Is your industry growing or shrinking, is it consolidated or fragmented?

Instructions:
Use the diagramming tool to create a value chain map of either the personal computer laptop industry or the commercial aircraft manufacturing industry with the structure presented in class, keep it simple, and limit the map to 20 to 35 nodes.
You’ll want to start with the material suppliers on the left and move through the external value chain to the customers on the far right side of the value chain map. Consider what do the top two or three vendors do to make, assemble, sell, and support their products and what companies are in their supply chain (to the left) or their distribution chain (to the right)?
Using your industry map you just created find the total revenue of as many nodes in your map as possible.
Determine the leading firms in each node and using Google searches find the Revenue for each firm and sum those to get the total revenue value of each node (you can use, and mix, either 2019, 2020 or 2021 numbers).
See if you can determine the Economic Value Add of your industry from the data on your map (hint: it is not the sum of the revenues).
Find the total Unit Shipments from Google searches, or other sources, and determine the Average Selling Price for the final product.
Is your industry growing or shrinking, is it consolidated or fragmented?
Notate your findings on your value chain map.
Please submit your assignment via Canvas as a PDF file.
hint you might you Lucidchart to do the diagram

Evaluate the most likely effects of the following events on the investor’s investment objectives, constraints, and financial plan.

Q.1. In a report dated December 15, 2004, the Office of Economic Analysis of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) compared trade execution quality on the NYSE and NASDAQ using a matched sample of 113 pairs of firms. The comparison is based on six months of data from January to June 2004. The results regarding which market has the better execution quality (NYSE or NASDAQ) vary across order size, firm size, and order type. The results below are for small market orders (100–499 shares) in shares of large market capitalization firms. Spread (cents)
NASDAQ
NYSE
Quoted spread
2.737
2.791
Effective spread
2.650
2.490
On the basis of the above results, address the following:
Determine whether dealers in NASDAQ shares and dealers (‘‘specialists’’) in NYSE shares in the particular market being discussed provided price improvements.
B. Contrast the relative performance of dealers in the two markets with regard to any price improvements. Q.2. Consider some stocks that trade in two markets, with a trader being able to trade in these stocks in either market. Suppose that the two markets are identical in all respects except that bid–ask spreads are lower and depths (the number of shares being offered at the bid and ask prices) are greater in one of the two markets. State in which market liquidity-motivated and information-motivated traders would prefer to transact. Justify your answer. Q.3. Evaluate the most likely effects of the following events on the investor’s investment objectives, constraints, and financial plan. A childless working married couple in their late 20s adopts an infant for whom they hope to provide a college education. An individual decides to buy a house in one year. He estimates that he will need $102,000 at that time for the down payment and closing costs on the house. The portfolio from which those costs will be paid has a current value of $100,000 and no additions to it are anticipated. A foundation with a €150,000,000 portfolio invested 60 percent in equities, 25 percent in long-term bonds, and 15 percent in absolute return strategies has approved a grant totaling €15,000,000 for the construction of a radio telescope observatory. The foundation anticipates a new contribution from a director in the amount of €1,000,000 toward the funding of the grant.
Q.4. Duane Rogers, as chief investment officer (CIO) for the Summit PLC defined-benefit pension scheme, has developed an economic forecast for presentation to the plan’s board of trustees. Rogers projects that U.K. inflation will be substantially higher over the next three years than the board’s current forecast. Rogers recommends that the board immediately take the following actions based on his forecast: Revise the pension scheme’s investment policy statement to account for a change in the U.K. inflation forecast.
Reallocate pension assets from domestic (U.K.) to international equities because he also expects inflation in the U.K. to be higher than in other countries. Initiate a program to protect the pension scheme’s financial strength from the effects of U.K. inflation by indexing benefits paid by the scheme. State whether each recommended action is correct or incorrect. Justify each of your responses with one reason .

The Social ProblemWhat is the social problem you will examine?
History of the Problem When did the problem first emerge historically? Severity of the IssueStatistics on the issue. Who is impacted by this issue?
Policy StrategiesWhat policy(ies) will you examine? At what level of government has this policy been enacted? Has this policy been a success or failure, why?
ArgumentWhat is the paper’s primary argument/thesis? This will change oer time but describe your initial thoughts here.
Annotated SourcesPlease provide at least at least 8 scholarly sources you will use in your discussion. The articles should come from appropriate sources (peer reviewed journal, research/position papers of legitimate think tanks or research centers, government documents may be appropriate as well). Sources should be in APA style.

Describe how widespread the issue or problem is, whom it effects directly and indirectly, and where it geographically exists, along with trends in its size and composition through time (for this you can interview a stakeholder who is knowledgeable about the issue, use the census or other secondary data-contact some state agencies for state data and federal websites for federal data);
Identify a policy trail so that contemporary stakeholders understand what prior efforts have been made to address it—at different levels of government and in the private and public sectors—and in different locations, such as, such as in several states or urban areas; identify how public official and residents have viewed the social policy or issue, as well as their prior attempts to address or resolve it—including ideological, partisan, and other cleavages that have surfaced as the policy trail has evolved;
Identify a promising policy option that might currently be considered in terms of its merit in addressing the social problem or issue, as well as its political feasibility. Scholarly quality of references is stressed. The paper must comply with the APA format.

What challenges do you anticipate during data collection and reporting?

Many
healthcare organizations use surveys to collect data for conducting
marketing research. To be effective, however, surveys must be carefully
designed and adequately validated, and administered. If consumers do not
understand the survey questions or why they need to answer them, the
resulting data will not help organizations in their marketing efforts.
For this assignment, you use the best practices of survey design to
create a patient satisfaction survey. To prepare:
Consider
that you work in the healthcare marketing department of a major
healthcare organization. The chief marketing officer of the organization
has asked you to conduct market research on patient service
satisfaction. You have been instructed to create and administer a
patient satisfaction survey. With this in mind, consider the types of
questions you might ask patients, how you might administer the survey,
and challenges during data collection.
The Assignment
Part I:
Using best practices of survey design, create a 15-question patient satisfaction survey.
Note: The survey questions must be closed-ended.
Part II:
Then, write 1–2 pages that address the following:
Why did you write the particular questions that you wrote?
How do you plan to administer the survey?
What challenges do you anticipate during data collection and reporting?
