  5. Since this course is generally required of all business majors, it is important to emphasize that everyone needs to have a basic understanding of financial concepts so that they can communicate effectively within an organization. This is the same reason that everyone is required to take marketing courses, management courses, etc. It is important to speak the language of business, and that includes finance. Marketing Have to work within a budget Marketing research is often very important to financial analysts; those doing the research need to understand what information the analysts need so that they ask the right questions Marketing financial products – including entire companies through IPOs and seasoned equity offerings, as well as insurance and other basic financial products Accounting In smaller businesses, accountants often perform both the accounting and finance functions Prepare the financial statements that financial analysts rely on for information Management Business strategy – have to understand the goals of the business and how cash flow works Understand how job performance affects profitability Personal Finance For many students, emphasizing the personal finance issues whenever possible can make the material more relevant Decisions about 401K plans, saving for houses, cars, child’s college, etc. can be discussed throughout the course Day-to-day decisions about consumption vs. saving can also be discussed within a finance framework
  6. Emphasize that “business finance” is just another name for “corporate finance” mentioned under the four basic types. Students often get confused by the terminology, especially when different terms are used to refer to the same thing.

  13. Try to have the students discuss each of the goals above and the inherent problems of the first three goals: Maximize profit – Are we talking about long-run or short-run profits? Do we mean accounting profits or some measure of cash flow? Minimize costs – We can minimize costs today by not purchasing new equipment, or by delaying maintenance, but this may not be in the best interest of the firm or its owners. Maximize market share – This has been a strategy of many of the dot.com companies. They issued stock and then used it primarily for advertising to increase the number of “hits” to their Web sites. Even though many of the companies may have huge market share (i.e. Amazon) that still does not guarantee positive earnings, so their owners may not be happy. Maximize the current value of the company’s stock There is no short run vs. long run here. The stock price should incorporate expectations about the future of the company and consider the trade-off between short-run profits and long-run profits. The purpose of a for-profit business should be to make money for its owners. Maximizing the current stock price increases the wealth of the owners of the firm. This is analogous to maximizing owners’ equity for firms that do not have publicly traded stock. Not-for-profits can also follow the same principle, but their “owners” are the constituencies that they were created to help. The instructors manual provides a letter to stockholders that was written by former Coca-Cola CEO Roberto Goizueta. There is also a brief discussion of an article that appeared in Fortune magazine that discusses Coke vs. Pepsi and their different philosophies on business in the early 1990s. Ethics Note: See the instructor’s manual for a discussion of Dow-Corning, silicone breast implants, and the ethics involved with pursuing owners’ wealth at all costs.
  14. Video Note: This video focuses on how one company handled the tough decision to cut jobs and managed to successfully increase shareholder value. It features ABT Co. in Canada. A common example of an agency relationship is a real estate broker – in particular, if you break it down between a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. A classic conflict of interest is when the agent is paid on commission, so they may be less willing to let the buyer know that a lower price might be accepted or they may elect to only show the buyer homes that are listed at the high end of the buyer’s price range. Ethics Note: The instructor’s manual provides a discussion of Gillette and the apparent agency problems that existed prior to the introduction of the Sensor razor. Direct agency costs – the purchase of something for management that can’t be justified from a risk-return standpoint; monitoring costs. Indirect agency costs – management’s tendency to forgo risky or expensive projects that could be justified from a risk-return standpoint.
  15. Incentives – discuss how incentives must be carefully structured. For example, tying bonuses to profits might encourage management to pursue short-run profits and forgo projects that require a large initial outlay. Stock options may work, but there may be an optimal level of insider ownership. Beyond that level, management may be in too much control and may not act in the best interest of all stockholders. The type of stock can also affect the effectiveness of the incentive. Corporate control – ask the students why the threat of a takeover might make managers work toward the goals of stockholders. Other groups also have a financial stake in the firm. They can provide a valuable monitoring tool, but they can also try to force the firm to do things that are not in the owners’ best interest.
  16. Video Note: This video discusses how capital is raised in financial markets and shows an open-outcry market at the Chicago Board of Trade. Discuss the cash flows to the firm. You might have students turn to Figure 1.2 in their book to see an illustration of the cash flows. The main point is that cash comes into the firm from the sale of debt and equity. The money is used to purchase assets. Those assets generate cash that is used to pay stakeholders, reinvest in additional assets, repay debtholders, and pay dividends to stockholders. Students are often confused by the fact that the NASDAQ is an OTC market. Explain that the NASDAQ market site is just a convenient place for reporters to show how stocks are moving, but that trading does not actually take place there. See the instructor’s manual for a discussion of an October 1999 BusinessWeek article concerning the move by the NYSE and the NASDAQ toward becoming for-profit companies and the possible impact on investors. www: Click on the NYSE and NASDAQ hyperlinks to go to their Web sites
