The details of all transactions cannot be remembered by the business man. Therefore it is necessary to keep written records of all such transactions. The records of written transaction will help business to settle disputes and also possible to provide valuable information to the owner of business. Book-keeping disciple has been developed to serve this purpose. The aim of Book-keeping is to provide the information needed by the businessmen and also it helps him to take decisions.

Analysis of financial information 2

Objectives of Financial Statement Analysis and Financial Reporting

You are interested in the stock of a major financial institution as a possible investment. An article about the company in today’s issue of a financial journal raised some questions about the stock. The article noted that for the past three years, the company’s return on equity averaged 8.5 percent, compared with an estimated industry average of 15 percent. A major competitor’s return on equity rate was 16 percent. Although the company you are interested in doubled its revenue last year, this increase was not reflected in the return on equity or in the price of the stock. What would you make of this information? Are there reasons why you might want to investigate this stock further before making a decision?


Accounting Assumptions, Principles, Procedures and Policies

Accounting assumptions are broad concepts that underlie generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and serve as a foundation for these principles. The major accounting assumptions include the following: the business entity assumption, the continuity assumption, the periodic and timely reporting assumption, and the monetary unit assumption.


Understanding Financial Statements

Financial statements are the most widely used and most comprehensive way of communicating financial information about a business enterprise to users of the information provided on the reports. Different users of financial statements have different information needs. General-purpose financial statements have been developed to meet the needs of users of financial statements, primarily the needs of investors and creditors.


Corporate Finance

Present value calculations and the valuation of physical investment projects

For the purposes of this chapter, we will consider a firm to be a package of investment projects. The key question, therefore, is how do the firm’s shareholders or managers decide on which investment projects to undertake and which to discard? Developing the tools that should be used for project evaluation is the emphasis of this chapter.


Risk and return: mean–variance analysis and the CAPM

In Chapter 1 we examined the use of present value techniques in the evaluation of physical investment projects and in the valuation of primitive financial assets (i.e. stocks and bonds). A key input into NPV calculations is the rate of return used in the construction of the discount factor but, thus far, we have said little regarding where this rate of return comes from. Our objective in this chapter is to demonstrate how the risk of a given security or project impacts on the rate of return required from it and hence affects the value assigned to that asset in equilibrium.


Factor models

The arbitrage pricing theory (APT) gives an alternative to the CAPM as a method to compute expected returns on stocks. The basis for the APT is a factor model of stock returns, and we will define and discuss these models first. From there we will demonstrate how to derive expected returns using the idea that the returns on stocks, which are exposed to a common set of factors, must be mutually consistent, given each stock’s sensitivity to each factor.




All things are subject to the law of cause and effect. This great principle knows no exception, and we would search in vain in the realm of experience for an example to the contrary. Human progress has no tendency to cast it in doubt, but rather the effect of confirming it and of always further widening knowledge of the scope of its validity. Its continued and growing recognition is therefore closely linked to human progress.



An imperfect satisfaction of needs leads to the stunting of our nature. Failure to satisfy them brings about our destruction. But to satisfy our needs is to live and prosper. Thus the attempt to provide for the satisfaction of our needs is synonymous with the attempt to provide for our lives and well-being. It is the most important of all human endeavors, since it is the prerequisite and foundation of all others.



If the requirements for a good, in a time period over which the provident activity of men is to extend, are greater than the quantity of it available to them for that time period, and if they endeavor to satisfy their needs for it as completely as possible in the given circumstances, men feel impelled to engage in the activity described earlier and designated economizing. But their perception of this relationship gives rise to another phenomenon, the deeper understanding of which is of decisive importance for our science. I refer to the value of goods.
