Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show that different methodologies may lead to different implications about the validity of the pecking order theory. Design/methodology/approach – Using data from Greek firms as a starting-point, the paper first investigates whether they follow the financing pattern implied by the pecking order theory and then illustrates that conclusions concerning the pecking order should be carefully shaped by researchers, as the methodology used can be misleading. Two different information sources are used; the first is data derived from the financial statements of the Greek firms listed in the ...

Assignment 9
So increasing debt and equity, would maximise company’s value and in turn maximise shareholder’s value and market value. Substituting market value V = B + S, (where B=debt, S=equity) into shareholder’s all wealth W = S + M, (where M=shareholder’s other wealth). New equation for shareholder’s weath: W = (V-B) + M Therefore, ∆W = (∆V-∆B) + ∆M, ⇨ ∆B = ∆M, implies changing debt, indirectly changes shareholder’s wealth. ⇨ ∆V = ∆W, implies theoretically changing market value, changes shareholder’s all wealth. Since management’s ... market research, surveys and trends

Soil is soul of the garden
I felt like a golden retriever trying to grasp Einstein's theory. It was during a master gardener class about soil. As Bill Clark lectured about the Cation Exchange, I realized I was the only golden in the room. Everyone else was nodding knowingly. At lunchtime, I hid in my car and cried. Boo hoo. But you don't have to understand the dreaded Cation Exchange (pronounced cat-iron) to garden. No. People use computers, cell phones, even battery-operated garage door openers and have no clue as to how they work. Here is what you should know about soil. It is Very Important. If you have good soil, you will have a better ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Bills should name Edwards starting QB
If this coaching thing doesn’t work out, Chan Gailey ought to consider a second career at the World Series of Poker. After a summer full of minicamps and OTAs at One Bills Drive, the Buffalo head coach has given no indication whom he considers the favorite in the three-horse race to be the Opening Day signal caller. Will it be Trent Edwards, the fourth-year pro whose once-promising career has been derailed by injuries and a general skittishness in the pocket? The veteran Ivy League product, Ryan Fitzpatrick? Might Buffalo roll on the dice on Brian Brohm, a standout at Louisville that has yet to make an impact at the pro level? market trends, news research and surveys resources

Perplexing Situation
A link is a vote that the linked to page is in fact higher in the pecking order than the linked from page for the terms used as link text etc. That's not really a viable explanation. If Google thinks that URL B is authoritative enough to fling URL A into the listings quite high, then it is reason to say the URL B would at least exist in the listings. However, URL B is nowhere to be seen. Since URL B does not exist, Google has certainly concluded that the content on there is not reliable, and that URL B is not good for users. Why would Google consider a link more trustworthy than the content? And if Google does consider a ...
Why is it that women are paid less than men for ...
Well firstly, in some professions that gap varies – some professions allow a woman to make 70 cents per a man’s dollar, others 90 cents per a man’s dollar. I read this gets further complicated by race with Hispanic women making as little as 58 cents per a man’s dollar in some jobs. Why? Archaic policy and thinking plus BS people will give you about how a woman isn’t a good a bet as a man since she might have a baby and then demand to care for that baby sometimes and a man clearly doesn’t give a shit about having babies or parenting…riiight. Personally, I am disgusted to even describe ...
