...solution SOLUTIONS TO EXERCISES AND CASES For FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS AND SECURITY VALUATION Stephen H. Penman Fifth Edition CHAPTER ONE Introduction to Investing and Valuation Concept Questions C1.1. Fundamental risk arises from the inherent risk in the business – from sales revenue falling or expenses rising unexpectedly, for example. Price risk is the risk of prices deviating from fundamental value. Prices are subject to fundamental risk, but can move away from fundamental value, irrespective of outcomes in the fundamentals. When an investor buys a stock, she takes on fundamental risk – the stock price could drop because the firm’s operations don’t meet expectations – but she also runs the (price) risk of buying a stock that is overpriced or selling a stock that is underpriced. Chapter 19 elaborates and Figure 19.5 (in Chapter 19) gives a display. C1.2. A beta technology measures the risk of an investment and the required return that the risk requires. The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is a beta technology; is measures risk (beta) and the required return for the beta. An alpha technology involves techniques that identify mispriced stocks than can earn a return in excess of the required return (an alpha return). See Box 1.1.

...associated logistics services. (Brambles, 2013) This report aims to evaluate Brambles' overall financial performance, prospect and provide recommendations on holding or selling Brambles' share finally. The accounting analysis assesses the influence that may be exerted by Brambles accounting policies through analyzing three aspects of key accounting policies, accounting flexibility and the quality of disclosure. The financial analysis illustrates that the financial profitability of Brambles is relatively favorable due to the high-level of ROE and ROA in the past five years. In addition, the highest financial leverage in Brambles result in the increased profits were insufficient to offset the increment in cash capital expenditure. Therefore, Brambles' efficiency and liquidity in investment management may induce risk in the future. The valuation analysis combines the discounted cash flow model, discounted residual income model and sensitivity analysis. The range of estimated share price is within AUD$8.7-$16.62. The current market share price is AUD$9.17.

...the company’s performance. However, the quality of the results presented is equally important. That is, the earnings reported must be reflective of the future earnings capacity of the company. This will enable investors to understand the core earnings of the firm and help in forecasting the performance of the company. If earnings is of a poor quality, it implies that the earnings are not a good indicator of the company’s performance. (Penman, 2013) The Australian corporate environment receives support from legislation and common law to ensure companies are compliant and providing timely and accurate financial information to the users. Conover, et. Al. (2008) found that common law countries such as Australia had less incidents of late filing and less days to file its annual reports, when compared with code law countries. HVN’s annual reports were analysed and the financial statements were reformatted to provide a better understanding of the core earnings. In examining the quality of HVN’s accounting reports, it is important to understand the business and strategy of HVN, as explained in the previous section. HVN’s resurgence in 2013-14 after a gradual drop in profits from 2010 through 2013, is an indicator of management’s successful changes in strategy.___________________ (CAN INSERT REASONINGS HERE BASED ON SECTION 1- Business Strategy) Key Items Looked At * Detecting Manipulation in Revenue Description | | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | ('000) | Net Sales |......

...FEMSA 2007: THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS IMPACT OF DIFFERENCES IN MEXICAN AND US GAAP 1. Compute the following ratios for 2007 using the financial statements prepared using Mexican FRS and expressed in pesos. [Assume the weighted average number of shares outstanding is 17,891,000] a. Current Ratio: Current assets/Current liabilities b. Inventory Turnover: Cost of Goods Sold/Average Inventory c. Profit Margin on Sales: Net Income/Net Sales d. Debt to Assets Ratio: Total Liabilities/Total Assets e. Book Value per Share: Common Stockholders’ Equity/Outstanding Shares 2. Compute the same ratios listed in 1 using the amounts expressed in US$. What are the implications for international financial statement analysis? The importance for credit analysts to consider in reviewing Mexican financial statements is because the net effect of inflation accounting will be to produce financial statements that will not have the conservative bias of statements produced under U.S. GAAP. For example, some of the differences will show on the balance sheet where in Mexican statements all non-monetary assets are restated at current value and the disclosure requirements on Mexican statements are not as comprehensive as in the U.S. When considering the notes to the financial statements in Mexico these notes may contain information about contingent liabilities, debt maturities, and loan covenants - information of vital importance to determining the......
