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 ...
A firm's capital structure is then the composition or 'structure' of its liabilities. For example, a firm that sells $20 billion in equity and $80 billion in debt is said to be 20% equity-financed and 80% debt-financed. The firm's ratio of debt to total financing, 80% in this example, is referred to as the firm's leverage . In reality, capital structure may be highly complex and include dozens of sources. Gearing Ratio is the proportion of the capital employed of the firm which come from outside of the business finance, e.g. by taking a short term loan etc. The Modigliani-Miller theorem , proposed by ...

You would have to purchase a full-size pickup truck to face the tsunami of decisions confronting Honda Civic buyers. Whittling down the grocery list of choices comprised of trim levels, engines, transmissions and body styles is a daunting endeavor indeed. Honda lists 12 sedan trim levels and 10 for the coupe before tossing transmission choices and alternative fueling setups into the mix. Nine grand separate the entry-level $16,165 DX Coupe with manual transmission from the $25,165 Sedan Si with navigation and performance tires. If you opt for either the natural gas GX or the Hybrid, you'll pay even more. Toward the upper ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Star triumvirate in Miami could be triple trouble down road
Or, next time downcourt, Wade slashing through the lane. Kicking it out to James at 22 feet. Whose shot instead becomes an alley-oop that Bosh goes improbably high to catch and finish. There's a version, too, among the dozens in which Bosh initiates the play and it's James or Wade throwing down two points on some thoroughly overmatched opponent. Essentially, if all three of the NBA's megastar, soon-to-be free agents were to sign with the Miami Heat, we could have the equivalent of gold-medal moments like that 82 times each season. And another 20-24 times in the postseason, unless this group got so good it needs ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
