Goal of The Firm

In finance , the goal of the firm is always described as "maximization of shareholders' wealth".

Profit Maximization - is always used as a goal of the firm in microeconomics. Focus on short term goal to be achieved within a year. It stresses on the efficient use of capital resources. In order to maximize profit, the financial manager will implement actions that would result in maximum profits without considering the consequence of his actions towards the company's future performance.

Drawbacks of Profit Maximization
- Profit maximization is a short-term concept.
- Profit maximization does not consider the timing of returns.
- Profit maximization ignores risk.

Maximization of Shareholders' Wealth

The goal is o maximize the shareholders' wealth for whom it is being operated. It being measured by the share price of the stock, which in turn is based on the timing of returns, the amount of the returns and the risk or uncertainty of the returns.

It also means maximizing the total market value of the existing shareholders' common stock. All financial decisions will affect the achievement of this goal. Shareholders' wealth maximization can be achieved by considering the present and potential future earnings per share, timing of returns, dividend policy and other factors that affect the market price of the company's stock.

  5. My name is Antonio Jefferson Cole, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how I got healed from genital herpes 12 hours ago. I have read so many comments from some people who have been cured of HIV by Dr. Ekpiku, but I never believed them. I was hurt and depressed, so I was very curious and wanted to try Dr. Ekpiku, so I contacted him on his email when I get in touch with him, he assured me 100% that it will heal me, I begged Him to help me. My treatment was a great success, he healed me as he promised. He sent me his medication and asked me to go for check-up after 2 weeks of taking the medication. I agree with him, I took this medication and went to the check-up after 2 month, to my greatest surprise my result was negative after treatment, I am really happy that I am healed and healthy again. I waited for four months to make sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test today and was still negative Herpes, so I think its time I tell someone out there with Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, diabetes, cancer and so on, Dr. Ekpiku in the email: . Your phone number is +2348073673757, He is also on whats app. I completely understand how you can feel skeptical about it, because it happened to me, it can be expensive for you, but I'm telling you now that there is a cure for these diseases and I am a living witness firsthand.or you can email me on for any assistance.


    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565

  7. Many Americans wait until April 15 rolls around to even begin Tucson Tax Preparation around their junk drawers looking for relevant documents to file their taxes. But the smart ones know that to get the best return, tax preparation should begin as soon as a year before filing.
