My question is for Richard.My mother has some stock when she passed away in March of 2016. Over two years later in October of 2018, I filled out the proper forms to transfer the shares to myself. I have no intentions of selling but I am wondering about the tax basis. I think I would step up the basis to the fair market value at the time of the transfer, which was October of 2018 and not March of 2016. Is that correct?

I need to know what healthcare organization did you use for this assignment. Perform an internet search for a current health care organization of your choice (preferably publicly traded for-profit organizations because these organizations must report all financial data and make it available to the public). In your search, select and evaluate the report of the financial information from the past 4 quarters or more. Complete the following for this assignment: Predict the effect of changes in all financial metrics to changes in a proposed strategic plan in your chosen organization for the following 3 scenarios: Payer mix changes from 50% Medicare and 5% Medicaid patients to 70% Medicare and 10% Medicaid patients in 1 year. Professional turnover goes from 5% annually to 10% annually. Demand for services increases 20% in 1 year Search course materials including your text and the Internet for assistance in completing applicable financial calculations for this assignment. Using the statements that you located, provide a financial plan that will do the following: Create projected financial statements to analyze effects of alternate operating assumptions on the firm’s financial condition Determine the projected financial requirements that will be needed to support each of the 3 sets of alternate operating instructions Forecast the financial sources that might be needed to support your alternative assumptions Assess the projected results using a financial condition analysis to the forecasted data Provide appropriate spreadsheets such as Projected Income Statement and Projected Balance Sheets to validate your projected assumptions. Consider the effect of the following factors to justify the changes that may be needed to the strategic plan as a result of your analysis: Validity of data in the decision-making process Revenue growth rate Capacity Rate of turnover

Indicate the companies you are investing in: Select three (3) US companies that are publicly traded. Please use your knowledge and experience and pick as many stocks as you’d like. Make sure you are practicing good diversification. Jim Cramer, Money Manager, on CNBC, plays a game at the end of his show called “Am I Diversified.” Check out a short clip to get a sense of industry diversification at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3lDxexupcE. Sources of Information: There are many ways to find such companies and the stock prices, including the New York Stock Exchange at http://www.nyse.com, Google Finance at http://google.com, NASDAQ at http://www.nasdaq.com, and http://finance.yahoo.com. Indicate the amount you are investing in each company: Decide how you will divide $25,000 across the three (3) companies; e.g. $10,000 in Company 1, $10,000 in Company 2, and $5,000 in Company 3. You decide the amount you are investing in each company. You do not have to provide any analysis to justify your decisions. You must only provide some reason for picking that company. For example, you might invest in Ford because that company gets a lot of your money and you hear that Ford is doing well, and will continue to do well. Indicate the number of shares you are buying, and the price of the shares you are buying for each company: Once you decide the companies and the amount for each company, determine how many shares you can buy. If Company 1 is selling for $42.16, then you may buy $10,000/ $42.16, or 237.19 shares. But you cannot buy a part of a share, so you decide to buy either 237 or 238. In this example you buy 237 shares, at $42.16 per share, investing $9,991.92. You won’t be able to buy exactly $10,000, or $5,000, or $25,000, but it will be relatively close.
