Week 3 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Pathbuilder is being used in this course and this discussion is currently locked. Prior to beginning work on this discussion you must complete the Capital Markets, Leverage and Risk of Common Stock, Capital Market Imperfections and Capital Structure, Taxes and Bankruptcy Costs in Debt Capacity, Agency Prbolems, Signlaing, and Transactions Costs, and Pecking-Order Theory modules in the RealizeIt platform. Once the modules are completed and this information has been transferred into the course gradebook this discussion will unlock and you will be able to submit your initial post to the forum.
(Please note that some modules will have prerequisites that must be completed first. You are highly encouraged to start your RealizeIt work early in order to ensure that you have plenty of time to successfully complete all required modules prior to the due dates for your assigned work. If you do not complete any work in the RealizeIt platform, the grade returned from RealizeIt will be a Zero.)
View the Capital Budgeting Lecturevideo, which provides some factors that should be considered in capital budgeting considerations.
Imagine the producers of this video ask you to appear in the video to offer two additional considerations in capital budgeting decisions. One consideration must be quantitative (numeric). The other must be qualitative (non-numeric). Write a script to describe capital budgeting considerations that you think are important for managers to consider. Your script should be 200 to 250 words.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Respond to at least two classmates by sharing whether you agree or disagree with their view of capital budgeting considerations. Is there further support you can offer your classmate on their consideration?
Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
