Problem 2-29
Yes, a firm with positive net income can run out of cash. It could run out of cash if it spends too much on financing activities. For an example a company could pay too much of a dividend, pay off too much long term debt, or buying back too many shares of stock.

Problem 2-30
a) Current Ratio = Current Assets/Current Liabilities
$51.94B / 33.06B = 1.5711
b) Quick Ratio = (Cash and Cash Equivalent + Marketable Securities + Accounts Receivables) / Current Liabilities
($27.65B + 14.30B) / 33.06B = 1.2689
c) Cash Ratio = (Cash and Cash Equivalent + Invested Funds) / Current Liabilities
$27.65B / 33.06B = .8364
d) Apple has more liquid assets than Dell relative to current liabilities

Problem 2-31
a) Accounts Receivable Days = ((Accounts Receivable / (Sales/365)) 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Accounts Receivable 86.1 76.9 69.8 69.8 88.6
Sales 604.1 510.7 424.6 363.8 404.3
Sales / 365 1.65507 1.39918 1.16329 .9967 1.1077
Accounts Receivable Days 52.02 54.96 60.00 70.03 79.99
The accounts receivable period has decreased every year since 2009. This essentially means that it is taking Mydeco less time/days to collect its account receivables. This is a positive thing for the company.

b) Inventory Days = ((Inventory / (Sales/365)) 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Inventory 35.3 31.7 28.4 30.9 33.7
Sales 604.1 510.7 424.6 363.8 404.3
Sales / 365 1.65507 1.39918 1.16329 .9967 1.1077
Inventory Days 21.33 22.66 24.41 31.00 30.42
More the most part the Inventory Days has decreased every year which means Mydecco is becoming more efficient in converting its inventory into sales. This is a positive thing for the company.

c) Current Ratio = (Current Assets – Liabilities) 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Current Assets 206.4 186.1 184.5 169.6 171.1
Current Liabilities 41.4 34.9 29 24.3 25.4
Current Ratio 165 151.2 155.5 145.3 145.7

Module 2 Homework

...Module 2 Homework Risk Management and Health Care Regulations Angie Martinez Grand Canyon University Module 2 Homework 1) There are several processes involved in a wrongful discharge. This is a fairly new and quickly expanding area that involves litigation, and this is an area that employers would rather avoid. About 65%-70% of worker’s are thought to be employees at will which means that an employer may fire an employee at any time for any reason, as long as the reason is lawful (Kavaler & Spiegel, 2003, p. 57). In order to avoid litigation employers push for arbitration to assist in settling cases. State laws determine if arbitration is allowed (Kavaler & Spiegel, 2003, p. 58). The risk management director will explore whatever legal avenues available to prevent litigation. Employers must keep a paper trail for problem employees that way if an employee gets fired; it will be considered fair because there is documentation. This is a part of due process. To simplify due process, it basically means steps that have to be followed before an employee can be terminated. It is the job of human resources to ensure that each and every step is followed. In a court case the employee will most likely win if due process is not followed. Due process is coupled with progressive disciplinary procedures (Grand Canyon University). There is only one way of avoiding wrongful dismissal, it is to do the right thing. 2) Three diverse discrimination theories lie beneath the......

...Phil Bohrer, NT1330 Unit 2 homework. 4/02/12 Assignment 1: DHCP Troubleshooting. Check the workstations using ipconfig /all and find out if the ip range is within the address range you assigned, if it is a different address then the workstation failed to contact the DHCP server and has gone into apipa mode. The Network Interface Card might be assigned an incorrect driver. Another possible cause of the problem is that the patch cable is not plugged into the Network Interface Card, or is not connected to a switch on the other end. However, it could be that the server has run out of IP addresses that it can assign to clients. You can easily tell if this is the problem by comparing the size of the DHCP address scope to the number of devices on your network that request IP addresses from the DHCP server. But since only some of the workstations have got addresses the problem might be the DHCP server. Start off by doing some ping tests to verify that the DHCP server is able to communicate across the network. If the DHCP server is able to communicate with other computers on the network, then I recommend verifying that the DHCP server has an IP address that is compatible with the scope that the server is configured to assign addresses from. The server itself has to be assigned a static address in the same subnet range, such as If this still doesn’t solve the problem make sure that the DHCP server is still authorized by the Active Directory to lease IP addresses.

I am starting my own business so this interests me as to how the credit scores are reported to the consumers. 2. The proposal makes the creditors to disclose the credit score information to the consumers when a credit score is used in setting or adjusting credit terms. Also consumers who receive the notice can obtain a free credit report to check the report’s accuracy. As an alternative to providing the notice, the Rule permits creditors to provide credit applicants with a free credit score and information about their score. 3. The agencies should provide additional information related to credit scores to the risk-based pricing notices. Specifically, the risk-based pricing notice include an explanation that the consumer does not have a single credit score, and that the credit score may vary with the consumer reporting agency and a particular credit product for which the consumer applied. Most consumers need this information to help them understand why they are receiving a particular score that may not be the same as a FICO score. 4. All the comments must be received by 04/14/10 and comments on he Paperwork Reduction Act analysis set forth in Section III.A. of this Federal Register notice must be received on or before May 16, 2011. 5. a. 1.
