Financial Outcomes From Selection Of Insurance Intervals, Shana Anderson Stewart 2018 Utah State University

Financial Outcomes From Selection Of Insurance Intervals, Shana Anderson Stewart

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the potential value of enrolling in rainfall-index for pasture, rangeland, and forage insurance for Utah producers. A stochastic optimization model is used to identify the optimal selection of insurance intervals that will provide the maximum indemnity payments less premiums. Four Utah counties were selected for analysis. Results indicate that positive returns will occur greater than 60% of the time in all counties with the selected insurance intervals. The optimal months to insure varied in each county.


Doing Business In America: A Jewish History, Hasia Diner 2018 Purdue University

Doing Business In America: A Jewish History, Hasia Diner

Purdue University Press Book Previews

American and Jewish historians have long shied away from the topic of Jews and business. Avoidance patterns grew in part from old, often negative stereotypes that linked Jews with money, and the perceived ease and regularity with which they found success with money, condemning Jews for their desires for wealth and their proclivities for turning a profit. A new, dauntless generation of historians, however, realizes that Jewish business has had and continues to have a profound impact on American culture and development, and patterns of immigrant Jewish exploration of business opportunities reflect internal, communal, Jewish-cultural structures and their relationship to ...


Security Analysts And Capital Market Anomalies, Guo LI, Frank Weikai LI, K.C. John WEI 2018 Singapore Management University

Security Analysts And Capital Market Anomalies, Guo Li, Frank Weikai Li, K.C. John Wei

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

We examine whether analysts use information in well-known stock return anomalies when making recommendations. We find results contrary to the common view that analysts are sophisticated information intermediaries who help improve market efficiency. Specifically, when analysts make more favorable recommendations to stocks classified as overvalued, these stocks tend to have particularly large negative abnormal returns ex post. Moreover, analysts whose recommendations are more aligned with anomaly signals are more skilled and elicit greater recommendation announcement returns. Our results suggest that analysts' biased recommendations could be a source of market frictions that impede the efficient correction of mispricing.


Analysis Of The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act Relative To President Donald Trump's And Speaker Paul Ryan's Stated Goals, Jill Gathje 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Analysis Of The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act Relative To President Donald Trump's And Speaker Paul Ryan's Stated Goals, Jill Gathje

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), the most expansive change to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) since 1986. What was the purpose of overhauling the IRC? President Trump identified four main goals: (1) tax relief for the middle-class, (2) simplification of the tax code, (3) American economic growth, and (4) no additional debt added to the government’s deficit. Speaker Ryan also identified similar goals. Now that the TCJA has been in place for over six months, an analysis of the new law in respect to both the President’s ...

Accounting Academic Workloads In The Higher Education Sector: Balancing Workload Creep To Avoid Depreciation, Lisa Barnes, Warrick R. Long, Maria T. Northcote, Anthony Williams

Business Conference Papers

Accounting Academics according to the literature are subject to external influences such as preparing graduates for future workplaces, bridging the gap between industry and academia and development of pathways to becoming professional accountants for their student cohort. Add to this the internal influences of delivery methods for student engagement, work integrated learning and casualization of the workforce, the accounting academic is at capacity in terms of how these influences impact on workload. Using the “lived experience”, this research delves further into the academic themselves to find that they categorise their workload into four themes of Teaching, Research, Accounting academic administration ...

Babu George

This paper inspects the historical development of Cuba put against its challenges in promoting tourism. Due
to internal and external pressures, the economic development opportunities for Cuba were largely limited
to tourism – despite the best efforts by the Cuban authorities to diversify its economy. Drawing insights

pathways the Cuban economy and society took in Cuba’s its tryst with tourism as the primary development
driver. Particular thrust is given to Cuba – Soviet bonhomie and the “special period”. We conclude the
discussion by highlighting the ...

How The Introduction Of Streaming Has Changed The Financial Focal Points Of The Music Industry, Nathan Kiss 2018 Liberty University

How The Introduction Of Streaming Has Changed The Financial Focal Points Of The Music Industry, Nathan Kiss

Senior Honors Theses

For this thesis, the gathered research will demonstrate how the introduction of music streaming has made a monumental impact on the music industry and the financial effect it has had on various aspects of the creation and distribution of recorded music. The areas of research will range from the music labels in charge of producing and providing the music to the streaming services in charge of distributing the music. Focus will be on how music streaming developed in the late 1990s and took the music media world by storm, devaluing and diluting the power of the physical music industry in ...


Impacts Of Urbanization On Costs Of Production And Land Use In The Central Southern Seaboard: A Farm-Level Analysis, Richard F. Nehring, Kenneth Erickson, James M. Harris, Charlie Hallahan, Ani Katchova, Flavius Badau 2018 USDA, Economic Research Service

Impacts Of Urbanization On Costs Of Production And Land Use In The Central Southern Seaboard: A Farm-Level Analysis, Richard F. Nehring, Kenneth Erickson, James M. Harris, Charlie Hallahan, Ani Katchova, Flavius Badau

Journal of Applied Farm Economics

This study uses stochastic production frontier (SPF) and DEA frontier methods to estimate the impact of urban influence on the cost of production for traditional corn/soybeans farms in the Southern Seaboard (excepting Virginia and Alabama). We hypothesize that urban influence decreases the technical efficiency of these farms. Although states in this region are not entirely subject to urban influence, some parts of states in this region are highly urbanized. We find that farmers in urban-influenced locations are less technically efficient than farmers in rural locations in the region examined. During 2002-2014, stochastic production frontier and DEA frontier procedures indicate ...


Annual Net Returns To Cover Crops In Iowa, Alejandro Plastina, Fangge Liu, Wendiam Sawadgo, Fernando E. Miguez, Sarah Carlson, Guillermo Marcillo 2018 Iowa State University

Annual Net Returns To Cover Crops In Iowa, Alejandro Plastina, Fangge Liu, Wendiam Sawadgo, Fernando E. Miguez, Sarah Carlson, Guillermo Marcillo

Journal of Applied Farm Economics

Despite the active promotion of cover crops as a key conservation practice, their adoption is very limited. We developed a series of partial budgets based on a statewide survey of Iowa farmers to evaluate the changes in net returns resulting from the incorporation of cover crops into a corn or soybean production system. The average net returns to cover crop use for farmers who did not use cover crops for grazing livestock or forage were consistently negative across different planting and termination methods, tillage practices, and experience levels. Only farmers who used cover crops for grazing livestock or forage and ...

Children’s Cancer Charity employs development staff members in field offices across the country. These new hires require a specialized training for their role within the organization. The existing new hire training consists of a sales training and a week-long training held quarterly at the Executive Office. The current training lacks a foundational understanding of the various fundraising programs that exist at CCC and the training on the soft skills required to be successful in a development role. Two training series were designed to meet the needs of development new hires: Fundraising Program Training and Business Skills Training. The program ...

Seeking Excellence: Improving Objectivity In Player Analysis In Professional Basketball, Nathan Cook

Senior Honors Theses

This thesis details the creation and testing of an original statistical metric for analyzing individual basketball players in the National Basketball Association (NBA) by both their commonly measured statistics and their so-called “intangibles.” By using existing methods as both guides and a caution against potential shortcomings, an inclusive statistic with multiple layers of data can be built to best reflect an individual player’s overall value to his team. This metric will be adjusted to account for the differences across multiple eras of NBA play and the levels of talent with which a player played in order to avoid penalizing ...
