Capital-structure;Business & Finance


Capital-structure can be a mixture of a firm’s long-term debt, short-term debt, common equity and preferred equity.

Select a publicly held company and analyze its Capital-structure, applying the theories and principles found in Chapter 15 of the text.

The structure of your research paper should include:

● A preview of Capital-structure issues

● Business and financial risks

● Modigliani and Miller’s [MM] Capital-structure theory

● Criticisms of the MM model and assumptions

● Capital-structure evidence and implications

● Estimating the firm’s optimal Capital-structure

A firm’s optimal Capital-structure is that mix of debt and equity that maximizes the stock price.

At any point in time, management has a specific target in mind, presumably the optimal one, though this target may change over time.

For example, financial management may choose a 50% equity financing [stock] and 50% debt [bond] financing.

Several factors influence a firm’s capital structure, including:

● Business risk

● Tax position

● The need for financial flexibility

● Managerial conservatives

● Growth opportunities

Business risk is the riskiness inherent in the firm’s operations if it uses no debt.

Margin Accounts; Finance Paper

Research Margin Accounts

Write a 2-3 page paper (not including the cover page or a reference page) on:

  • What is a margin account?
  • Why would investors use one?
  • What are the possible downsides to buying/selling securities on margin?

A minimum of two properly cited references are required, with at least one being from an outside source you find by searching the Internet.

A margin account lets an investor borrow money from a broker to purchase securities up to certain limits.

For example, an investor with $2,500 in a margin account wants to buy Company A’s stock for $5 per share.

The customer could use additional margin funds of $2,500 supplied by the broker to purchase $5,000 of Company A’s stock, or 1,000 shares.

If the stock appreciates to $10 per share, the investor can sell his shares for $10,000.

If he does so, after repaying the broker’s $2,500, he will have profited $7,500, assuming no other costs.

In reality, the investor will also have to pay interest on the margin lent to him by the broker, as well as other trading costs, so his profit will be less.
