Macy’s is valued at twenty-eight billion dollars. Macy’s is not increasing their cash flow. This proposal is not an answer to Macy’s problems. Instead it will merely move around cash and real estate. Selling stores and then renting out some floors could be detrimental to Macy’s because they would no longer be in control. Rents can rise, increasing operating costs and harming profits. Underperforming stores should be closed so efforts can be directed to stores that are performing well. The value of these stores would outpace sales so this would be beneficial. Other stores could be downsized for

Overall, Trinity is located in an area where 53% of gross revenues are Medicare accounts, the unemployment rate is higher than the state and/or national averages, and income levels are below state and national averages (Moody's, 2012). Overall, Trinity has some strengths and weaknesses within its financial debt portfolio in order, for Trinity to improve its debt rating it will need to improve its operating margins and revenues (Moody's, 2013).

Consequently, if Trinity invests in new expensive capital that significantly increase its debt or a decline in liquidity without improvements in cash flows, than the hospital will encounter financial distress (Moody's,

Merck & Co. has to be aware of the economy as with any industry. Within the recession, more and more were looking towards generic substitutes. This can at times not be a problem with patents.
