Description for case is given below :
This case follows the financial-statement forecasting decisions of a Deutsche Bank research analyst for the natural and organic retailer Whole Foods Market in May 2014. Students evaluate the associated financial ratios with the forecast to ascertain whether the industry dynamics and company strategy are consistent with the forecast. The case expressly focuses on the asset side of the balance sheet as a preview for other cases using free cash flow forecasting. The forecast exercise exposes students to the mechanics of financial statement modeling and sensitivity analysis. Using a supplementary exhibit, the case can also be used to explore techniques in firm valuation with students debating whether the analyst should recommend a “buy” or a “sell.”

Case ID :           UV7279
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    23 pages

Description for case is given below :
This case invites students to assess the impact that Brexit, the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, might have on a New York-based hedge fund’s portfolio and, specifically, its UK assets. The case is designed to prompt students to make market assumptions and investment hypotheses based on a combination of numerical data and qualitative information. It requires no numerical computations; instead, it asks the student to interpret both markets’ short-term reactions to the Brexit vote and strategy shifts from UK and European business leaders in order to evaluate longer-term implications for the economies of the United Kingdom, Europe, and the world.

WNG Capital LLC Case Solution

Case Solution & Analysis for WNG Capital LLC by Kenneth Eades, Dorothy C. Kelly, Michael Gangemi.

Complete Case details are given below :

Case Name :      WNG Capital LLC
Authors :           Kenneth Eades, Dorothy C. Kelly, Michael Gangemi
Source :             Darden School of Business
Case ID :           UV7263
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    10 pages
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
In late 2013, an analyst at WNG Capital LLC, Wenbo Su, must recommend whether the terms of a sale-and-leaseback deal are value adding for WNG. WNG was an operating lessor of used commercial aircraft manufactured by Airbus Group and Boeing Corporation. The lessee in the deal was a small private airline based in the United Kingdom. The essence of the transaction was to transform the airline from being the owner of certain aircraft in its fleet to being the lessee of the aircraft for the ensuing 12 months. The airline would have full use of the aircraft, but would not own the aircraft or have use of the aircraft after the end of the lease. The cash flows to all parties were complicated, and Su planned to conduct a thorough analysis of the proposed lease terms before making a recommendation to WNG’s CEO, Michael Gangemi. The student’s challenge is to assume Su’s role and develop a discounted cash flow analysis to estimate the NPV to WNG Capital. The broader discussion of the case prompts students to answer how the airline benefits from the deal. This analysis and discussion form the basis of understanding the value of leasing as a value-adding financial product.

Larry Puglia and the T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth Fund Case Solution

Case Solution & Analysis for Larry Puglia and the T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth Fund by Kenneth Eades, Dorothy C. Kelly.

Complete Case details are given below :

Case Name :      Larry Puglia and the T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth Fund
Authors :           Kenneth Eades; Dorothy C. Kelly
Source :             Darden School of Business
Case ID :           UV7288
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    20 pages
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Set in late 2016, this case recounts the remarkable performance record of Blue Chip Growth Fund (BCGF), a mutual fund managed by Larry Puglia at T. Rowe Price, Inc. The case describes the investment style of Puglia, whose record with BCGF had on average outperformed the S&P 500 since the inception of the fund in 1993. The tasks for the student are to assess the performance of the fund, consider the sources of its success, and decide on the sustainability of Puglia’s performance. Consistent with the introductory nature of the case, the analysis requires no numerical calculations. The instructor should not be deceived, however: the absorption of capital-market background and the implications of financial concepts in the case will fully occupy the novice. This case updates and replaces “Bill Miller and Value Trust” and “Peter Lynch and the Fidelity Magellan Fund”. The case is intended for use in the opening stages of a finance course. It provides a nontechnical introduction to the U.S. equity markets and lays the foundation for some basic concepts in finance.

Complete Case details are given below :

Case Name :      AT&T Versus Verizon: A Financial Comparison
Authors :           V.G. Narayanan, Joel L. Heilprinn
Source :             HBS Brief Cases
Case ID :           9-917-543
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    11 pages
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
This case asks students to prepare a report comparing the financial and operating performance of AT&T and Verizon. Taking the perspective of a communications industry analyst, they must also consider the differences between and implications of the companies’ business strategies and the differences between the technology and growth rates of the wireless and wireline business segments. As part of this exercise, students reorganize the balance sheets in terms of operating and financial components, calculate changes in working capital, derive un-levered free cash flow (FCF), and apply DuPont style ratios and margin analysis on a consolidated-as well as a segment-basis. Students must also consider the effects of actuarial gains and losses on operating results; and how analysts might adjust for those effects. The case was designed for first-year MBA students in financial statement analysis (FSA) and accounting classes, but it could also be used in other courses to prepare for discounted cash flow (DCF) exercises.

Case ID :           9B16N058 / W16695
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    12 pages
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
In April 2016, a large U.S. proprietary trading group in New York, with a significant fixed-income portfolio, was debating what discount rate to use to value the group’s interest-rate swap portfolio. The counterparties to these swaps were major banks, and the deals were collateralized. Criticisms about the use of the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) as a benchmark for valuing these swaps were circulating, and there were reports that LIBOR was being manipulated. There was talk about an alternative, nearly “risk-free” reference rate that could potentially be launched during 2016. Was it time for the trading group to substitute some of its maturing LIBOR-based interest-rate swaps with overnight index swaps.
