Prepare a clear and concise paper that addresses the following questions/concepts. There is not a specific word count, but as a guide approximately 500 to 1,000 words. The Equity Paper should demonstrate your knowledge of the subject vs. quoting materials from various sources. We will be discussing these topics in class. I want to hear from each of you, thus avoid excessive citing of material from outside sources; explain the concepts in your own words. You do not need an introduction and make sure to label each section of the paper in accordance to the questions below.
- Why is it important to keep paid-in capital separate from earned capital?
- As an investor, is paid-in capital or earned capital more important? Explain why.
- As an investor, are basic or diluted earnings per share more important? Explain why.
