  • Portfolio Management on an Emerging Market: Dynamic Strategy or Passive

    • Authors: Pourakin Djarius Dieudonné BAMA
      Pages: 15 - 26
      Abstract: At first glance, the portfolio management strategy seems like a resolved question, but practitioners continue to perform poorly on the stock markets. This paper highlights the portfolio management in the specific case of the West African regional stock exchange, regarding two management strategies. These are dynamic strategy and passive strategy. Within this framework, we will compare an investor who is constantly betting on price fluctuations with another who is betting on dividends. Its originality lies in the approach that is used. Through a simulation methodology based on real market data, the main results indicate that an emerging market is a savings market more than it is a speculation market. Besides, other results indicate that, one can predict on the West African regional stock exchange tomorrow’s prices from today’s prices. This does not mean that investors are making good predictions because the predictability of prices is due to the absence of changes in asset prices on the market. We draw the conclusion that it is difficult for one speculator to outperform the other. A rational investor would benefit from anticipating the distribution of dividends rather than focusing on price fluctuations. Consequently, the buy and hold strategy is therefore the best to be rewarded in an emerging market. Nonetheless, this practice can lead to a decline in liquidity.

  • Understanding the Performance of Domestic Biodigesters in Bangladesh: A
           Study from Household Level Survey

    • Authors: Samira Salam, Rehena Parveen, S.M. Nasim Azad, Md. Abdus Salam
      Pages: 27 - 39
      Abstract: Biogas can be an important alternative energy source for the sustainable development of the energy sector. To understand the performance of the family-size biodigester in Bangladesh, a household level survey on randomly selected 360 biodigester adopters was conducted. It is evident from the study that adoption of biodigester at the household level is economically and environmentally viable. Most of the biodigesters were constructed for single household and production of biogas was sufficient for cooking for single household. About 35% of biodigesters generated surplus gas from which they earned money by selling the surplus gas. About 91% of the biodigesters were feed with cow dung, one of the optimal biogases producing substrates, which has easy access in their own households. The factor analysis suggests that the most important factors to make biodigester economically viable are: capacity of biodigester, availability of substrates, amount of investment for biodigester, and economic benefits derived from biodigester.

    • Authors: Tinashe Madzinga, Vusumuzi Sibanda, Shakerod Munuhwa
      Pages: 40 - 49
      Abstract: This study evaluated the impact of e-procurement as a strategic sourcing tool in the Beverage Industry in Zimbabwe. A quantitative survey of 57 respondents drawn from the key players in the Beverage Industry in Harare, Zimbabwe was conducted using a questionnaire. In line with the research objectives, descriptive statistics were calculated and cross tabulations were also performed in SPSS to produce outputs that provided answers to the research questions. The results show that through the use of e-procurement, companies are able to move towards partnership or lean supply with a smaller number of more technically proficient suppliers. The study concluded that there is a significant positive association between e-procurement and improvement in procurement efficiency. The study recommends that organisations develop adequate business processes to support e-procurement and the alignment of existing procurement processes with e-procurement procedures.
