Bank capital woes depress shares | - The digital ...
HA NOI — Benchmark indices on both of the nation’s stock exchanges declined sharply this past week, influenced by the pressure on commercial banks to increase their charter capital and meet stricter capital adequacy requirements.

On the Ha Noi Stock Exchange, meanwhile, the HNX-Index dropped by 7.69 per cent to end the week at 134.97.

Section 5: Mutual Fund Fees and Expenses
Mutual fund investing involves two primary kinds of fees and expenses: sales loads and ongoing expenses. Sales loads are one-time fees—paid directly by investors either at the time of share purchase (front-end loads) or, in some cases, when shares are redeemed (back-end loads). Ongoing fund expenses cover portfolio management, fund administration, daily fund accounting and pricing, shareholder services such as call centers and websites, distribution charges known as 12b-1 fees, and other miscellaneous costs of operating the fund.

Financial Ratio Explanations
It is difficult to infer organizational perfor­mance from one or two simple numbers.  Nevertheless, in practice a num­ber of different ratios are often calculated in strategic planning endeavors and, taken as a whole and with some caution, these ratios do provide some information about the relative performance of an organization.  In particu­lar, a careful analysis of a combination of these ratios may help you to dis­tinguish between firms that will eventually fail and those that will continue to survive.  Evidence suggests that, as early as five years before a firm fails, one may be able to ...
