Quantitative Business Analysis Question

The motion picture industry is a competitive business. More than 50 studios produce a total of 300 to 400 new motion pictures each year, and the financial success of each motion picture varies considerably. The opening weekend gross sales, the total gross sales, the number of theaters the movie was shown in, and the number of weeks the motion picture was open are common variables used to measure the success of a motion picture. Data collected for a sample of 100 motion pictures produced in 20XX are contained in the file named Movies. Use all 100 data points.

Managerial Report

Prepare a report (see below) using the numerical methods of descriptive statistics presented in this module to learn how the variables contribute to the success of a motion picture. Be sure to include the following three (3) items in your report.

  1. Descriptive statistics (5-number summary, mean, mode, range, and standard deviation) for each of the four variables along with an explanation of what the descriptive statistics tell us about the motion picture industry.
  2. What motion pictures, if any, should be considered high-performance outliers in each of the four variables? If there are any outliers in any category, please list them and state for which category they are an outlier. Describe which method you used to determine if there were or not.
  3. Descriptive statistics (correlation coefficient) showing the relationship between total gross sales and each of the other three variables. Please provide an explanation of the relationships.movies.xlsx

Elements of a Contract, law homework help

Justin was starting a landscaping business.  Susan managed an apartment complex.  Justin and Susan met and discussed the services he could provide.  He offered lawn cutting and landscaping services for compensation of $450 per month for the term of a year.  Susan said, “That would be great.  When can you start?”  Justin bought a new heavy duty commercial mower for the job and started work that week.  After 4 weeks, he went to Susan to collect his payment.  She told him she didn’t need his services after all and that she was not going to pay him because he didn’t do the work the way she wanted it done.  In addition, she told him only the owner can hire employees to do lawn work, and she didn’t have the authority.

Estimating Returns Assessment

2-1 Estimating Returns Assessment


For this assessment, you will use a hypothetical situation in order to demonstrate the use of a probability analysis in estimating returns. Imagine the following scenario:

A company is faced with a 20 percent chance of a poor economy, a 40 percent chance of an average economy, and a 40 percent chance of an above-average economy. The company would expect only a 10 percent return in a poor economy, an 18 percent return in an average economy, and a 30 percent return in an above-average economy.


Use this hypothetical situation above to answer these questions:

·  What would the expected return be for this company?

·  What would the standard deviation be for this company?

Then, explain how the standard deviation helps you better understand what to expect in terms of a return. Use at least two resources to support your ideas.

You have the option of either completing the calculations in a spreadsheet or just describing the steps in the process.

Other Requirements

·  Length: Your paper should be 1–2 typed, double-spaced pages. In addition, include a title page and references.

2-2 Refinancing Decision Assessment


Changing interest rates create opportunities for home owners to gain advantage by refinancing their homes.

Imagine you have a $100,000 mortgage. Your current loan is at 7 percent with 14 years left, negotiated one year ago and involving $2,000 in closing costs. You are considering refinancing at 5.5 percent for 15 years. The closing costs would be $1,500.

For this assessment, use the scenario above to write a paper in which you address the following:

·  Would you decide to refinance? Why or why not?

·  What qualitative considerations would you consider in your decision to refinance or not refinance?

Provide examples of calculations you would use to help you make your decision. In addition, use at least two resources to support your ideas.

Other Requirements

·  Length: Your paper should be 1–2 typed, double-spaced pages. In addition, include a title page and references page.

2-3 Unit 2 Problems Assessment


For this assessment, you will apply the necessary knowledge to assess ways to maximize shareholder wealth.


For this assessment, complete Problems 1–6. You may need an HP 10B II Business Calculator to complete the following problems. You may use Word or Excel to complete the assessments throughout this course, but you will find Excel to be most helpful for creating spreadsheets.

Problem 2-1: Portfolio Required Return

You are the money manager of a $10 million investment fund, which consists of four stocks. This fund has the following investments and betas:
















If the market’s required rate of return is 12 percent, and the risk-free rate is 4 percent, what is the fund’s required rate of return?

Problem 2-2: Required Rate of Return

·  Stock R’s beta = 1.5

·  Stock S’s beta = 0.75

Consider that the required return on an average stock is 14 percent. The risk-free rate of return is 6 percent. If this is so, the required return on the riskier stock exceeds the required return on the less risky stock by how much?

Problem 2-3: CAPM and Required Return

Calculate the required rate of return for XYZ Inc using the following information:

·  The investors expect a 3.0 percent rate of inflation.

·  The real risk-free rate is 2.0 percent.

·  The market risk premium is 6.0 percent.

·  XYZ Inc. has a beta of 1.7.

·  Over the past 5 years, the realized rate of return has averaged 13.0 percent.

2.  $150 per year for 5 years at 5 percent.

3.  $350 per year for 5 years at 0 percent.

Problem 2-5: Uneven Cash Flow Stream

Use the table below to answer the following:

1.  What are the present values of the following cash flow streams if they are compounded at 5 percent annually?
