In the Capital Asset Pricing Model, the market risk premium is estimated over a long period of time because: (Points : 1) more data is always better than less. a longer holding period gives a more
reliable estimate because it is, in effect, a larger sample size. almost all investors hold stocks for many years, so it matches their investment horizon. historical returns are the best indicators of future returns.
My objective in writing this survey is to provide an overview of the work that has been done in an important area of financial markets research—explaining the behavior of common stock returns. [ I have tried to make this survey as complete as possible, without getting bogged down in a lot of technical details. Since this area of research has been very active for the past several years,
describing all of the work that has been done is not feasible. I have tried to include the most important research in my discussion, but in doing so, I have left out some very good papers. What follows is my attempt to adequately discuss all the main ideas in as concise a manner as possible. ]

Weegy: July 02 2012| Filed Under » Balance Sheet, Financial Statements, Preferred Shares For stock investors that favor companies with good fundamentals, a "strong" balance sheet is an important consideration for investing in a company's stock. [ The strength of a company's balance sheet can be evaluated by three broad categories of investment-quality measurements: working capital adequacy, asset performance and capital structure. In this article, we'll look at evaluating balance sheet strength based on the composition of a company's capital structure. A company's capitalization (not to be confused with market capitalization) describes the composition of a company's permanent or long-term capital, which consists of a combination of debt and equity.

A benefit of debt financing is that: (Points : 1) not making scheduled debt payments can lead to bankruptcy. interest paid on debt is tax-deductible. loans must be repaid. debt magnifies bad outcomes (i.e., makes earnings more variable).
Weegy: "A benefit of debt financing is that: (Points : 1) not making scheduled debt payments can lead to bankruptcy. interest paid on debt is tax-deductible. loans must be repaid. [ debt magnifies bad outcomes (i.e., makes earnings more variable)." answer: Debt is borrowing money from an outside source with the promise to return the principal, in addition to an agreed-upon level of interest. Although the term tends to have a negative connotation, startup companies often turn to debt to finance their operations. In fact, even the healthiest of corporate balance sheets will include some level of debt. In finance, debt is also referred to as “leverage.” The most popular source for debt financing is the bank, but debt can also be issued by a private company or even a friend or family member. Advantages to Debt Financing Maintain ownership: When you borrow from the bank or another lender, you are obligated to make the agreed-upon payments on time. But that is the end of your obligation to the lender. You can choose to run your business however you choose without outside interference. Tax deductions: This is a huge attraction for debt financing. In most cases, the principal and interest payments on a business loan are classified as business expenses, and thus can be deducted from your business income taxes. It helps to think of the government as a “partner” in your business, with a 30 percent ownership stake (or whatever your business tax rate is). If you can cut the government out of the equation, then it’s beneficial to your business. Lower interest rate: Furthermore, you should analyze the impact of tax deductions on the bank interest rate. If the bank is charging you 10 percent for your loan, and the government taxes you at 30 percent, then there is an advantage to taking a loan you can deduct. Take 10 percent and multiply it by (1-tax rate), in this case it’s: 10 percent times (1-30 percent), which equals 7 percent. After your tax deductions, you’ll be paying ... (More)
