Financial Ratios In Sports

Financial statements both report on a firm's position at a point in time and on its operations over some past period. However, their real usefulness lies in the fact that they can be used to help predict the firm's future earnings and dividends as well as the risk factor of these cash flows. From equity investor's viewpoint, predicting the future is what financial statement analysis is all about. From management's viewpoint, financial statement analysis is useful both as a way to anticipate future conditions and, more important, as a starting point for planning actions that will influence the future course of events for the firm.

Financial ratios are designed to show relationships among financial statement accounts. Ratios put numbers into perspective. They provide the necessary comparisons in order to comprehend the firm's current situation along with it's past performance and its future potentials and threats. Such comparisons are made by ratio analysis. It must be pointed out that according to financial analysts, a single ratio is relatively useless in making relevant evaluations of a firm's health. Thus, if it is to be effectively interpreted a ratio must be systematically compared with other ratios of the examined company, or even the industry competitors during a specific period of time.

Analysts who use financial ratios extensively may be characterized as belonging to three main groups. Managers, who use ratios to help analyze, control, and improve the firm's operations, credit analysts, who analyze ratios to help ascertain a company's ability to pay its debts, and securities analysts, who are concerned with a company's efficiency and growth prospects. As it is expected, each group of analysts has specific areas of interest, which it wishes to investigate. Therefore, ratios may be characterized into specific task groupings. The five group categories are liquidity ratios, asset management ratios, debt management ratios, profitability ratios and market value ratios.

One of the first concerns of most financial analysts is liquidity. It is actually the ability of the firm to measure its maturing obligations. By relating the amount of cash and other current assets to the current obligations, ratio analysis provides a quick and easy-to-use measure of liquidity. The second groups of ratios, the working capital ratios, measure how effectively the firm is managing its assets. If it has too many assets, its interest expenses will be too high, and hence their profits will be depressed. On the other hand, if assets are too low, profitable sales may be lost. Thus, having the proper level of each type of asset is considered important. The stock turnover ratio is defined as cost of sales divided by inventories. These ratios suggest that the company hold extensive stocks of inventory; excess stocks are, of course, unproductive and represent an investment with a low or zero rate of return.

Profitability is the net result of a large number of policies and decisions. Although the ratios examined thus far provide some information about the way the firm is operating, the profitability ratios show the combined effects of liquidity, asset management, and debt management on operating income and net income. Return on capital employed is calculated by dividing the net profit before tax with the share capital and reserves.

Not all of RAM usable

Hey, I just reinstalled Win7 on my computer and for some reason It doesn't use all of my RAM.
For example in system properties it says 2 GB RAM (1.75 GB usable) any thoughts? 
 
p.s.  I have installed both the 32 and 64 bit versions but I know that that shouldn't matter with just 2 GB of RAM.

Keys to the Problem Not all of RAM usable


Your computer was not designed for Windows 7.
You can add RAM.
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireM3100/AspireM3100sp2.shtml
 
Most computers will have an allocation for hardware reserved.
Thus with 4 gb installed RAM it is common to see only 2.8 to 3.2 gb usable.
An allocation to graphics is common.

NT Kernel high cpu usage

On Win7Pro system, i7 quad core processor, 8GB ram.

I notice that NT Kernel & System is often using relatively high cpu, even though not many programs are loaded.
After initial boot/reboot, problem disappears, but eventually reappears.
It would seem to point to a memory leak of some kind perhaps that eventually
is triggering a cpu spike.

Modules associated with the process are all MS, except for some Symantec Internet Security drivers and files.

Any ideas?

Solutions to the Problem NT Kernel high cpu usage


Hi,
 
- Did you install or update the hardware drivers recently?
- Were any changes made to the computer prior to the issue?
 
 
To find out the cause behind this issue, let's place the computer in clean boot state and check if any program/service is triggering the CPU usage.
 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796
Note: Once done troubleshooting, place the computer back to normal state by following the steps mentioned in "How to return Windows to a normal startup mode".
 
 
Update all the drivers installed on the computer.
Download and install the latest drivers from the computer manufacturer website.
For info:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly
 
 
Also, run a virus scan on the computer from Safe mode with networking just to make sure there are no virus infections.
 
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/start-your-computer-in-safe-mode
 
Safety Scanner: 
http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx
Note: Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss.
 
 
Try these steps and let us know the outcome.
If you have any concerns, please do tell us.

No audio device installed - after installing windows 8.1 Pro

After I finally got the update done after numerous tries, my first problem (don't know how many will appear) is no audio.  The problem, according to some messages from troubleshoot is no audio device installed.
I go to HP to get the device, it downloads
and then says it can not be installed because the minimum requirements are not met (whatever that means).
I was just looking a something simple to play my cheap speakers.
