NCRD's Business Review : e-Journal, Volume 2, Issue 2 (Jan-Dec 2016) ISSN: 2455-0264 A STUDY ON YOUTH'S GREEN BUYING BEHAVIOR WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO DOMBIVLI, MUMBAI Mr. Mathew Lawrence, Ph.D Research Scholar ABSTRACT Business organizations need to contribute significantly to healthily environment through the adoption of green marketing. The activities of some of this business may result to environmental pollution which makes the environment becomes inimical to human habitation. India is still in its nascent stage of developing green and sustainable marketing strategies. In India majority population is young. Any behavioral change among youth can create a huge turnaround for any company as well as entire country. This study throws light on green marketing and its impact on youth. The research is conducted with probing questions on environmental awareness, knowledge, and perception of consumers towards green marketing and perceived barriers faced by consumers in adopting green marketing. Both primary and secondary data has been used for the research. Exploratory research was carried out; convening sampling technique has been used. Sample Size was 500 respondents from Dombivli area. Data has been analyzed using SPSS. Research findings reveal that green marketing is more effective than regular marketing. Keywords: Green Marketing, Youth, Attitude, Perception INTRODUCTION Industries around the world have started the green initiative to counter ill effects of business processes particularly transformation and consumption of products on natural environment and its inhabitants. Today citizens and policy makers across the world are focused on issues such as terrorism and economic meltdown. But at the same time environmental issues also remain high on list of concern. Green marketing research has come a long way. Consumers from the developed countries including USA and Western Europe were found to be more conscious about the environment (Curlo, 1999). Research in the last decade(Lee, 2008 2009, Rahbar and Wahid, 2011, D Souza 2004) has indicated those consumers are aware and are willing to pay more to "go green". Green marketing came into prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s; it was first discussed much earlier. The American Marketing Association (AMA) held the first workshop on "Ecological Marketing" in 1975. The proceedings of this workshop resulted in one of the first books on green marketing entitled "Ecological Marketing". According to Polonsky (1994) green or environmental marketing consists of all activities, designed to generate and facilitate any exchange intended to satisfy human needs and wants, such that the satisfaction of these needs and wants occur with minimum detrimental impact on the natural environment. LITERATURE REVIEW Green marketing is a vital constituent of the holistic marketing concept today. It is particularly applicable to those businesses that are directly dependent on the physical environment. Changes in the physical environment may pose threat to fishing, processed foods tourism and adventure sports industries. (Yasmin and Shamshuddin; 2014) There is no one single strategy that will work for all companies, it all depends on the own individual objectives, target market, resources

share in the US last year, and is not being manufactured for an unspecified period this year due to the influx of competition.
Management says it's not losing any further market share and the company has an application for reformulation awaiting approval. In 2012 it represented about 70 per cent of Mayne's 2012 sales, this year it will be around 10 per cent.
There is also an antitrust lawsuit hanging over Doryx, having been filed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals of the US. The situation hasn't played itself out. Mayne Pharma says it doesn't expect any "material financial liabilities" in relation to this based on its "current legal advice".
The bigger game is the Metrics acquisition, which dilutes the Doryx results. If this goes to plan, profit could well reach more than $13 million in fiscal 2014, putting the stock on a PE of about 10 times. n ISS GROUP (ISS) – SOFTWARE FOR PRODUCTION LINES

ISS's stock slid from 23 cents to 20 cents after it confirmed the end of the existing Schlumberger contract on 31 May, which was worth about $17 million over five years Management had been preparing for this for a while. It also provided an earnings update and the underlying numbers still look quite positive, although an area of concern is licence sales. If you strip out the Schlumberger contract there is no growth there, although the business pipeline remains strong.
Chief executive Richard Pang was upbeat when he spoke to Radar and envisaged a bigger share in the upstream oil and gas market, meaning when gas comes out of the well: "We are more focussed on doing the business ourselves and being in control of our destiny. I've always said this year was our fiscal cliff. Fiscal 2014 is when we realise all the hard work from our strategy of generating sales internally."

A factor driving the share price has been a proposed $600 million merger with accounting services group WHK Australia, but reports now indicate that this merger is being put on the scrap heap.
The financial planning business is much tougher than it once was, due to the advent of self-managed super funds. And the group no longer looks as cheap as chips, trading on a PE of about 12 times. We wouldn't be buyers at these levels, but we continue to like the story. Hold.

Last week it emerged that Altona has to go it alone or find a new partner to develop its Queensland copper project after global miner Xstata changed its mind and decided not to buy a majority stake in the project.
Xstata had a 51 per cent option over the Roseby project although the two parties failed to agree on its valuation. And even paying an independent expert couldn't sort the situation out.
Roseby is located less than 100km away from Xstrata's Mt Isa-Ernest Henry mines in the region. So it had strategic value for Xstrata.
The decision is a definite blow for Altona, whose management has repeatedly said it will not develop the project on its own.
Altona's outspoken managing director Alistair Cowden said that it "was not a disaster". If a processing facility is built at Roseby it will have strategic value for others. This will take more time, but if anyone can do a deal, it's Cowden.
We are still confident in this company's long-term viability and do not advocate selling.
Rotation, or selling one security and buying another, has become the newest most popular phrase over the past few weeks to describe money moving from bonds to equities, from growth stocks to SPECULATOR
SEES THAT THERE
This time last year, people were selling equities and buying cash. This is no longer the case as growing optimism takes hold in global investment markets.
There are a number of phases to an overall rotation process. The first stage of that rotation OCCURRING OUT
process started in June, possibly dating back to the statements by Mario Draghi that the Euro would be defended at all costs.
OF bONDS AND
That process of rotation may have lasted through October, followed by a period of consolidation INTO EqUITIES, OUT between October and mid-December. Since then, the process of rotation has recommenced and we
now feel that we are on a second plateau. OF mINERS AND
So far the rotation has been a benign one with profits being taken on big performing stocks and INTO bANkS, AND
invested into stocks and not cash, where it might have moved a year ago.
Ultra-performers like Apple and its satellites have fallen in the region of 30 per cent in the past months, having climbed exponentially in the prior decade. With so much cash on its balance sheet OF bIG CAPS AND
there are no fundamental risks to the Apple business, in its current form it might be argued that its INTO SmALL CAPS. highest growth days are behind it, and we can easily see Apple suffering a further 30 per cent fall to
as low as $300 as its growth rate and margins deteriorate against expectations. At that point Apple might be a serious value stock.
But the money has not moved out of the stock market. There is nowhere else to hide, except property, which is very illiquid, meaning it is costly to get into and out of. Recurring income is hard to find and getting more expensive all the time until short and long-term interest rates start offering a more compelling alternative.
So in other manifestations of the "great rotation" the long-bond market has come off, though not dramatically. A few sectors, in particular those synonymous with growth, such as mining, have performed badly.
Elsewhere, a few sectors have performed extremely well. These are those that benefit from the expectation of increasing economic growth. One example is banking, particularly in Europe and the UK. This has also happened in Australia, but to a lesser extent because companies were not coming from distressed levels.
There is limited evidence yet of a rotation from large stocks into the small caps that Under the Radar Report specialises in.
And if such a rotation into small caps coincides with a rise in longer-term interest rates, the Small Caps that will benefit are those with little or no debt.
This rotation may end in a sell-off, but the best performances occur at the end of any period of growth. So now is not the time to be selling your equity portfolio. Now is the time to be positioning for stronger growth in Small Caps.
There will be a time to sell aggressively and we are watching out, but right now we would argue that now is the time to be holding on. n RAdAR Top 10 SToCkS (AS AT 23 JAnuARy 2013)

PROFITING IN DIFFICULT TImES Ingenia is benefiting from strong cash generation,
which it is using to purchase properties at less than replacement cost.
For example, this month it purchases a 44-unit rental village in Mandurah, Western Australia for $2.8 million, which translates to about $63,000 a unit. You can't build a unit for that price, and it was bought on a yield of 11 per cent. This yield should increase to 14 per cent based on Owen's track record of increasing the occupancy rating from 70 per cent to 90 per cent. The end result should be an ungeared internal rate of return of about 20 per cent.
Ingenia, with its strong balance sheet, and track record of improving returns on the properties it purchases, is in a great position to keep increasing its profits, and its dividends to security holders. n THE PRofESSIonAL InvESToR THE bALDWINS OF THE AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL mARkETS
It's hard to walk for long in the Australian investment markets and not hear the
name "Aboud" mentioned. It's sort of similar to how the Baldwin brothers were in Hollywood during the 90s.
There is Russell Aboud, the ASX director, and previous head of UBS, and then there is his nephew Anthony, previously a gaming analyst with UBS, and now a fund manager with Perpetual Investments. In this case we are interested in Russell's brother Stephen, who is almost universally known as "The Sheik" in the small pond of the Australian financial markets.
Less than two years ago Stephen ran money for the Lowy family, and now he has set up on his own as a hedge fund manager. Helping him in his endeavours is Marcus Hughes, who comes from the investment banking world. He worked for (you guessed it) UBS, but most recently managed money for Caledonia Investments.
They now manage over $50 million and have attracted high profile investors, which include the Salteri family, whose Tenix Group sold its defence business for $775 million in 2008.
The two are making waves in not only the hedge fund world, but also those of small
caps, having performed extremely well on the back of holding very few positions. Since kicking off in May 2011 its fund has returned investors almost 27 per cent to the end of last year. This compares to the ASX Small Ordinaries return of -13 per cent.
It has generated this return from holding, or going "long" in a small number of stocks. Currently it has big positions in only five. Although it can invest in any sized company, its philosophy of looking for companies that aren't well understood by brokers dictates that it has so far only invested in Small Caps, or companies with market capitalisations less than $500 million. Says Marcus Hughes: "We make money on the long side by identifying smaller companies which fly under the radar and where we think we have an information advantage to generate strong returns over three to five years."
A SmALL NUmbER OF HIGH CONvICTION INvESTmENTS
Investments it has made include the Len Ainsworth inspired poker machine
manufacturer Ainsworth Game Technology (AGI), automotive repairer AMA Group
(AMA), retirement village property group Ingenia (INA), nutritional products
provider Freedom Foods (FNP) and speciality pharmaceuticals company Mayne
In the world of professional investors, there is "high conviction" and there is LHC Capital. Most investment funds hold positions in anywhere from 45 to 60 securities, which goes some way towards replicating the index. A "high conviction" fund usually holds about 15 stocks.
The duo pick stocks that have little or no debt, have strong management, are in growing industries, and have a great deal of operating leverage.
The last factor means that the business has high gross margins (the difference between the price received and the cash costs). As the volume of sales in the business increases, each new sale contributes less to the fixed costs and more to profitability.
Forecasting the profits of these businesses is generally pretty difficult, because a small error in sales expectations makes a big impact on where you think the bottom line is going to go.
kICkING TYRES IS THE kEY
Investing isn't for the feint hearted and Aboud sites an example that shows he isn't afraid to kick a few tyres. It's Ainsworth Game Technology (AGI), which not
surprisingly has produced its biggest return: INDUSTRY (AT DEC 2012)
"All that came from a guy I play golf with who sells poker machines. I asked him mayne Pharma (mYX)
what the best-selling poker machine was, and he said Ainsworth.
"I looked at the company and it had a tiny market cap, so I went and saw them. I got their story and bought some." AmA Group (AmA)
Ainsworth now has a market capitalisation of about $880 million.
DON'T bE AFRAID OF COmPLEXITY
Many of the companies are not well understood, or covered (at least initially) and Aboud and Hughes say that they always make sure that they can see a catalyst for the market to identify what they have had the foresight to see.
Freedom Foods (FNP)
"I love complicated stories," says Hughes. "People don't want to look at them and there is often a difference between the underlying business performance and how the market perceives the company to be trading." "Half the fun is finding things. Many of these companies have a terrible history, which means people give up on them." Freedom Foods is definitely one that takes a bit to get your mind around.
It has three operating businesses and a big share in the New Zealand listed A2, which processes milk from cows carrying the A2 protein.
Elsewhere, Hughes says that only when you understand the history of Mayne
Pharma (MXY) do you have a chance of getting to grips with the narcotics producer.
And AMA Group consists of no less than six automotive related businesses including
its panelbeating business Mr Gloss.
In addition to owning stakes in eight listed companies at any one time, the two are adamant that "shorting stocks" provides them with an avenue to reduce the overall risk of their portfolio.
Shorting means it sells stocks it doesn't own in order to (hopefully) buy them back at a
lower level and make a profit.
It must be considered a right of passage for any budding hedge fund, but Hughes is adamant that it is essential to achieve big returns from its two principles of "conviction investing and capital preservation".
The companies it looks to do this with are ones it considers to be "over earning" or that will "earn less tomorrow than do today".
LHC has a "larger number of short positions" according to Hughes, although each position is much smaller than the individual long positions.
Shorting is a very risky game, and if the Lowys and the Salteris trust Aboud, it speaks volumes about his market savvy. n AFTER SOmE HEAvY RESEARCH AND mUCH PONDERING, RADAR'S PORTFOLIO

We have engaged in numerous different buy transactions of Elders ordinary shares for our SMSF and each time we buy a few more we try to identify where the pitfalls might be.
The bottom line is that reading the annual report closely suggests that the company's debt position is being over-discounted in the combined price of the ordinaries and the hybrids (ELDPA).
Our view is that any reasonable price for either of the company's two key business assets would see the equity cashed up and the value too transparent to ignore.
The upside is that there are multiple bidders for both major divisions and management should deliver an exit closer to NTA (30 September 2012) than to the current price.
Up to 15 cents, we will purchase 10,000 for the Under the Radar Report portfolio.
