My thesis of "Investment Choices: Which to Choose?" dealt with my internship experience at Arthur Anderson & Co. My experience led me to be exposed to many financial instruments. Therefore, to expand my knowledge on these instruments my capstone discusses the accounting for options contracts and futures contract. Also, it explains why there is an interest in these instruments by investors. In addition, among the financial issues discussed were when investors should use futures/options to increase return or reduce risk. Another issue explained was how the financial instruments can be used as hedges. Other accounting issues explored were the concepts of cost or market values and whether gains or losses should be recorded or unrecorded in relation to options and futures.
