In the video segment, you will watch an interview with two great investors
of the twentieth century. Imagine you are Harry Reasoner, and you are
allowed to ask Peter Lynch one question about market risk, discount rates,
or the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). What question would you
ask? Why do you feel that is an important question?
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Respond to
at least two classmates. For one classmate response, answer the question
that they have posed to Peter Lynch as if you were speaking for Peter
Lynch. In your second classmate response, share whether you agree or
disagree with a classmate’s answer to the Peter Lynch question.
Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 2

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.
Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your
discussion will be evaluated.
Cost of Capital
Corporations often use different costs of capital for different operating
divisions. Using an example, calculate the weighted cost of capital
(WACC). What are some potential issues in using varying techniques for
cost of capital for different divisions? If the overall company weighted
average cost of capital (WACC) were used as the hurdle rate for all
divisions, would more conservative or riskier divisions get a greater share
of capital? Explain your reasoning. What are two techniques that you could
use to develop a rough estimate for each division’s cost of capital? Your
initial response 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 the use of the company’s capital. Explain your reasoning.

Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Journal
Risk and Return
We examined two very important topics in finance this week: risk and
return. To summarize our discussion of the tradeoffs involved with risk and
return, view the Evaluating Business Performance: Small Business Case

Critically reflect on the importance of the risk and return balance. Consider
the following:
• Can we ever have any return without some type of risk?
• If you take on a large risk, are you guaranteed a large return? Why or
why not?
• What other factors play into risks that are not covered in the video?
• When have you had to consider risk and return in personal or
professional decision-making?

Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Assignment
Identifying and Managing Risk
In this assignment, you will compare and evaluate risk management
techniques from experts in the field. Go to the Ashford University Library
and find one article by Dr. James Kallman. Dr. Kallman, an expert in the
field of risk management, has written many articles on managing financial
risk. Find a second article in the Ashford University Library from another
credible author of your choice who also provides recommendations for risk
management.
Develop a three- to four-page analysis (excluding the title and reference
pages), of the techniques Dr. Kallman has identified for managing risks. In
this analysis, compare Dr.Kallman’s techniques to the techniques
recommended in the second article you researched. Explain why you
agree or disagree with each authors’ recommendations. Describe other
factors you believe should be considered in risk management. The
assignment should be comprehensive and include specific examples. The
paper should be formatted according to APA.
You must cite at least two scholarly sources, in addition to the text, from
the Ashford University Library, one being an article by Dr. Kallman.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to
evaluate your assignment.
