Question:

What is the difference between a stock split and a stock dividend? Which is more favorable?

Answer:

A stock split happens when a company decides to divide the number of shares outstanding into smaller units. A common ratio in stock splits is 2:1, meaning while an individual owned one share of stock worth $20 pre-split, they now own two shares worth $10 each. A stock dividend is a payment made to a shareholder in the form of stock rather than cash. A company might choose to issue a stock dividend if they wish to use the cash that would otherwise be distributed for other purposes, such as investing in a new project. When evaluating which option is more favorable, the answer depends on the preferences of the shareholder. If the shareholder is looking to make a profit from cash dividends, a company issuing a stock split would be the more favorable option. If the shareholder is interested in a company with high growth potential, one option is not necessarily better than the other, because both result in the investor owning more shares of stock than previously.

Answer:

The four financial statements include the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flows, and Statement of Stockholders' Equity. When analyzing the health of a company, it is most common to use the Income Statement because it demonstrates the ability of the company to generate a profit.

Answer:

First, you want to assign letters to the variables. We use "D" for dog and "C" for cat. Next, you want to set up the relevant equations: "there are twice as many dogs as cats" can be written as D = 2C "there are 16 pets (cats and dogs)" can be written as C + D = 21 Having outlined the relevant equations, you want to plug the value of "D" into the second equation to make it easier to solve for one of the variables: C + 2C = 21 3C = 21 C = 7 There are 7 cats on the block. Knowing this, we can plug C = 7 back into our original equation, D = 2C. D = 2*7 D = 14 There are 14 dogs on the block.
