Don’t Be Afraid to Publish in Cyberspace, Pace University Professor Says

“Magazine publishers who are afraid to go cyber because they
might risk giving away their content, misunderstand the benefits of
doing business online,” says Alan Eisner, professor of management at
Pace University Lubin School of Business. “Cyber publishing is not
about newsstand sales. It’s about attracting more customers and
generating greater advertising revenue. It’s about converting
online users to subscribers and creating opportunities to reach
new and existing readers and advertisers in different ways.”
Eisner, along with Quintus Jett, Rice University, and Helaine
Korn, Baruch College conducted a recent study comparing
characteristics and roles of 114 randomly selected online
publications.

Eisner, along with Quintus Jett, Rice University, and Helaine

Researchers compared newcomer, online-only entrants
(including Salon, Sludge Report, and thestreet.com) with
cyber versions of incumbent, print publications (including
The New York Times, The New York Post, and The Wall Street
Journal). “Newcomer” webzine entrants were found to be
ground-breaking, include original content and feature
innovative layout design. However, “incumbents”
generated greater revenue than newcomers. “Incumbents”
had strong ideas about what they wanted to accomplish
due to strong business plans and these publications
possessed legitimacy in the minds of potential readers
and advertisers.

Scores of online publications enter the realm of
cyber-publishing everyday. “But, don’t worry because
the newspaper as we know it is never going to disappear.
People want something to read on the train, or at the
morning breakfast table and that won’t change for
eons,” states Eisner.

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. —
Tips from Pace University’s Lubin School of Business

Worries plague “new” investors. Recently flush with cash from their investments and the long-running bull market, young inexperienced stock market players are besieged with anxieties about the inevitable market crash, the Asian crisis, and the loss of their gains. In order to sleep at night, more and more investors are choosing to invest their money in bonds to circumvent fears of “hitting bottom” in the stock market. When making the decision to invest in stocks or bonds, consider the following information from Professor P.V. Viswanath, Pace University’s Lubin School of Business:

I understand what a stock is, but what is a bond? Are there different types besides the Treasury bond?

    Bonds are securities that represent loans made either to the US Government (Treasury bonds or T-bonds), local or state governments (municipal bonds) or to corporations (corporate bonds). T-bonds are free of default risk, i.e., it is almost certain that the principal lent to the US Government will be repaid, and that the interest payments (coupons) will be made on time. However, if the bonds are not held until maturity, their value can go up or down as interest rates fluctuate. Corporate bonds do have default risk, but the amount of risk depends very much on the characteristics of the issuers.

  1. If you are investing for just a few years, do you invest in stocks or bonds?

If you are investing for just a few years, bonds provide much more safety. In addition, it is possible to choose bonds of the appropriate maturity, so that interest rate risk is minimized. If you want to minimize down-side risk, then you should invest much more in bonds than in stocks.

3) I am in my thirties, do I invest in stocks or bonds? Why?

The average return on bonds, particularly T-bonds is very low, compared to that on US equities. Long-term T-bonds have yielded an average of 5.35% from 1926 to 1993, while the average return on the Standard and Poor’s Composite Index over the same period was 12.31%. Inflation over the same period was 3.23% on average. This means that long-term bonds barely provided a 2% return over inflation, while equities provided about 9% over inflation. Although the year to year variation in returns is much higher for bonds than for stocks, the variation in returns over 20-year periods is actually smaller for stocks than for bonds. Hence, anybody investing for the long-run should probably invest a sizeable portion of their wealth in stocks, provided that the portfolio is well diversified.

  1. Are bonds subject to the same market fluctuations as stocks? Stocks are subject to two kinds of market fluctuations: one, fluctuations in earnings, and two, fluctuations in interest rates, i.e. fluctuations in the value of money. Bonds, on the other hand (at least, T-bonds), are subject only to fluctuations in interest rates. However, there are empirical relationships between the level of business activity and interest rates, which vary over the business cycle. Hence, T-bonds will also be indirectly affected by fluctuations in corporate earnings, through their effect on interest rates.

  2. What are “emerging-market bonds”? Emerging Market bonds are bonds issued by governments in countries that do not have fully industrialized and developed economies, or economies that are somewhat more risky. These countries frequently have high substantial political, as well as exchange rate risk. Due to the adventurous nature of these securities, returns can sometimes be handsome, making them attractive to investors willing to tolerate risk. However, the downside danger can be substantial. Examples are bonds issued by the governments of Mexico, Russia, Brazil, China, Hong Kong and India.

  3. What are some “tips” you can give to first time investors in bonds? Investing in T-bonds is pretty easy, since these bonds mainly differ by maturity. Investing in corporate bonds is much more difficult, since it is necessary to look at the financial statements of the companies issuing the bonds, as well as specific characteristics of the bonds: are they callable, are they convertible, are they secured, are they senior or subordinated, etc. However, in either case, it is advisable to look for mutual funds with objectives and maturities that match your needs. If you are thinking of investing in tax-free bonds, compare their return with the after-tax return on regular taxable bonds. If you are in a high tax bracket, they may be worthwhile for you.

  4. Who should consider investing in bonds? Bonds should form a part of almost everybody’s portfolio. However, two categories of investors would be particularly interested in bonds: those who don’t like risk, and those who are investing for a specific point in time in the not-too-distant future and cannot bear downside risk (e.g. somebody saving to buy a house in two years).

  5. What are some websites that provide background information on bonds?

A simple introduction to bond pricing can be found at http://library.pace.edu/~viswanat/class/301/notes/bonds.html

Information on Bond Portfolio Management can be found at http://library.pace.edu/~viswanat/class/652/notes/fixportf.html

In addition, all the mutual fund companies, such as Vanguard (www.vanguard.com) or Fidelity (www.fidelity.com) have information on bonds.

NEW YORK – More than 85 percent of new businesses fail. But don’t tell American entrepreneurs the odds! With technological advances, growing opportunities on the Internet and the ever-enduring lore of Horatio Alger — more Americans than ever want to start and run their own business. Pace University’s Lubin School of Business launches an “Entrepreneur in Residence” program, to commence in September 1998, to provide entrepreneurs-to-be the chance to interact and learn from a successful self-starter.

Lubin’s Entrepreneur in Residence program will feature individuals who have created, financed and managed new business ventures. Three guest entrepreneurs per academic year will visit Lubin and share their knowledge with students and faculty. The program received funding from the Coleman Foundation, Inc., of Chicago. Randy Myer, founder of Best Friends Pet Care, a national chain of high quality boarding, grooming and veterinarian services, is the first scheduled entrepreneur for the 1998/99 school year. Myer has a Harvard MBA and, prior to founding Best Friends Pet Care, worked for Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Spalding and IBM.

Myer will interact with students on Pace University’s Pleasantville, White Plains and New York City campuses. Myer states that, “most business education has been geared to large corporate leaders of business, but the backbone of this country is really the small business owner.” In addition to teaching a graduate course on Entrepreneurial Policy, Myer will lecture to undergraduate and graduate marketing and management classes, conduct hands-on workshops, and help students to develop business plans and strategies for attracting venture capitalists. Myer also will participate in developing an Entrepreneurial Development Fund, which will invest in and provide resources to Pace students and alumni who have an idea for a new business. Myer comments, “Pace will not only offer students the educational wherewithal to start their own businesses but also assist them financially in getting started.”

Pace is a comprehensive, independent University with campuses in New York City and Westchester County. Nearly 14,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Lubin School of Business, School of Computer Science and Information Systems, School of Education, School of Law and Lienhard School of Nursing.

Tips for Starting Your Own Business

NEW YORK – The psychology of a successful entrepreneur may be elusive, but there are several practical tips one can follow when embarking on a new business venture. Randy Myer, Entrepreneur in Residence at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, provides some hands-on guidelines for strategic and successful entrepreneurship.

  • Acquire Experience in Your Field. If you want to start a cookie company, try working as an apprentice in a leading bakery. Learn the business. See how the inside of your dream really works.

  • Conduct Research. Determine the need for your product or service within your target population. For instance, before Myer started his company, Best Friends Pet Care, he discovered that pet owners were willing to spend a lot of money on their pets – especially for quality. And in 1990, when Myer set out, the pet care industry was seriously under-serving this population.

  • Solve Consumer Frustrations. Successful companies solve consumer frustrations and correct market imperfections. You may not be able to build a better mousetrap, but you might be able to create something like the E-Z Pass, which eliminated many commuters’ frustration when waiting at the toll booth.

  • Develop a Conservative Business Plan. Underestimate the “up” side in terms of product development, marketing and sales and overestimate the time it will take you to achieve that.

  • Supplement Your Staff. Hire a team of people who possess skills and experience that you do not have. Do not hire individuals who will only clone your strengths.

  • Develop a Working Model. If your business is multi-location, develop a model in one place to see how it works before you start expanding.

Randy Myer, founder of Best Friends Pet Care – a national chain of high quality boarding, grooming and veterinarian services – is available for interviews; please contact Public Affairs at (212) 346-1696 to schedule.

Pace University Study Shows that Temporary Workers are Just as Motivated as Permanent Staff

If you’re concerned that your temporary staff is slacking off, don’t worry – a new Pace University study shows that contingent workers are just as motivated as permanent employees. New findings of the attitudes, behaviors and motivations of contingent workers shatter many popular myths about this sector of the labor force.

NEW YORK – If you’re concerned that your temporary staff is slacking off, don’t worry – a new Pace University study shows that contingent workers are just as motivated as permanent employees. New findings of the attitudes, behaviors and motivations of contingent workers shatter many popular myths about this sector of the labor force.

“Far from being less committed, less satisfied, less skillful than core employees, contingent workers frequently scored higher in such areas of this survey,” said Peter Allan, a professor of management at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York. “Management should not overlook the potential of these workers. Despite lacking job security and other benefits, they certainly have the motivation to function productively.”

Allan surveyed 197 professional and technical workers – both core and contingent – about how they perceived their jobs. Then he assessed those attributes that are linked to motivation and performance, such as task significance, autonomy, skill variety and feedback. The Pace University study shows:

· Contingent workers scored higher in their ability to be self-motivated by their jobs. Possible reason: lacking permanent positions, contingents may have valued their jobs more; permanent workers may take their jobs for granted.
· Contingent workers scored significantly higher in task identity and job feedback. Possible reason: contingents are hired for tasks that are whole identifiable pieces of work and provide information about the effectiveness of their performance.
· Contingent workers scored higher in need for growth, suggesting that they were likely to respond more favorably to jobs that offered them challenges.

With the exception of job security, the core workers did not score significantly higher in any category, including in their satisfaction with compensation. In many cases, professional and technical contingent workers are paid better than full-time employees are.

“Generally, contingent workers do not enjoy the same kinds of benefits that full-time employees do, such as pensions or health insurance,” Allan said. “But in many cases, people choose to be contingent workers, because it allows them job flexibility. Often hired for a special project, they leave when the assignment is complete, thus freeing them to care for an aging parent or young children. This type of temporary work also can be ideal for a retired person who wants to keep a hand in the labor force.”

Businesses need to tailor work to be motivating to the contingent workers, and provide them direct feedback on their performance in order to maximize motivation and production, Allan said.

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, with 5,500 students, offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degree programs, and hosts a number of research centers and institutes which extend its scholarship and teaching to a worldwide audience. The School is accredited by AACSB: the International Association for Management Education.
