S&P Etfs: Arbitrage Opportunities And Market Forecasting, Steven Dolvin 2009 Butler University

S&P Etfs: Arbitrage Opportunities And Market Forecasting, Steven Dolvin

Steven D. Dolvin

The article examines the pricing differences between two S&P 500 ETFs (ticker symbols SPY and IVV) and the underlying stock index. The author finds that, on average, both ETFs trade at a premium relative to the S&P 500; however, the level of the daily premium (and, on occasion, discount) varies between the two securities, which creates the opportunity for arbitrage. Since the passage of Regulation NMS in mid-2005, the pricing differences, as expected, have declined, implying that any current/future arbitrage opportunity will be confined to periods of high market volatility, such as 2008. Beyond issues related to arbitrage, the author finds that the relative pricing of the ETFs also provides a valuable signal of future (particularly next day) market activity. Thus, he suggests that active traders and longer-term ...

The Edge Of Legitimacy: Voluntary Social And Environmental Reporting In Rothmans' 1956-1999 Annual Reports, Matthew Tilling, Carol Tilt

Matthew Tilling

disclosures made in the annual reports of Rothmans Ltd between the years of 1955 and 1999. The first

resource-based approach to testing the theory.
Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative and quantitative approach to analysing annual
report disclosures is presented, and this is one of the few studies to operationalise the variables under
study as measures ...


Placing William Forster Lloyd In Context, Gregory Moore, Michael White 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Placing William Forster Lloyd In Context, Gregory Moore, Michael White

Gregory Moore

There are few historical records extant relating to William Forster Lloyd
(1794–1852). It is known that he was the second surviving son of Thomas
Lloyd, who was a rector of Aston-sub-Edge, Gloucestershire, but who
actually resided at various villages immediately outside West Wycombe,
Buckinghamshire, before becoming a private tutor of some note (and some
calling prior to the rise of the public schools) at nearby Peterley House,
Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. William F. Lloyd’s elder brother was
Charles Lloyd (1784–1829), a tutor in mathematics at Christ Church,
Oxford, and, through his influence over Sir Robert Peel (who he ...


Placing Donald Winch In Context: An Essay On Wealth And Life [Book Review], Gregory Moore 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Placing Donald Winch In Context: An Essay On Wealth And Life [Book Review], Gregory Moore

Gregory Moore

Donald Winch is one of the leading historians of ideas of the last half century and
hence, given the Australian tradition of not deferring to individuals of high
standing, it is incumbent upon me to treat both him and his most recent publication,
Wealth and Life, roughly. He is an Englishman to boot. Unfortunately this critical,
if not disrespectful, Antipodean approach is a slightly taxing line to adopt in this
particular case due to the fact that Wealth and Life is, in many ways but not in all
ways, a valuable intellectual product. Indeed, unlike many young scholars who are ...

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, saurabh gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber 2009 University of North Florida

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber

Saurabh Gupta

End-User Training (EUT) has enjoyed a rich tradition of research in Information Systems. However, with the growing pace of change in technology and the dynamic nature of business, organizations are spending an increasing amount of money on end-user training. Training methods are also changing with little research to support new approaches. Thus, extensive research is required in the future. To be credible, end-user training research should preserve and build upon the significant literature that exists, both in IS and Education. This paper provides a review of EUT literature focusing on training methods. It summarizes research findings, while pointing out key ...

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson 2009 Griffith University

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

This conceptual paper proposes an expanded relationship service-profit chain as a business success model based on blending human resource management and marketing within the relationship marketing framework. The major contribution of the paper is the extension of thought and usage of the service-profit chain through the super-imposition of a relationship building approach to the provision of service. The proposed model draws on the original service-profit chain, which is further enhanced through the addition of a relationship marketing orientation guiding business culture and combining internal marketing and human resource management activities to best implement an updated service-profit chain. The enhanced relationship ...

Kris Swanberg (M.S. Ed. ’10) – Nice Cream Chicago, 2009 DePaul University

Kris Swanberg (M.S. Ed. ’10) – Nice Cream Chicago

Dr. Harold Welsch

Nice Cream produces and sells hand-crafted, organic ice cream in over 20 retail locations throughout Chicago. Having learned about the Coleman Center only six months before graduating, Kris took an elective entrepreneurship course, second place in the 2010 Launch DePaul competition, and some last-minute coaching. Along the way, she made two important connections for her company – one was with a potential investor who inquired about the possibility of taking Nice Cream national, and the other was with the local food buyer for Whole Foods, which led to Nice Cream’s placement in three area stores. Today, Kris employs one other ...

Vista, Vision And Visual Consumption From The Age Of Enlightenment, Hélène de Burgh-Woodman, Jan Brace-Govan 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Vista, Vision And Visual Consumption From The Age Of Enlightenment, Hélène De Burgh-Woodman, Jan Brace-Govan

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman

Drawing on previous discussions of visual consumption in marketing, this paper uses two historical examples to examine visuality and the enduring effect of the Age of Enlightenment on visual consumption. Drawing on the French garden and the philosophical trope of the Molyneux Man, the manner in which the consumption experience is mediated and narrated through vision is considered. It is argued that cultural perspective and individual perception work in constant dialogue to produce an individual’s ability to consume, or ‘take in’, visual signs inherent to our world. From the Enlightenment, this interaction has characterized the contemporary consumer’s world ...

Is Strategy Different For Very Small And New Firms?, G. Lumpkin, Alexander McKelvie, David Gras, Robert Nason 2009 Selected Works

Is Strategy Different For Very Small And New Firms?, G. Lumpkin, Alexander Mckelvie, David Gras, Robert Nason

Robert Nason

In this paper, we argue that much of the small business strategic management literature has drawn too heavily from work done on large, established firms. We build upon the notions of the liabilities of smallness and newness to discuss how microenterprises and very new firms are different in regards to their strategic analysis, strategic content, strategic resources, and strategic processes. We note that there are a number of important and non-obvious questions that need to be asked that have implications for the most common firms in the world, those that are very small.

The Rbv And Value Creation: A Managerial Perspective, Angelina Zubac, Graham Hubbard, Lester Johnson 2009 University of Adelaide

The Rbv And Value Creation: A Managerial Perspective, Angelina Zubac, Graham Hubbard, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

Purpose: The paper aims to explain why the customer value construct is important to resource-based view (RBV) scholars and how one might define it to study it. Design/methodology/approach: By a summary of the ideas behind the RBV and previously applied definitions of customer value, the paper explains why Woodruff's multidimensional definition of customer value is suited to studying customer value from a managerial perspective. To this end, it develops a framework and derives three research questions for studying how managers use the firm's resources to creat customer value. Findings: It was found that to understand how ...
