How did the failure of Bear Stearns affect stock prices?
In a simple sense, the failure of Bear Stearns had a negative effect on stock prices. When a major bank such as Bear Stearns (which had been in business since the great depression) fails, consumer confidence is lowered significantly. Investors lose confidence in the stock market as well. As they lose confidence, it is common to sell assets. As assets are sold, the entire market is flooded with supply. When the supply is very high and the demand is very low, stock prices are forced down.

Answer . Paying a dividend costs the company and as such will decrease the value of the company and the stock.. Answer . If all other factors are equal, a buyer would prefer a stock that is expected to pay the higher dividend. If Company A is expected to pay $10 per share annually and Compan…y B $8, an investor who wants to make 8% would be willing to bid $125 for a share of Company A but only $100 for Company B. On the date that a dividend is effective, a company's stock will drop by the amount of the dividend because that amount will be paid to the person who owned the stock at the beginning of that day.

The stock market connects offer and demand, which means that investors who willing to sell find a demand of others in the stock market. If the price of a stock is $40.00 and someone wants to buy a certain amount of stocks he has to pay a higher price because of the offers lying above that level. I…f one wanted to sell the stocks for a lower price this would have already happened at a stock price of 40.00.Therefore, the cheapest offer which can be found lies slightly above 40.00 at, for example 40.02. This is the price the investor has to pay. This results in an increase in the stock price. If a stock is little popular there may be a lower offer of stocks what can make the cheapest offer much higher at, for example, 40.40. A purchase of stocks would cause an increase in the price of 1%. Therefore it is necessary to use order limits and tell your bank that you won't pay more than a certain price (40.05) in order not to pay a too high price. (MORE)

The public justification is that the fall of a large company like Bear Stearns could cause a ripple effect that would take down other companies, perhaps the entire American economy.. Many Americans are skeptical of this reasoning, suspecting that perhaps bribery of various members of Congress and t…heir staffs is the more likely motivation for such massive assistance.. In truth, no one knows what would happen if a firm as large as Bear Stearns collapsed. The only way to truly know would be to let it happen, and since there is the strong possibility of a "ripple effect," it would seem prudent to avoid an experiment of that nature. (MORE)

In the strictest sense of the word, not much. As long as the company does not run out of cash, then its stock price is irrelevant to the company's operations.. However, stock price is a reflection of what the market thinks the company's equity is worth, and this has implications. So, here are some …scenarios:. If the stock price undervalues a company's equity... it will tend to attract buyout offers and hostile takeovers as people take advantage of the stock's low price. Also, investors will be unhappy with the stock performance and the CEO will not collect large bonuses. So CEO turnover is another symptom of a low stock price. And finally, underpriced stock will also tend to be "bought back" because the company views it as a good investment.. If the stock price overvalues a company's equity... the company will be more prone to using its stock to acquire other companies. Stock buyback become less attractive, and it becomes very expensive for the company to be acquired. (MORE)

Bull market. A bull market tends to be associated with increasing investor confidence, motivating investors to buy in anticipation of future price increases and future capital gains. In describing financial market behavior, the largest group of market participants is often referred to, metaphorical…ly, as a herd. This is especially relevant to participants in bull markets since bulls are herding animals. A bull market is also sometimes described as a bull run. Dow Theory attempts to describe the character of these market movements.. India's BSE Index SENSEX was in a bull run for almost five years from April 2003 to January 2008 as it increased from 2,900 points to 21,000 points. Another notable and recent bull market was in the 1990s when the U.S. and many other global financial markets rose rapidly.. Bear market. A bear market is a steady drop in the stock market over a period of time. It is described as being accompanied by widespread pessimism. Investors anticipating further losses are often motivated to sell, with negative sentiment feeding on itself in a vicious circle. The most famous bear market in history followed the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and lasted from 1930 to 1932, marking the start of the Great Depression. A milder, low-level, long-term bear market occurred from about 1973 to 1982, encompassing the stagflation of U.S. economy, the 1970s energy crisis, and the high unemployment of the early 1980s. Due to the current economic conditions (be it the steady decline in value of the market or the high unemployment rate) the United States of America is currently in a bear market. High ranking economic evaluators as well as upper end public officials have coined America's current situation as a "recession.". Prices fluctuate constantly on the open market. To take the example of a bear stock market, it is not a simple decline, but a substantial drop in the prices of the majority of stocks over a defined period of time. According to The Vanguard Group, "While there's no agreed-upon definition of a bear market, one generally accepted measure is a price decline of 20% or more over at least a two-month period." (MORE)
Goes Down(Kaylop) You can make money in a Bear Market when stocks go down by "Selling Short" Short selling stocks is the most misunderstood and under-utilized of stock trading techniques. The idea of making money because of a stock price dropping, seems very foreign and down-right doesn't s…eem to make sense to most people. Many stock investors feel it's un-ethical to sell short. They seem to believe we have to root for our companies to do well. Since most people in the markets have a natural tendency toward optimism, selling short is often viewed as being negative. The fact is, there is absolutely nothing wrong with recognizing the reality of both the marketplace and economy. Cycles are a fact of life. In the same way that it's rational to sell and avoid a large loss when a stock starts to decline, it's also reasonable to profit from that decline. So what is short selling? Selling stocks short is placing a sell order for shares you do NOT currently own, in the expectation that the share price will drop in the future. For example, if you sell short company XYZ at $30, you simply borrow the shares from your stock broker for delivery to another buyer. If XYZ drops to $20, you then buy XYZ stock shares to replace those you owe your broker. And in the process you make $10 a share. So who says you cannot make money in a bear market? It's a statistical fact that stocks decline faster than they rise. The reason being because fear causes a panic reaction, while greed takes time to simmer. So if you learn the rules for short selling stock and learn to use the proper tools, great profits can be yours! (MORE)

Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with stock market has probably heard of the terms bull market and bear market. Bull market and bear market are terms that describe the market trend. A bull market means there is an upward trend in the stock market, while a bear market indicates a downward trend.… In a bear market, negative sentiment and pessimism prevails in the market due to falling prices of stocks. It's sort of a vicious circle as investors, looking to book profits or cut losses, start selling their stocks. The selling activity reaches a fervent pitch, bringing down the prices further and adding to the prevailing negativity. Stock market may seem like an attractive investment option, but you need to be an expert at following and reading the market if you want to make profits. What can help is enlisting the services of a professional broker.

Managers can influence several items which directly effect stock price. The number of shares which the company decides to float will effect the price of the common stock. In addition, since valuation is determined by the present value of future cash flows, managers may influence the magnitude and ti…ming of those cash flows. Any decision which increases the magnitude of those future cash flows would likely increase the common stock price. Similarly, decisions which delay costs and/or move forward expected cash flows would also likely have a positive effect on the valuation of common equity. (MORE)

Basically the stock market is like any other market in the economy. Prices are regulated by demand and supply. Now there are various factors which affect demand and supply which will affect the price. Those factor can be news for example. A good CEO has left the company, or the company has committ…ed fraud. Those things make people loose trust in the company and they will sell the stock which means the price goes down.
