The Nestle

July 25th, 2013

Direct competition does not exist at the time of the product innovations of the otherwise would not be innovations, if of course each organization with its new product in the market will be substitutes or secondary competitors but not with the same product since this innovation is allowing to maintain a temporary barrier until your competitor or another player copy your product and make certain modifications or perform a new innovation that allows you to compete with your product in terms of attributes that possess. Company in the market with new product: this new classification differs from the previous one as soon as that organization has replacements and direct competitors, but we should remember that each strategic unit possesses its own competitors, customers, suppliers, an example therefore demos so you can understand better. The Nestle company has clear competitors in terms of the development of their chocolates, and different products of its various segments, but which would assume if that company launches an innovative market product as it did during the winter of 2006, creating a chocolate than any company towards. Put this way to be able to better understanding of the management of innovation in this product, Nestle will continue to have their same competitors, but with the exception that in this recent innovation won’t have any competitor and happened to have a competitive advantage not only as also enjoys position in their consumers in a unique and unrepeatable manner on other players. Innovations enable companies to create a new positioning of its product and the minds of consumers owning since successful positioning in every customer who buys the product will be kept for being original and new. Barriers to entry in the market of innovations: each competitor entry barriers may be low or high depending on the type of industry involved, the following variables can determine the complexity of the income of each competitor and assemble a matrix that will allow us to study the entry of that competitor.

European Community

July 11th, 2013

The European Community signed in the Dutch city of Maastricht in December 1991, the Treaty on the European Union to preveyio by the end of the last century a complete economic and monetary union, a common foreign policy and the road to political integration. We have to recognize, by placing the hand over the heart, which Europe we admitted, that Yes!, as poor brothers in union of our poor men also poor brothers: Portuguese and Greeks. Our diplomatic authorities were not the sufficiently ambitious to learn to negotiate agreements and treaties which benefit, under formulas clear and decisive, political and economic interests beyond the seas. We are already poor men! Does under this climate, Spain, fully integrated in the global concert of Nations, held that must have been his great year 1992?. Commemoration of the V centenary of the Gesta of Christopher Columbus, the Universal exhibition in Seville and the European Cultural capital in Madrid. We are already rich men! However, these events may have been decisive for our European and global launches platform, but it is no less true that the atmosphere of political crisis and current concern regarding the State of the autonomies contrasts excessively with the spirit of the past ephemeris, which contributed to delayed awareness of austerity and realism that today lives the Spanish society. Incidentally step, internal problems, and thanks to God, we are faithfully informed with daily punctuality by all means of communication. If a man of State politician has done wrong it should rectify and recognize their mistakes, will not be the error becomes obligation, and by obligation to continue keeping their mistakes.

Spaniards are a people easy to govern, but it is clear that we have already reached our coming of age, and today, not we can deceive. The truth has to be one and clear, even though it is hard. There is an old poem by India, which says: If you have two pieces of bread, gives one to the poor: sells another and buy hyacinths to feed thy soul. This is the India of Gandhi (born in 1869 and was murdered in 1948), theoretical activist that change the thoughts of our twentieth century. In their dream and cherished nation, today, still exist: rich man, poor man! Many poor men. The Spanish village complies with little: A love, a friend, a good book, what does not take away the football! It is our daily bread. I think and reflect, what will I be?: rich man, poor man? Could it be that I am a poor man? La Coruna, October 30, 2006 * Mariano Cabrero Barcena is original author and source of the article

FSA Companies

July 8th, 2013

The issue in the United States.UU. It has deeper roots since the SEC has the function of monitoring the solvency of investment banks (among which is logically, Bearn Stearns), by which its fall generates big questions for the regulatory body. Why is that the SEC suspected that there was manipulation by the market with Bearn Stearns it? For the SEC, Bearn Stearns was in one situation more than acceptable. On March 11, just four days before the announcement of the sale of the entity, Christopher Cox (President of the SEC), had said about Bear Stearns: we feel comfortable with the cushion of capital that has the signature at the moment. Suspicions of manipulation are not limited only to the North American market. Also the British supervisor of the markets, the FSA (Financial Services Authority), launched an investigation by the spread of rumors about the solvency of the English banks causing in quotations of the main banks in United Kingdom, a high volatility of the last few days. In the case of the actions of Halifax Bank of Scotland, them arrived yesterday fell 18% by speculation about liquidity problems. With numerous cases on manipulation of prices of shares and use of privileged information (whose most memorable example in recent months relates to Societe Generale), it makes it very difficult to determine what respond to variations in the prices of the shares of the companies (in particular, financial institutions).

It is likely that great volatility and pessimism that is seen in the markets have been unfairly punished companies that enjoy a good situation and positive Outlook does know what are these companies? I know it is difficult, but some of them are sending signals to the market through repurchase their shares. Through share buybacks, these companies are saying the market values on which are listed the same are located significantly below that would be based on their health and their perspectives. In this last time the volume has increased significantly from stock buybacks, with large companies actively participating in the operation. Among the large companies that have recently announced stock buybacks are IBM (NYSE:IBM) and Telefonica S.A. (NYSE:TEF). Surely for the shareholders of those companies where it is projected to repurchase part of shares in circulation, this signal gives them something of tranquility.
