Tips for Effective Cross-Cultural Emails Email Share Sharebar 3 Email Share So what are the ingredients for successful email communications? MBS Dashboard - Pricing, Charts and Commentary There's not a lot of "updating" or commentary to be done when bond markets are behaving as expected. With that in mind, markets continue to trade as expected following this morning's initial move. Also to be expected is a general lack of big moves the day before NFP. Essentially, our best chance for a big move would have been a crazy ECB Announcement this morning, followed by crazy strong economic data, subsequently causing snowball selling in Treasuries and major spillover into MBS. Without that "stuff" in play, there's not much left to do apart from simply meandering noncommittally back into the previous range and waiting for NFP. If you remember the fireworks analogy from a few days back, our heads were turned to see what the kids were lighting off this morning, but it wasn't impressive enough to get us to move our chairs before the big show.

How to Use EBITDA to Value Your Company Looking to the future, can you envision a time when you might want to sell your business? "The best way to build a company is to build it as if you're going to sell it," says veteran entrepreneur and Inc. columnist Norm Brodsky. "It has to be built to last." One place to start measuring your company's potential value in a sale is determining your EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. It's certainly a mouthful, but the equation itself is really quite simple: subtract expenses from revenue (excluding interests and taxes) without depreciation and amortization (what you pay for tangible and intangible assets). The remaining number paints a basic picture of your profitability as well as your ability to pay off what it owes.

How to Comply With the New Revenue Recognition Rules Fusion-io, a fast-growing start-up based in Salt Lake City, needed a more efficient way to provide its investors and bankers with a clear picture of its revenues. The company, which launched in late 2005, makes cutting-edge flash storage memory devices and also provides year-long maintenance contracts. The old accounting rules required Fusion-io to spread out its recognition of the revenue for both product sales and maintenance throughout the life of the service contract, which didn't accurately reflect their revenue realities. So when the accounting standards were updated earlier this year, Fusion-io was quick to embrace them. These new accounting standards were developed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the non-profit group recognized by securities regulators in the U.S. to set accounting rules for public companies.
