Question 2
Part A
The market for any particular stock is found to be liquid when the shares can be
quickly sold and hence, the act of selling has not that much influence on the price
of stock. However, there are many factors that can assist in a positive shift in the
stocks liquidity. The first one can be related to inflation which leads to a positive
valuation of the stock and hence it will lead to low multiples. Another general factor
according to me would be the belief in the intrinsic stock value as this would results
in such transactions that would include executive insider transactions. They are
often driven or prescheduled by a portfolio. With the above two mentioned factors,
it can be said that when there is an inflation, then it is an obvious fact that the price
of shares would go up and hence it would definitely result in the market liquidity.
More than this, when there is a self belief in the nature of the stock that the price will
rise later onward, then the buyer will not take much time in buying it and hence, this
could also lead to buying and selling of the stock quickly.

Question 2
Part B
The relationship between owners and management of the company in context of the company
can be described in such a way that managers have the responsibility to drive the
shareholders value and maximize their wealth. However, shareholders invest their funds
within the company and expect a high yield from their investment. But the managers working
there pretend to work for the benefits of the shareholders and in reality, they work for their
own personal interests and benefits. An example of this can be related to the fact that there
are several conflicts of interests that can influence the decisions of managers to act in the
interests of shareholders and the management can buy other companies to expand power
which is an example. The managers could manipulate financial figures while venturing onto
fraud so that bonuses can be optimized along with stock price related options. The advocates
of the governance should generally encourage the corporations to give priority to the rights of
shareholders and assist shareholders as to learning how and where the rights could be
exercised. Transparency and disclosure are interwined with such objectives and goals.
