    A Study on the Zero-Level Approach to Assets Pricing in Incomplete Markets
    CHEN Jin-long
    2004, (2):  1-5. 
    Abstract ( 1676 )   PDF (2171KB) ( 1475 )   Save
    The approach of zero-level pricing of a nonmarketed asset is to find the price such that a certain investor with special utility function and wealth will select the new asset included in his optimal portfolio at the zero-level.In other words,the optimal portfolio would not change at the price when the new asset presents.In this paper,the idea and characters of zero-level pricing will be introduced,which were presented by Lenberger and other researchers.After comparing this approach with e-arbitrage methods,we point out that the two approaches are the same under the condition of partially complete markets.

    2004, (2):  22-26. 
    Abstract ( 1897 )   PDF (848KB) ( 2271 )   Save
    This paper presents a real option pricing model based on information-theory. It depends on historical data and investor’s experience to estimate the option price of a project or production,as a result it avoids the problem caused by traditional option pricing models which heavily rely on the choice of parameters and many assumptions.Furthermore,in this paper,the author also discusses the relationship between this model and the traditional option pricing model,and reasonably explains the importance of information in the investment decision Finally,the applicaition value of this model is illustrated by using an example.

    Commodities futures index,first as an economic indicator,second as a financial derivative tool,it is helpful for government department,investor and investigator to hold and grasp commodity price.Therefore,we bring forward the index compilation method according with the real condition of China and figure out the raw material industrial index.The conclusings have drawn,the Chinas raw material industrial index circulates normally,the Granger causality is existing from China’s raw material industrial index to PPI,the former leads the latter by three months.Since the China’s raw material industrial index reflects the price fluctuations of raw material industrial products,it could be a indicator to monitor the industrial boom of our country.Ultimately,the author suggests that the government administration should put the raw material industrial index into the Shanghai Futures Exchange as a financial derivative investable tool with a feasible plan.

    Abstract ( 1984 )   PDF (1802KB) ( 1430 )   Save
    Reducing inventory levels of raw materials,work-in-process,and finished items simultaneously in different stages has become the major focus for supply chain management.In recent years,there has been a growing trend in both research work and practical applications of VMI(vendor-managed-inventory)policy for various industries.In this paper,an integrated inventory model is proposed for a single deteriorating item,a single vendor and multiple different buyers and common cycle time in all buyers.A numerical example is provided to illustrate the theory of the problem.

    Abstract ( 1963 )   PDF (1862KB) ( 1408 )   Save
    Exercising optimal control on the internal stochastic inventory systems is essential to elevating the coordination of supply chain.We develop a practical model of optimal control on stochastic inventory system by considering the time-limited free backorders,which is usually a common phenomenon in the practical inventory activities,and the impact on optimal inventory law of stochastic factors,e.g.,return of sold goods,spoilage of stocked items,etc.And then,we obtain the optimal control law explicitly with the aid of dynamic programming.In addition,we give the numerical examples and illustrations.The results of this paper would provide theoretical evidence for making decisions on the inventory management and would make special reference further to elevating the coordination of supply chain.

    Abstract ( 1989 )   PDF (1249KB) ( 1992 )   Save
    A policy of coordinating inventory by common replenishment periods for a kind of lot-for-lot supply chain is studied and analyzed.In this supply chain,a supplier provides a single product to a single retailer who experiences stochastic demand.Under the proposed policy,the supplier specifies common replenishment periods.The supplier offers the retailer a price discount while the retailer’s replenishment period is in harmony with the supplier’s.It’s regarded as a Stackelberg game.After an approach to the game is developed,a numerical study is conducted and the benefit of applying the policy under certain conditions is analyzed.

    Fund managers say they can outperform market and get more excess return. This point has empirically been supported by the existing literatures in China. Using measure of Jensen,this paper studied 54 close-end funds by using weekly data and monthly data with longer sample period,the conclusion suggests fund managers do worse than a random selection policy,and they have no ability to forecast the future about individual stock or market.

    Abstract ( 2151 )   PDF (1526KB) ( 1771 )   Save
    Market share is one of the most important aspects that companies pay their attention to. However, Chinese companies always tend to lower the price of their products in order to increase market share. In this article, we firstly describe the effects of customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and price that exert on market share in terms of customer satisfaction theory. Where after, we carry out an experiential analysis by using data of seven Chinese family electric appliances industries and draw following conclusions: Price exerts some influences on market share, but the pivotal factors of increasing market share are improving customer loyalty, customer satisfaction, customer brand image perception and customer product and service perception.

    In this paper, we above all present the concept of the degree of willingness to cooperate (DWC) based on relative game-theoretic concept from viewpoint of psychology. On the base of the consideration of member characteristic and history information, we build up DWC model on dynamic evolution of group, which surmounts the localization of the neglect of history information, group member characteristic, and their desire and of the absence of initiative interpretation about cooperation-competition-conflict. By that we open out the process of strategy adjustment and interaction of group member before attain equilibrium. In order to show its value in application, we engage in simulation study on DWC model involved with circumstance and continency and givea detail analysis about simulation result.

    Based on the present theories of buffer operators, we established the GAWBO(Geometric Average Weakening Buffer Operator), WAWBO (Weighted Average Weakening Buffer Operator), and WGAWBO (Weighted Geometric Average Weakening Buffer Operator) and so on, which all have the universality and practicability. At the same time, we studied their some characters and inherent relation between them, and effectively resolves the questions, which often come forth in modeling forecasting of disturbed data sequence by shock wave and there are some contradictions between the quantity result and the qualitative analysis.

    firms are bounded rationally in the market.So they make production decisions not only based on the marginal profit of current period but on the marginal profits of many continuous periods.The paper studies the influence of the delay on the system and finds that the stable region of Nash equilibrium is enlarged,which offers a realistic way to realize the control of the period doubling bifurcations.Meanwhile,when two parameters,adjusting speed and weighted factor,satisfy certain conditions,other complicated dynamical behaviors such as Hopf bifurcation will occur at the Nash equilibrium.Delayed decision rule can improve the system performance and has great influence on the market competition.

    A critical problem for transferring R&D(Research and Development)achievements from the party of R&D to the party of obtainment is how to ensure the interest of the former.This paper considers the designment of transference contracts based on game theory and quantitative analysis.We provide three types of contracts which are expressed normally in the quantitative way and are incentive compatible for the target that the party of obtainment performs its obligations willingly.The incentive compatibility of each type of the contracts is demonstrated respectively.The designed contracts are corresponding to three common situations in practice.For two of these situations, we also discuss the designment of the contracts with optimal efficiency for a double target,which is stimulating the party of obtainment to perform its obligations and maximizing the revenue of the party of R&D.The conditions of incentive compatibility with optimal efficiency in each situation are obtained.
