In an Efficient Capital Market prices reflect all relevant information. You cannot consistently earn excess or ‘abnormal’ profits.
Does this mean prices remain always the same and won’t move?
Random Walk - Security prices change randomly, with no predictable trends or patterns.
Technical Analysts - Investors who attempt to identify over- or undervalued stocks by searching for patterns in past prices.
Head and Shoulders Triple Tops
Fundamental Analysts - Analysts who attempt to find under- or overvalued securities by analyzing fundamental information, such as earnings, asset values, and business prospects.
Efficient market reaction
Days relativeto announcement day
Efficient market reaction: The price instantaneously adjusts to and fully reflects new information; there is no tendency for subsequent increases and decreases.Delayed reaction:The price partially adjusts to the new information; 8 days elapse before the price completely reflects the new informationOverreaction:The price over-adjusts to the new information; it “overshoots” the new price and subsequently corrects.
Debt and Equity
Assume 3 directors to be elected and you own 20 shares
Straight Voting: Directors are elected one at a time
You may cast all your votes for each member of the BOD
20 shares = 20 votes
Cumulative Voting: Directors are elected all at once
You may cast all your votes for one member of the BOD
# votes = # shares × # directors to be elected:
(20 shares) × (4 directors to be elected) = 60 votes
For cumulative voting if N directors are to be elected, it takes 1/(N+1) percent of the stock + 1 share to assure a deciding vote for one director
25% of the shares + 1 share will guarantee you one deciding vote for 1 director
