Transactions entail low costs, including the cost of reaching the market, the actual brokerage costs, and the cost of transferring the asset. </li></ul><ul><li>4.

  34. 34. PRIMARY CAPITAL MARKETS <ul><li>Municipal Bond Issues.

  36. 36. PRIMARY CAPITAL MARKETS <ul><li>Seasoned equity issues are new shares offered by firms that already have stock outstanding . </li></ul><ul><li>An example would be General Electric, which is a large, well-regarded firm that has had public </li></ul><ul><li>stock trading on the NYSE for over 50 years. </li></ul><ul><li>If General Electric decided that it needed new capital, it could sell additional shares of its common stock to the public at a price very close to the current price of the firm’s stock. </li></ul>
  37. 37. PRIMARY CAPITAL MARKET <ul><li>(2) initial public offerings (IPOs)- involve a firm selling its common stock to the public for the first time. </li></ul><ul><li>At the time of an IPO offering, there is no existing public market for the stock, that is, the company has been closely held </li></ul><ul><li>New issues (seasoned or IPOs) are typically underwritten by investment bankers, </li></ul><ul><li>investment bankers acquire the total issue from the company and sell the securities to interested investors. </li></ul><ul><li>The underwriter gives advice to the corporation on the general characteristics of the issue, its pricing, and the timing </li></ul><ul><li>of the offering. </li></ul>
  38. 38. SECONDARY FINANCIAL MARKETS <ul><li>Secondary markets - permit trading in outstanding issues; </li></ul><ul><li>that is, stocks or bonds already sold to the public are traded between current and potential owners </li></ul><ul><li>The proceeds from a sale in the secondary market do not go to the issuing unit (the government, municipality, or company) </li></ul><ul><li>but,rather, to the current owner of the security. </li></ul>
  39. 39. Financial Futures <ul><li>In addition to the market for the bonds, a market has developed for futures contracts related to these bonds </li></ul><ul><li>These contracts allow the holder to buy or sell a specified amount of a given bond issue at a stipulated price. </li></ul>
  40. 40. Secondary Equity Markets <ul><li>The secondary equity market is usually been broken down into three major segments: </li></ul><ul><li>(1) the major national stock exchanges, including the New York, the Tokyo, and the London stock , Lusaka stock Exchanges </li></ul><ul><li>(2) regional stock exchanges in such cities as Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Osaka </li></ul><ul><li>and Nagoya in Japan, and Dublin in Ireland </li></ul><ul><li>(3) the over-the-counter (OTC) market, which involves trading in stocks not listed on an organized exchange. </li></ul>
