5 Cash Balances to Maintain The optimal level of cash should include: (1) the transaction balances required when cash management is efficient. (2) the compensating balance requirements of commercial banks.
6 Investment in Marketable Securities Having cash available in the accounts for longer periods of time requires efficient investment decisions in the marketable securities.Marketable Securities are shown on the balance sheet as:1. Cash equivalents if maturities are less than three 3 months at the time of acquisition.2. Short-term investments if remaining maturities are less than one 1 year.
7 The Marketable Securities Portfolio Ready Cash Segment (R$)Optimal balance of marketable securities held to take care of probable deficiencies in the firm’s cash account.F$R$C$
8 The Marketable Securities Portfolio Controllable Cash Segment (C$)Marketable securities held for meeting controllable (knowable) outflows, such as taxes and dividends.F$R$C$

10 Variables in Marketable Securities Selection SafetyRefers to the likelihood of getting back the same number of dollars you originally invested, i.e. recovery of principal invested.Marketability (or Liquidity)The ability to sell a significant volume of securities in a short period of time in the secondary market without significant price concession.
11 Variables in Marketable Securities Selection Interest Rate (or Yield) RiskThe variability in the market price of a security caused by changes in interest rates.MaturityRefers to the remaining life of the security.
12 Common Money Market Instruments All government securities and short-term corporate obligations.Treasury Bills (T-bills): Short-term, non-interest bearing obligations of the U.S. Treasury issued at a discount and redeemed at maturity for full face value. Minimum $1,000 amount and $1,000 increments thereafter.
13 T-Bills and Bond Equivalent Yield (BEY) Method: BEY = [ (FA – PP) / (PP) ] *[ 365 / DM ]FA: face amount of securityPP: purchase price of securityDM: days to maturity of securityA $1,000, 26-week T-bill is purchased for $956 – what is its BEY?BEY = [ (1000 – 956) / (956) ] *[ 365 / 182 ]BEY = 9.23%
14 T-Bills and Equivalent Annual Yield (EAY) Method: EAY = (1 + [ BEY / (365 / DM) ] )365/DM - 1BEY: bond equivalent yield from the previous slideDM: days to maturity of securityCalculate the EAY of the $1,000, 26-week T-bill purchased for $956 described on the previous slide?EAY = (1 + [.0923/(365 / 182)])365/EAY = 9.44%
15 Common Money Market Instruments Treasury Notes: Medium-term obligations of the U.S. Treasury with a 2-10 years’ original maturity.Treasury Bonds: Long-term obligations of the U.S. Treasury having more than 10 years’ original maturity.

19 Selecting Securities for the Portfolio Segments Ready Cash Segment (R$)Safety and ability to convert to cash is most important.Select Government Treasuries for this segment.F$R$C$
20 Selecting Securities for the Portfolio Segments Controllable Cash Segment (C$)Marketability less important. Possibly match time needs.May select repos, Bankers Acceptance notes, for this segment.F$R$C$
21 Selecting Securities for the Portfolio Segments Free Cash Segment (F$)Base choice on yield subject to risk-return trade-offs.Any money market instrument may be selected for this segment.F$R$C$
26 SummaryKey variables that should be considered before purchasing any marketable securities.Common money-market instruments that a marketable securities portfolio manager would consider for investment.Three segments of the marketable securities portfolio and which securities are most appropriate for each segment and why.
