The Russians are coming!
Andrea Gomez is considering how to invest the modest amount of money she recently inherited ($48,000). Based on her knowledge of different types of investments, as well as the advice of friends, Andrea thinks that she should invest her inheritance in a long-term U.S. Treasury bond that promises to pay her $3,690 interest every 6 months for 10 years. However, today at lunch, Andrea asked her best friend John how he would invest the money. John responded that he thought she could invest in something other than the T-bond and earn a much higher rate of return. In fact, he told Andrea that he was at a company social a few nights ago where he overheard a few people talking about a U.S. automobile manufacturer that is partnering with the Russian government to open a manufacturing operation in Moscow. The firm, named Bytiye Autos (BA), would have exclusive rights to manufacture U.S. automobiles in Russia. One of the men involved in the conversation stated that he thought the arrangement presented a huge opportunity for BA to substantially increase its profits during the next 10 years, which should translate into significant increases in the company’s stock price. All of the other people involved in the discussion agreed.
Intrigued, Andrea thought it would be a good idea to investigate BA as a potential investment, so she sought advice from her friends and relatives. One friend advised against BA as an investment because she had heard from another friend that the company does not adhere to the same labor practices as companies do in the United States. Another friend advised against the investment because workers have no union representation, like those who work for automobile manufacturers in other countries. Additionally, Andrea’s uncle, who works in the U.S. State Department, said that he had heard that BA made a huge payment, which he called a bribe, to the Russian government before the deal was signed. Her uncle thought that the payment BA made to the government might be considered illegal in the United States. However, Andrea’s boyfriend, who happens to be Russian, thinks that she should invest her money in BA. According to information provided by his family and friends in Russia, the agreement between BA and Russia represents a historic business deal that the Russian government intends to support fully, so there is little risk associated with the investment. In fact, according to her boyfriend, Andrea’s $48,000 could grow to $112,500 in 10 years if she invests it in BA.
If you were Andrea,
What would you do?How would you evaluate this investment?Should you invest in a company that might have questionable labor practices or pay bribes to foreign governments?Does the proposal make “financial” sense?
