Choices on what to invest in are harder now than they were with double the options- stock picking is much more competitive because the companies left in the public market are old, big, easier to analyze, and more profitable Making it more difficult and less profitable E. Read “Mutual Banks Moving to Shareholder Owners (Item 15.6) and “Thrift Conversions Will Be Governed By Tighter Rules” (Item 15.7) and answer the following questions: 1. Why were thrifts mutuals in the first place? Have those reasons changed? Manager of mutual is compensated by a straight salary- no incentive for risk so you’ll play it safe unlike corporate Mutual is safer than corporate, for mutual to gain more funds they need to invest riskier They were a cooperative agent in the 19 th century, to help low income individuals who were shunned by commercial banks. Banks would only lend to merchants, not poor people o Regulations discouraged lending to small, usually unprofitable borrowers, also tax advantages to mutuals The banking system has now realized the gains of investing in lower income borrowers, and providing them a safe place to deposit their money 2. What are the advantages to a mutual thrift from converting to corporate form? Raising capital: making it easier to meet capital requirements o This would allow them to pad the losses on risky loans, perhaps allowing them to get involved in more high-yield risky investments Also makes transfers in ownership such as mergers, acquisitions and restructuring easier, encouraging growth This also provides a performance bond for managers in the same way as stock-options because managers can buy stocks like depositors, and the value of their shares depends on the performance of their bank 3. How would you estimate the value of an institution up for conversion? This is the job of underwriters You would have to look at their loan portfolios, the return on the loans they have given out, the costs of their deposits, basically looking at their book value Should also look at similar institutions If you were to estimate the value of its shares, you would have to look at its balance sheet and comparables (similar institutions). Mutuals can’t consolidate 4. Who are the pre-sale owners? To whom should the stock be sold? At what price should it be sold? What should happen to the proceeds of the sale?

Technically the mutual funds that are converting or have already converted The stock is sold to managers and depositors who are qualified. The second article recommended you also open the sale to employees 5 Why do institutions tend to be converted at less than their ultimate market value? [Hint: The proceeds of the sale are generally retained by the institution. How does this affect its market value?] Since managers are keeping a portion of the retained capital, the market value of the company is decreased o This is because capital is used to maintain production or help growth

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
