Float And Cash Management

The need to hold cash to take advantage of additional investment opportunities, such as bargain purchases. The need to hold cash as a safely margin to act as a financial reserve The need to hold cash to satisfy normal disbursement and collection activities associated with a firm's ongoing operations. We begin our analysis of working capital management by looking at how firms manage cash. The basic objective in cash management is to keep the investment in cash as low as possible while still...

Dividend Payout and Earnings Retention

As we have seen in various places, a firm's net income gets divided into two pieces. The first piece is cash dividends paid to stockholders. Whatever is left over is the addition to retained earnings. For example, from Table 3.3, Prafrock's net income was 363, of which 121 was paid out in dividends. If we express dividends paid as a percentage of net income, the result is the dividend payout ratio Dividend payout ratio Cash dividends Net income 121 363 33Va Retention ratio Addition to retained...

Aggregate growth estimates can be found at www.zacks.com research earnings. Notice that we calculated the change in the dividend on a year-to-year basis and then expressed the change as a percentage. Thus, in 2005, for example, the dividend rose from S 1. 10 to S1.20, for an increase of .10. This represents a .10 1.10 9.09 increase. If we average the four growth rates, the result is (9.09 + 12.50 + 3.70 + 10.71 ) 4 9 , so we could use this as an estimate for the expected growth rate, g. Notice...

Whats in a Ratio

Abraham Briloff, a well-known financial commentator, famously remarked that financial statements are like fine perfume to be sniffed but not swallowed. As you have probably figured out by now, his point is that information gleaned from financial statements and ratios and growth rates computed from that information should be taken with a grain of salt. For example, looking back at the beginning of the chapter, investors must really think that Ciena Corporation will have extraordinary growth....

[Residual Dividend Approach

Earlier, we noted that firms with higher dividend payouts will have to sell stock more often. As we have seen, such sales are not very common and they can be very expensive. Consistent with this, we will assume that the firm wishes to minimize the need to sell new equity. We will also assume that the firm wishes to maintain its current capital structure. If a firm wishes to avoid new equity sales, then it will have to rely on internally generated cash flow to finance new, positive NPV...

Summary Amp Gincliujsems

This chapter has introduced you to some of the basics of financial statements, taxes, and cash flow. In it we saw that 1. The book values on an accounting balance sheet can be very different from market values. The goal of financial management is to maximize the market value of the stock, not its book value. 2. Net income as it is computed on the income statement is not cash flow. A primary reason is that depreciation, a noncash expense, is deducted when net income is computed. 3. Marginal and...
