Abstract Sponsoring a Super Bowl is a considerably large investment for companies given the unprecedentedly high cost of advertisement during this event. An event study is necessary to analyze the commitment of large investments of sponsoring companies and its effect on the companies’ stock prices. This particular event study tests these effects on sponsors of Super Bowl XLVII that took place in February of 2013. The results indicate a favorable impact leading up to event with little movement of returns days thereafter the announcement date, thus supporting the semi-strong form of market efficiency.

Research Problem
The most common way to test the efficiency of the market is with an event study. An event should be chosen that has a quantifiable impact that can be theoretically justified to ensure a proper test of the market. The event this project will analyze is Super Bowl XLVII. This event took place February 3, 2013 in New Orleans with a matchup of the AFC Champions Baltimore Ravens and NFC Champions San Francisco 49ers. This event can be theoretically justified because of the expected favorable returns sponsors of Super Bowl XLVII would experience due to the high popularity and broadcasts of the event. By conducting several experimental tests throughout this study, it will be proven if the event provided new and significant information to the market. Evaluating stock prices for the company cannot be used as the only measure of how much impact an event had for three reasons (Bacon, 9/11). First, while the event researched took place, other stock price changing events could have occurred within the firm. Second, the…...

...ll Why Does a Stock's Price Rise or Fall? Introduction Watching the ups and downs of stock prices can be enough to make you seasick. If you own stocks, you've undoubtedly followed their prices with a feeling of either satisfaction or disappointment, depending on how your investments have done. Short-term swings can be bewildering, and sometimes it seems as though stock prices follow a logic all their own. Even so, it is possible to break down stock performance in ways that help distinguish solid growth from inflated expectations. Case Study in Rising Prices: Wal-Mart A stock's price is determined by its fundamentals (how the company has actually performed) combined with its valuation (how much the market is willing to pay for that performance and the promise of future growth). Similarly, when a stock's price goes up, that rise comes from either (1) growth in the underlying business or (2) an increase in the stock's valuation, as the market becomes more optimistic about the company's future. As an illustration of these two drivers of stock performance, consider the history of Wal-Mart WMT. In the 1970s and 1980s, Wal-Mart was the quintessential growth stock. It was profitable, with returns on equity consistently above 20%. Year after year, its revenue and earnings grew by more than 25%, often by more than 30%, as it opened new stores all over the country. As a result of this consistent growth, the annualized return of Wal-Mart's stock from 1970 to 1990......

Impact of Dividend on Stock Price

...“IMPACT OF DIVIDEND ON STOCK PRICES” ABSTRACT The project aims to establish the impact of dividend on market price of a share. This has been done for individual companies in Steel sector. After studying the basic concepts of dividends and dividend policy I am able to get a proper perspective of the requirements of the project and also gain a better understanding of the results obtained. I have looked to find the relation between pre dividend price change and the dividend using regression analysis. Similarly, I have analyzed the relation between the post dividend price change and the dividend. It is a matter of fact that dividends are declared by a company primarily to generate capital and also at certain times to maintain the market sentiment. It is in the best interests of the company to maximize the market value of its share and companies use dividend as a tool to maintain their corporate image. However, the degree of correlation between the dividend and the market price is low which implies that several other internal and external factors affect the market value of shares. To gain a holistic picture, I also did a comparative study of two peers in a sector (steel)to better understand how the specific requirements of each sector also impact the dividend policy of a company. The conclusions derived from the analysis performed further consolidated theoretical knowledge and deviations were better understood. SYNOPSIS “Impact......

“Affect of Gold Prices on the Stock Market of Pakistan"

... the designs and the sizes of golden jewels are more important than the price and they are willing to pay any amount for the jewelry they fall in love with. Gold has always been the first love for every woman and many men since the advent of civilization as much as it is today. In the middle ages, it was exchanged for the commodity to be sold or bought rather than currency. The value of this element in Pakistan, before the arrival of the British Regime, was also measured in the similar way. There was a time when the prices in one country were entirely divergent from another, which made it a premium metal for international trade. Because of the rise of mutual trade, universally integrated banking system and interdependent economies, the rates of this precious element have got prime importance in the global scenario. The gold rates in Pakistan vary according to the purity of its karats. In many European countries, the prices are determined according to the Millesimal fineness scale, which is getting in vogue as a new method of measuring the purity and prices of gold. KARACHI: Investors diversify their investments by including gold to maintain a stable portfolio. The commodity offers a strong hedge against falling interest rates, uncertain economic conditions, currency devaluation and losses incurred on other investments. Gold gave a mind numbing 897% return to investors over the last ten years. Its price increased from Rs6,280 per tola in 2002 to Rs62,600 per tola in......

Lognormal Stock-Price Models

...sense of . . . LogNormal stock-price models in Exams MFE/3 and C/4 James W. Daniel Austin Actuarial Seminars http://www.actuarialseminars.com June 26, 2008 c Copyright 2007 by James W. Daniel; reproduction in whole or in part without the express permission of the author is forbidden. Foreword This document briefly describes the ideas behind the use of LogNormal models for stock prices in some of the material for Exams MFE and C of the Society of Actuaries and Exams 3 and 4 of the Casualty Actuarial Society. Not a traditional exam-prep study manual, it concentrates on explaining key ideas so that you can then understand the details presented in the textbooks or study manuals. It can be especially useful to anyone taking Exam C/4 without having studied the material for Exam MFE/3. 2 Chapter 1 LogNormal stock-price models 1.1 Why LogNormal models? Why learn about and use LogNormal models for stock prices? I could answer “Because it’s on the exam syllabi” or “Why not?”, but that wouldn’t be helpful. Instead, I’ll take a little space to motivate this. Suppose that the price of a stock or other asset at time 0 is known to be S(0) and we want to model its future price S(10) at time 10—note that some texts use the notation S0 and S10 instead. Let’s break the time interval from 0 to 10 into 10,000 pieces of length 0.001, and let’s let Sk stand for S(0.001k), the price at time 0.001k. I know the price S0 = S(0) and want to model the price S10000 = S(10). I can......

How Crude Oil Price Affect Gas Prices

...How Crude Oil Prices Affect Gas Prices Crude oil prices make up 71% of the price of gasoline. The rest of what you pay at the pump depends on refinery and distribution costs, corporate profits, and Federal taxes. Usually, these costs remain stable, so that the daily change in the price of gasoline accurately reflects oil price fluctuations. (Source: EIA, FAQ, December 6, 2013) It usually takes about six weeks for oil price changes to work their way through the distribution system to the gas pump. Oil prices are a little more volatile than gas prices. This means oil prices might rise higher, and fall farther, than gas prices. Historical Oil and Gas Prices: Oil and gas prices have been especially volatile since the 2008 financial crash. Here's a look at their peaks and valleys, and what caused the price swings. * 2014 - Prices remained around $100/barrel. That's because the U.S. has plenty of shale oil. 2013 - Oil rose swiftly to $118.90/barrel on February 8, sending gas prices to $3.85 by February 25. Prices had started rising earlier than normal thanks to Iran's threatening war games near the Straits of Hormuz. What Causes High Oil Prices?: Like most of the things you buy, oil prices are affected by supply and demand. More demand, like the summer driving season, drives higher prices. There is usually less demand in the winter, since only the Northeast U.S. uses heating oil. However, oil prices are also affected by oil price futures, which are traded on the......

How Do Certain Economic Factors Affect Stock Prices?

...How Do Certain Economic Factors Affect Stock Prices? Introduction For our analysis, we chose to examine how different economic factors such as GDP, CPI, and unemployment affect stock prices. More specifically, we analyzed how these economic factors affected the stock prices of three different companies during the period from 2000-2009. The three companies that we chose were Exxon Mobil, Tiffany & Co, and Southwest Airlines. We chose those particular companies because each one offers products or services that represent a different degree on the price elasticity of demand spectrum. Exxon Mobil represents a company that offers a good which is inelastic. This means that no matter what economic conditions are present in the market, the quantity demand for this product is going to stay constant since consumers feel they cannot live without it. On the other hand, Tiffany & Co. represents a company that sells products which are elastic. This means that consumers will choose to buy their products depending on the conditions present in the market. Southwest Airlines represents a company that offers a service which can be viewed as both inelastic and elastic depending on the type of travel being studied. For business travelers who are required to fly for their jobs, the service that Southwest Airlines provides is inelastic since they generally have no choice in whether they fly or not. On the other hand, there are travelers who view......

Price Affects Market Share

...How could price and place influence the market share of the backpack? (B) Analysis Impact of price on market share Price is the amount of money that a buyer gives to a seller in exchange for a good or a service (Asmundson, 2013, Para.1). Pricing is one important factor from marketing mix which can affect the market share, because consumers always use price consideration to determine whether they will buy or not. A company using a successful price strategy can increase the market share as well as success in business. (Victoriagov, 2014). “Price skimming means a product pricing strategy by which a firm charges the highest initial price that customers will pay. ”(Investopedia, 2009) It is better to enter the market at a high price point to take advantage of early sales before competitors begin replicating the product or service being offered. In round 1, the initial price was $80, However, the sales quantity was 12 and market share was only 4%. This evidence indicates that the demand for backpack is price elastic and consumers are sensitive to price. As Wei’s (2013) explans, price elasticity of demand measures how much, in terms of percentage change, the quantity demanded responds to a change in price. The law of demand states that other factors being constant (cetris peribus), price and quantity demand of any good and service are inversely related to each other. The law states that as price goes down, quantity demanded goes up.(Gunderson, 2014) In round 2, the price was......

Predictability of Stock Price on Nigeria Stock Exchange

...economic development is the effective mobilization and allocation of scarce resources within an economy. These resources can be real or financial, but they are scarce and command a price. The establishment of effective and efficient channel for the mobilization and allocation of scarce financial resources is therefore essential. The financial market, comprising of the money and capital markets, occupies an important place in most economies of the world. The primary function of a financial market is to enable funds to be sufficiently allocated from the surplus units of the economy to the deficit units for productive investment. The greater the transmission efficiency is, the higher the rate of growth of the economy (Olowe, 1997). The money market trades only in securities or debt instruments maturing in less than twelve months, while in the capital market, longer term debts as well as equity instruments are traded. The complementarity between money market and capital market is necessary for a balanced development of the financial system. (NSE Fact Book 2010) The money market is a market for the mobilization, allocation and trading in short-term funds. It is, thus, a market for trading in short-term financial instruments. The major participants in the money market include individuals, companies, banks, discount houses and government. The capital market is a market for the mobilization and allocation of long-term funds by trading in long-term financial securities. It......

Relationship Between Stock Price and Futures

...The relationship between stock prices and exchange rates in China Mengyuan Chen Illinois Wesleyan University Dec 10, 2012 Abstract This paper uses the data of RMB exchange rates and stock market prices in China from 1994 to 2011 to estimate the relationship between stock prices and exchange rates. There are two major theories concerning the relationship. According to the portfolio balance effect, these two variables should be negatively related; in addition, according to the international trading effect theory, these two variables should be positively related. The linear regression model is adopted to observe the various relationships between stock and foreign exchange markets. The results confirmed my hypothesis, which indicates that the international trading effect is more dominant, thus the net effect is a positive causal relationship from exchange rates to stock prices. I. Introduction Within the emerging Chinese market, China now has more open policies and advanced financial market instruments to promote globalization. For example, China started to allow the RMB to float within a larger daily range in 2005 and brought derivative options into the stock market. These significant steps all suggest that China is beginning to face a new economic condition. For instance, the challenging policy making of RMB exchange rate is one. Exchange rates and stock prices are both key indicators of the economy and financial markets. So the relationship between those two becomes......
