Return on investment is normally used to judge the managerial performance in an investment center. Managers therefore try to control and improve the ROI of their investment center.
Rate-of-return regulation was used most regularly to determine reasonable prices for goods supplied by utility companies. This regulation is considered fair due to the fact that they give the company the opportunity to recover costs incurred by providing consumers with their goods or services while simultaneously protecting consumers from paying exorbitant prices that would provide these companies with monopolistic profits. Under this method of regulation, government regulators examine the firm's base rate, cost of capital, operating expenses, and overall depreciation in order to estimate the total revenue needed for the firm to fully cover its expenses.
The goal of rate-of-return regulation is for the regulator to evaluate the effects of different price levels on potential earnings for a firm in order for consumers to be protected while ensuring investors receive a "fair" rate of return on their investment. An investment center manager can improve ROI in basically three ways. To illustrate how an investment center manager can improve ROI by making the use of three methods mentioned above consider the following example:
The following data represents the results of an investment center of the operations of a company for the most recent month. Net operating income
Average operating assets | $10,000
50,000 |

The rate of return generated by the company for this investment center is as follows:
ROI = Margin × Turnover
(Net operating income / Sales) × (Sales / Average operating assets)
($10,000 / $100,000) × ($100,000 / $50,000)
10% × 2
= 20%

Net Sales L&L had net sales of $74.5 million in fiscal 2005 and $86.5 million in fiscal 2006; an increase of $12 million, or 16.1 percent. The increase in net sales was driven, in part, by an increase in revenue from services provided by Sassy Spa, which increased from $3.9 million in fiscal 2005 to $11.2 million in fiscal 2006. The remaining increase in total net sales of $4.7 million was because of an increase in the average transaction value, driven by higher average retail sales on a per unit basis due to the favorable customer response to the use of more vintage prints in its garments. 2 .

...Provisions for aircraft delivery accounted for a huge RM602mil, for impairment in value of freight aircraft RM314mil and stock obsolescence RM179mil. These are non-recurring items. Increase in fuel costs accounted for RM305mil, and if not for this and the one-off provisions, Malaysia Airlines would have actually recorded a net profit of about RM123mil, assuming it does not pay taxes because of its huge capital allowances. This may or may not be a kitchen sinking exercise – an exercise to make huge provisions to make the situation look better in future – but Malaysia Airlines’ problems are not as bad as what the figures show at first glance. Malaysia Airlines is not alone in terms of a tough final quarter for last year. Singapore Airlines’ net income was more than halved to S$135mil by a 33% rise in fuel costs. But there is one difference, Singapore Airline’s yield for the quarter was S$12.1 cents or some 29 sen which gave it a good cushion in bad times. Malaysia Airlines’ for the full year 2011 was just 24.7 sen but indications are that even that might have been at the expense of capacity utilisation. The quarterly results show that revenue management continues to be poor. For the quarter in question, capacity as measured by the ASK went up only a marginal 1% but traffic as measured by RPK was down 6% and the seat load factor down five percentage points to 72.5% The yield may have increased (for the full year, it rose 4% to 24.7 sen, but the figure for the quarter was......

...Here are the characteristics of a well-behaved residual vs. fits plot and what they suggest about the appropriateness of the simple linear regression model: * The residuals "bounce randomly" around the 0 line. This suggests that the assumption that the relationship is linear is reasonable. * The residuals roughly form a "horizontal band" around the 0 line. This suggests that the variances of the error terms are equal. * No one residual "stands out" from the basic random pattern of residuals. This suggests that there Normal Probability Plot Note that the relationship between the theoretical percentiles and the sample percentiles is approximately linear. Therefore, the normal probability plot of the residuals suggests that the error terms are indeed normally distributed. We did what seems like an awful lot of work to create our normal probability plot of residuals. That's because we effectively created it "by hand." The good news is that most statistical software, including Minitab, will create the normal probability plot of the residuals for us. In fact, Minitab offers three different versions of the plots. The first one looks just like the above plot. The second version of the plot: draws a line (with a confidence band) through the points to help you decide if the relationship is linear. And, the third version of the plot — the one we will probably use the most often — looks like: The advantage of this version of the plot is that it includes (in the......

Mas Privatisation

...15% Title of essay: On 8 August 2014, Khazanah National announced plans to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an attempt to revive the national carrier as it was struggling financially. Without doubt, the twin aviation disasters, MH370 and MH17, have also further contributed negatively towards MAS financials. The former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the national flag carrier should be privatised as it is running at a loss. The Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu), on the other hand, strongly stated that they will only support the privatisation of MAS if there is to be a new management team. In the past 12 years, MAS has undertaken about half-a-dozen restructuring exercises. Considering its current situation, the idea to privatise is seen as a necessity. In your opinion, can MAS turn itself around if it is now to be privatised? Why or why not? Justify your stand and support your arguments with reasons and examples. You should write between 600 and 650 words.

...Income and substitution effects The inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded results from both an income effect and a substitution effect. A change in price causes a change in both the relative price of the product and the purchasing power of the consumer’s income. Either one of these changes taken in isolation would bring about a change in the quantity demanded. One can think of the total change in quantity demanded brought about by a change in price as being the sum of these two isolated changes. In algebraic terms, we ∆Qd  ∆Qd   ∆Qd  can write: =  substitution effect +   income effect. Our strategy will be to find the income ∆P  ∆P   ∆P  effect; the substitution effect is then found as the difference between the total effect (the left-hand side of the equation) and the income effect. ∆Qd ∆I  ∆Qd  Consider, then, the income effect term. It can be rewritten as  .  income effect = ∆I ∆P  ∆P  That is, the income effect is the product of two terms. The first term measures the amount by which a change in income changes quantity demanded; the second term measures the amount by which a change in the price changes a consumer’s income, or purchasing power. Multiplying them gives us the income ∆I dollars; each one of these dollars effect: a price increase reduces the consumer’s purchasing power by ∆P ∆Qd reduces the quantity demanded by units. ∆I For example, consider an individual who is currently purchasing four DVDs per month.

...Tax > NZ Income Tax Law and Practice (revised edition) > CONCEPTS OF INCOME > [¶40-010] The concept of income [¶40-010] The concept of income Click to open document in a browser Last reviewed: 27 June 2011 Income tax is imposed by s BB 1 of the Income Tax Act 2007. The courts recognise that it is the Act itself which imposes the liability for income tax. The Commissioner acts in quantification of the amount due. These propositions are outlined at ¶10-500. The determination of a taxpayer’s income tax liability for the income year begins by ascertaining the taxpayer’s income. Income includes amounts defined as income under Pt C of the Income Tax Act 2007 (ignoring non-taxable capital gains and windfall gains). A taxpayer’s assessable income is the amount of that income, less specified amounts such as exempt income and excluded income. Refer to ¶12-010 for a discussion of the process for the calculation of taxable income. Other jurisdictions take a different approach. In the United Kingdom, income tax is imposed on income and on certain capital receipts. The income is classified by reference to its source, using the categories set out in the schedules to the Taxes Acts (UK). To be taxable, a receipt must be listed in one of those categories, for example, trade profits, interest, pensions and foreign employment income. Under the Land and Income Tax Act 1954 and the Income Tax Act 1976, the particular classes of assessable income set out were prefaced by a statement along the......

Why Us Government Chose Residual Income Maintenance

...the needs of the poor. Some argued a universal approach to income maintenance would secure an income for poor families with children. Many argued, especially social activist, that income maintenance assistance should be temporary for those experiencing financial hardship. This is probably why the government chose a residual approach to income maintenance rather than a universal approach. The purpose for residual approach income maintenance is to provide a minimum level of income to families and individuals. Recipients must demonstrate an economic need according to the (means test), with eligibility based on income and assets (p.116). Examples of residual income are Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), food stamps, Medicaid, earned income tax credit (EITC) and (Section 8) housing aid. Each program includes an incentive or clause that promotes able bodies to increase their income by earing wages to supplement their assistance. In conclusion, according to Antipoverty Strategy, when hourly wages are high, the number of people in poverty tends to decline. (p.163) The purpose of universal income maintenance is to offer minimum income for poor families with children. Universal approach supporter, President Nixon, proposed a replacement for the old welfare aid programs with a single program called, “Aid to Families with Dependent Children.” This plan would grant income to families with children, but with strict......

...The education system in the United States is in crisis. Students who attend high-minority, low-income schools are less likely to achieve success than those who attend white, middle-income schools. This comes from a variety of traits present in low-income schools, including inadequate funding and resources and low parental involvement. Education in the United States is a positional good, which significantly decreases the relative value of our education system. Until this is remedied, there is little we can do to transform education reform in order to benefit disadvantaged and privileged populations alike. That being said, there are some changes we can implement that could help even out the education system and make education in the United States less of a positional good which mainly lie in diversifying the socioeconomics of cities and suburbs. I begin by addressing and defining various phrases within the prompt. A “positional good” is a good that is used as a symbol of status. We would traditionally see positional goods in the form of fancy cars or jewels-goods that exhibit the owner's wealth or standing. These goods are in scarce supply, which leads only a portion of the population to be able to obtain them. Education in the United States is a definite positional good, and this reality is the main problem with the system itself. A so-called “good” education in our country is only accessed by a certain segment of the population. This segment is usually suburban, white, and...
