes 1. Assignment 1 should be between 500 and 600 words; 2. Assignments 2 and 3 should be between 750 and 1000 words; 3. Assignment 4 should be between 1400 and 2000 words. e. The purpose of the guide is to help you understand whether you have thought deeply enough about the topic. Your grade does not depend on the number of words written. However, your grade will be affected by whether or not you have fully analyzed the issue and fully supported your conclusion/decision. If you find that you are significantly over this range of words, you should edit your paper so that your ideas and words are conveyed in the most concise manner. This does not mean eliminating key arguments. It just means editing your wording so that it is more concisely written. f. Inside your document – DO NOT include any personal information inside your document (such as name, CougarNet ID, etc). We will not remove this information before submitting it for assessment.

ethical dilemma

1. Task Think of an ethical dilemma/issue that you experienced recently – one in which you had to decide whether one choice or another was the more ethical. This can be a situation you experienced at work, at home, or elsewhere. First, briefly describe the situation and the decision you made. This should take up no more than approximately one-third of your paper. Second, FULLY discuss your rationale for the decision. The most important part of this paper is that you fully support your decision (i.e., provide a detailed explanation for your decision). This section of the paper should consist of about two-thirds of your paper. You should review the online lectures on writing and critical thinking (and the sample papers) before beginning the assignment.
