Response to discussion in 150 words-APA
 
 Beta
The company I have as part of my group project is ALLETE Inc which is responsible for providing clean electricity for the Midwest region. The overall beta for ALLETE Inc is 0.72. ALLETE Inc’s competitors include  PG& E whose beta is 1.1, EGAS is 0.21 and third company is Minnesota Energy Systems whose beta is 0.45. Beta is a method for comparing a stock’s volatility to that of the market as a whole. Stocks with a value lesser than 1 are more  unpredictable than the  request, meaning they will generally go up  further than the  request goes up, and go down  further than the  request goes down.  Stocks with a beta of  lower than 1 have a smoother lift  than the  request’s, generally still go up when the  request goes up and down when the  request goes down.  If the company has negative beta, which is not common, it will  generally move equally to the  request. Traditional and modified versions of the capital asset pricing model, as a rule, predict the value of stock returns much closer to the risk-free rate of return than that later on observed in reality (ZOZULYA, V., SOKOLOV, E., KOSTYRIN, E., & KOROLEV, S. (2021)). Beta makes extensive use of data. Beta provides you with an idea of the stock’s movement over the past three years in comparison to the market, typically reflecting measurements from at least 36 months ago. In addition, the price history of many technology stocks is insufficient to establish a reliable beta because they are still relatively new to the market. Since a single stock’s beta measure fluctuates over time, it is unreliable.
Capital Budgeting
  Capital budgeting requires dealing with high uncertainty from the unknown characteristics of cash flow, interest rate, and study period forecasts for future periods. Many fuzzy extensions of capital budgeting techniques have been proposed and used in a wide range of applications to deal with uncertainty (Sergi, D., Sari, I. U., & Senapati, T. (2022)). The complexity of the management and decision-making processes today necessitates a variety of approaches and strategies for investment evaluation. Management employs capital budgeting strategies to determine which projects will yield the greatest return over a specified time period due to the limited amount of capital or money available for new projects. Net Present Value(NPV) in cash flows associated with the acquisition of a fixed asset using net present value analysis, then reduce these cash flows to their present value. Then, accept the projects with the highest net present values until funds run out by comparing all projects with positive net present values. Companies frequently use the internal rate of return (IRR) to evaluate profit centers and select capital projects. However, this metric for budgeting can also assist you in evaluating specific personal financial decisions, such as mortgages and investments.

Overview
People should understand the impact of different types of risk on financial health, whether they’re dealing with personal or corporate finances. The risks for personal finance often only affect individuals and families. These risks come up, for example, when deciding whether you can afford to buy a house or invest in stocks. Financial risks for businesses often affect multiple people throughout the entire company. This includes individuals who do not work in the finance department. When businesses make finance-related decisions, it’s important that they know how their decisions affect all parts of their company.
Prompt
Read the Assessing a Company’s Future Financial Health case study. Then write a response.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Systematic and Unsystematic Risk: Explain the differences between systematic and unsystematic risk.
Financial Risks: Describe the potential impacts of the following types of financial risk on the company featured in the case study:

Interest rate risk
Economic risk
Credit risk
Operational risk

Lower Growth Impact: Explain the impact that a lower growth in sales could have on the dividend policy and retained earnings for the company described in the case study.
Higher Growth Impact: Explain the impact that a higher growth in sales could have on the dividend policy and retained earnings for the company described in the case study.

Your submission should be a 2- to 3-page Word document with 12-point Times New Roman font, double spacing, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA style.

To date, you have staunchly avoided placing any advertisements on your website.

To date, you have staunchly avoided placing any advertisements on your website. However, with revenues declining, you are considering relenting on this position. Before making a full commitment, you decide to try to determine whether the presence of ads has any negative impacts on your sales. Therefore, you make a deal with an advertiser to show a 10-second pop-up ad (that pops up and plays when the site is first visited and then becomes a banner ad on the page) intermittently over a period of one month. Suppose you’ve decided to show the ad during business hours (9:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m.), and not show the ad any other time during the month.
What are the “subjects” in this (field) experiment?
What is the treatment?
What is the relevant outcome?
Is treatment assignment random?
Suppose for each visitor to your site, whether the visitor sees the ad is determined randomly. After the month is completed, you have the following information:
Mean sales when ad was shown: $26.75
Standard deviation of sales when ad was shown: $18.21
Number of times ad was shown: 8,172
Mean sales when ad was not shown: $27.21
Standard deviation of sales when ad was not shown: $19.20
Number of time ad was not shown: 10,437
Does showing the ad affect your sales? Explain your reasoning.
Using the data from above, the advertiser claims there is evidence that running the ads may actually improve your sales. Is there evidence for this? Explain your reasoning, why or why not
