Many traders think of stock market returns in terms of percentages — e.g., Mutual Fund ABC returned 10.2%/season during the last 10 years. However, if you ask me it is beneficial to approach topics from multiple points of view. In this article, we’ll take a look at historical currency markets returns in terms of dollars; it’s a particularly important perspective when doing pension planning.

In May, I posted a graph showing the historical range of DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) comes back for a variety of holding periods. That graph demonstrated the results for a theoretical investor who bought and kept the Dow for holding periods which range from one to one hundred years, reinvesting dividends for the whole time.

It appeared to show that the most severe case improved with each passing calendar year, and that historically the more years the investor kept onto his investment the less likely he was to reduce money. Graphs like that one are often used to show traders that, while the stock market is very risky for a while, the long-term trader faces much less risk. And that is true — in a sense.

It’s particularly true if the risk you are most worried about is the risk of losing money (measured by the end of the holding period). Let’s look again at exactly the same data, but from a different viewpoint. 10,000. However, of showing the utmost instead, minimum and average annual return for every holding period, the maximum is showed by it, average and minimum value of the portfolios at the final end of the keeping intervals.

2 million with debt at a before-tax rate of 8%. The taxes rate is 40%. How much cash does each firm go back to its investors. 2 million in income this year. 1 million in retained earnings. 0.5 million in debt. 833,333 each from maintained earnings, new personal debt and new stock. 1 million in new stock.

Investors need a higher return on common stock investments if a company uses less leverage. Other things the same, the utilization of debt financing reduces the firm’s total goverment tax bill, resulting in a higher total market value. Given the lifetime of personal bankruptcy and fees costs, the optimal capital framework is 100% personal debt. The Miller and Modigliani Capital Structure Theorem suggests that the price of equity decreases as financial leverage increases.

The objective of capital framework management is to increase the marketplace value of the firm’s collateral. Agency costs occur when managers choose the easiest form of financing over the value maximizing capital structure. The pecking order theory of capital structure indicates that firms prefer to finance investment opportunities with least expensive forms of funding first and the most expensive last. The trade-off theory of capital framework identifies the tax-shield benefit of debt financing, but also recognizes that the power is offset by costs associated with debts financing.

The taxes shield on interest is calculated by multiplying the interest rate paid on debt by the principal amount of the debt and the firm’s marginal tax rate. In the original version of the Modigliani and Miller capital structure theorem, as a company escalates the amount of debts in its capital framework, the cost of equity shall rise but the cost of capital will remain the same.
