Question 7 :
You just won a radio contest and find out your prize is four tickets to The 10 Sopranos Concert at Astor Theatre in Perth on 25th of September 2015 (Face value of the ticket is $69 each). Since you are not a fan of The 10 Sopranos, you have no intention to go to the concert. Yet, you find another option: two tickets to your favourite band of Celtic Woman’s The 10th Anniversary World Tour at Perth Arena in September (Face value of the ticket is $93 each). You did some research, and noticing that on eBay, tickets to The 10 Sopranos are being bought and sold for $55 apiece; tickets to your favourite Celtic Woman are being out and sold at $100 each.
a. What is the market value of each option?
b. Is there any profits you can make to execute any possible transactions by comparing these two options?
c. How are you going to evaluate your options?
d. By looking at this real example, how can you link the value principles to the decision faced by the firm?
a. “It is well telling companies to maximize net present value, but net present value is an abstract notion. What I tell my managers is that profits are what matters and it’s profits that we are going to maximize.”
b. “It is no good telling me to maximize my share price. I can take a short-run view and maximize today’s price. What I would prefer is to keep it on a gently rising trend.”
In the article of “The SEC v. Goldman Sachs_ Reputation Trust and Fiduciary Duties”, Solomon, Morison, and Wilhelm Jr. (2012) describe the controversial involvement of Goldman Sachs in a mortgage-backed securities deal in 2006. When this involvement was revealed, the capital market reacted negatively: Goldman Sachs’ share price closed down more than 13% on the day, and the market value fell overnight about $10 billion. This was far more than any fine that might have been imposed. Please explain. (Hint: please don’t answer this question from a law perspective, but from a finance perspective) The published article is attached in the Assessment Section for your reference.
