# ﻿Allie measured her foot Essay

Allie measured her foot and it was 21cm long, and then she measured her Mother’s foot, and it was 24cm long. “I must have big feet, my foot is nearly as long as my Mom’s!” But then she thought to measure heights, and found she is 133cm tall, and her Mom is 152cm tall. In a table this is:
The “foot-to-height” ratio in fraction style is:

So the ratio for Allie is 21 : 133
By dividing both values by 7 we get 21/7 : 133/7 = 3 : 19
And the ratio for Mom is 24 : 152
By dividing both values by 8 we get 24/8 : 152/8 = 3 : 19
The simplified “foot-to-height” ratios are now:
Allie:

“Oh!” she said, “the Ratios are the same”.
“So my foot is only as big as it should be for my height, and is not really too big.” The following assignment illustrates the process a company initiates in order to implement a successful integrated marketing communications strategy.

2. If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why? (a). I would choose convertible bonds ( and it is because it allows you to exchange the bonds for capital stock of the corporation) And I would determine the sale price based on the investment that I have made into this company . Meaning the material that I have purchase in order to make this business work, the time that I have also invested to running a successful business this all would play a big factor into what my price would be. Because you have to think about this is your pride and joy this is what has made you

Dear Chiedeka,

How is the amount of bond premium or discount to be amortized in a period

determined using the straight-line method?

Veliota

Respond

Collapse Mark as Read RE: Dear Chiedeka Chiedeka Hargrove 9/13/2013 9:25:51 PM
“In some circumstances the profession permits an exception to the conceptually appropriate method of determining interest for bond issues. A company is allowed to determine interest indirectly by allocating a discount or a premium equally to each period over the term to maturity—if doing so produces results that are not materially different from the usual (and preferable) interest method. The decision should be guided by whether the straight-line method recording interest each period at the same dollar amount. would tend to mislead investors and creditors in the particular circumstance.

By the straight-line method, the discount in Illustration 14-2 and Graphic 14-4 would be allocated equally to the six semiannual periods (three years):

Allocating the discount or premium equally over the life of the bonds by the straight-line method results in a constant dollar amount of interest each period. An amortization schedule, then, would serve little purpose.” I do not quite understand this though, could you explain in plain English for me please?

Do a quick search online for an example of a company that got funding from a bond. Report back to the class the name of the company, the amount of the bond, the type of bond, and the sales price of the bond.

Pimco and BlackRock Incorporated are companies that received funding from a bond. The amount of the bond was \$49 billion, the type of bond was a registered bond and the sale price of the bond was for BPimco was \$8 billion and for Blackrock was \$13 billion.

If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why?

If I had to choose a type of bond for my company to issue I would choose would be a registered bond. My reason is that it is recorded in my corporate records so that I would know all the owners within my corporation. I would determine the sales price by the market value. The reason is the market value of the bond could fluctuate. It makes the bonds more valuable.

In your opinion, what is the biggest distinction between stock and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation?

The biggest distinction between stocks and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation is that bonds are issued for debt securities and stocks are issued for equity securities. Bonds are not sold like stock which could be sold over the counter and are less risky than stocks.

If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why?

From doing a search online I found Pacific Investment Management Co. and BlackRock Inc bought \$billion of a corporate bond deal. If i had to choose a type a bond its would be a Corporate bonds. Companies sell debt through the public securities markets just as they sell stock. A company has a lot of flexibility as to how much debt it can issue and what interest rate it will pay, although it must make the bond attractive enough to interest investors or no one will buy them. The biggest distinction between stock and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation? Stocks, or shares of stock are ownerships interest in a corporation. Bonds are a form of long-term debt in which the issuing corporation promises to pay the principal amount at a specific date.Stocks pay dividends to the owners, but only if the corporation declares a dividend. Dividends are a distribution of a corporation’s profits. Bonds pay interest to the bondholders.

I would choose a type of bond for my company it will be secured bond because this is when a company is backed up by specific corporate assets…… I would determine the sale price by for finding out the face value then I will determine the interest that will charge on the face value of the investment. In your opinion, what is the biggest distinction between stock and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation? Bonds are written promises to pay a specific amount of money at a specific time and a debt of corporation. Stock represent corporate ownership or equity there is no promise to pay any specific amount of money back.

1. Do a quick search online for an example of a company that that got funding from a bond. Report back to the class the name of the company, the amount of the bond, and the sales price of the bond. Black Rock is the company that purchased a bond from Verizon Wireless, the bond amount is 49 billion, this is a secured bond, and the sale price was 13 billion.

2. If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why? I would choose a secured bond, because it is backed up by specific assets, such as a home or business. The sales price can be determined based on the investment that was made into this company.

Dear Chiedeka,

How is the amount of bond premium or discount to be amortized in a period

determined using the straight-line method?

“In some circumstances the profession permits an exception to the conceptually appropriate method of determining interest for bond issues. A company is allowed to determine interest indirectly by allocating a discount or a premium equally to each period over the term to maturity—if doing so produces results that are not materially different from the usual (and preferable) interest method. The decision should be guided by whether the straight-line method recording interest each period at the same dollar amount. would tend to mislead investors and creditors in the particular circumstance.

By the straight-line method, the discount in Illustration 14-2 and Graphic 14-4 would be allocated equally to the six semiannual periods (three years):

Allocating the discount or premium equally over the life of the bonds by the straight-line method results in a constant dollar amount of interest each period. An amortization schedule, then, would serve little purpose.” I do not quite understand this though, could you explain in plain English for me please?

Hi Wendy,

My preference would be to receive a bond instead of stock. The value of the bond would be paid and with the stock you are not guaranteed the value because stock can drop dramatically.

2. If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why? I would choose convertible bonds (it is because it allows you to exchange the bonds for capital stock of the corporation). I would determine the sale price based on the investment that I have made into this company . Meaning the material that I have purchased in order to make this business work, the time
that I have also invested to running a successful business this all would play a big factor into what my price would be. Because you have to think about this is your pride and joy this is what has made you what you are today you can’t let it go for any amount of money you have to put the time and energy into making the best discussion for your family.

Do a quick search online for an example of a company that got funding from a bond. Report back to the class the name of the company, the amount of the bond, the type of bond, and the sales price of the bond.

Pimco and BlackRock Incorporated are companies that received funding from a bond. The amount of the bond was \$49 billion, the type of bond was a registered bond and the sale price of the bond was for BPimco was \$8 billion and for Blackrock was \$13 billion.

If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why?

If I had to choose a type of bond for my company to issue I would choose would be a registered bond. My reason is that it is recorded in my corporate records so that I would know all the owners within my corporation. I would determine the sales price by the market value. The reason is the market value of the bond could fluctuate. It makes the bonds more valuable.

In your opinion, what is the biggest distinction between stock and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation?

The biggest distinction between stocks and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation is that bonds are issued for debt securities and stocks are issued for equity securities. Bonds are not sold like stock which could be sold over the counter and are less risky than stocks.

Amount of the Bond: \$49 million

Sales Price of Bond: \$8 million

If you had to choose a type of bond for your company to issue, which would you choose? How would you determine the sales price? Why? I would choose a secured bond because it is backed by specific corporate assets, which is a form of a collateral on the loan. I would determine the sales price by the market value and the investment of the company.

From doing a search online I found Pacific Investment Management Co. and BlackRock Inc bought \$billion of a corporate bond deal. If i had to choose a type a bond its would be a Corporate bonds. Companies sell debt through the public securities markets just as they sell stock. A company has a lot of flexibility as to how much debt it can issue and what interest rate it will pay, although it must make the bond attractive enough to interest investors or no one will buy them.

The biggest distinction between stock and bonds from the perspective of the issuing corporation? Stocks, or shares of stock are ownerships interest in a corporation. Bonds are a form of long-term debt in which the issuing corporation promises to pay the principal amount at a specific date.Stocks pay dividends to the owners, but only if the corporation declares a dividend. Dividends are a distribution of a corporation’s profits. Bonds pay interest to the bondholders.
