Faris Nasif AL- Shubiri
International Journal of Business and Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v5n10p137
Abstract: Financial firms make up a substantial fraction of the domestic equity market. A number of studies subsequently used different conceptual and methodological approaches to model equity return of financial services firms. Movement of the stock price as the consequence of the movement of the micro and macroeconomic factors is strongly supported by the literature review. Amman Stock Exchange in Jordan is inefficient in weak form. The sample of study includes the 14 commercial banks of Amman Stock Exchange for the period 2005 -2008. Simple and multiple regression analysis is conducted to find out the relationship microeconomic factors with the stock price and found highly positive significant relationship between market price of stock and net asset value per share; market price of stock dividend percentage, gross domestic product, and negative significant relationship on inflation and lending interest rate but not always significant on some years of Amman Stock Exchange in Jordan.

Faris Nasif Al-Shubiri
International Journal of Economics and Financial Issues , 2012,
Abstract: This paper examines whether the total debt ratio and bank ratio of listed companies have any impact on their fixed investment during the years in 2004-2009, and whether this impact, if it existed, differed among companies with differing investment opportunities. The study has reveals the total debt ratio did have a negative impact on fixed investment among Jordanian listed companies. It has also been found that the bank ratio had a stronger impact on fixed investment than the total debt ratio.
Capital structure and value firm: an empirical analysis of abnormal returns
Faris Nasif AL-SHUBIRI
Economia : Seria Management , 2010,
Abstract: This study investigates whether capital structure is value relevant for the equity investor. In this sense, the paper links empirical corporate finance issues with investment analysis. This study also integrates the Miller-Modigliani (MM) framework (1958) into an investment approach by estimating abnormal returns on leverage portfolios in the time-series for different risk classes. For most risk classes, abnormal returns decline in firm leverage. Descriptive statistics, simple and multiple regressions are used to test the hold indicator significance. The results reflect that the designed measures are the negative relationship between returns and leverage could also be due to the market’s pricing of the firm’s ability to raise funds if need be. Further avenues for research in this area include examining the stock return performance of companies based on the changes in leverage of the firms relative to their risk classes. It would be particularly noteworthy to examine the rate at which the information content of said changes is incorporated in the share prices of companies as well as in their long run returns This study encompasses all non-financial firms across the five sectors that cover all the various classes of risk. This study investigates neither the determinants of multiple capital structure choices nor changes in capital structures over time. Our main goal is to explore the effect of capital structure on cumulative abnormal returns. This study also examine a firm’s cumulative average abnormal returns by measuring leverage at the firm level and at the average level for the firm’s industry. And also examine other factors, such as size, price earnings, market-to-book and betas.
Capital Structure and Market Power: Evidence from Jordanian Banks

Managing Global Transitions , 2011,
Abstract: This paper provides new insights into the way in which the capitalstructure and market power and capital structure and profitability arerelated. We used sample data of fourteen banks listed on the AmmanStock Exchange for the period from 2005 to 2008.We examine the dependentvariable, which are expressed by total debt deflated by totalassets, while the independent variables are Tobin Q, Growth, Profitability,Size, Ownership, Risk and Tangibility ratio. The OLS estimation resultsindicate that, at lower and higher ranges of Tobin’s Q, banks employhigher debt, and reduce their debt at intermediate range. This isdue to the complex interaction of market conditions, agency costs, andbankruptcy costs. We also show the saucer-shaped relation betweencapital structure and profitability because of the interplay of agencycosts, costs of external financing and interest tax-shield. We find thatsize tangibility variables have a positive influence both on capital structureand on the other hand on growth, while risk and ownership variableshave a negative influence on capital structure.
Financial and Non Financial Determinants of Corporate Social Responsibility
Faris Nasif AL- Shubiri,Abedalfattah Zuhair Al-abedallat,Marwan Mohammad Abu Orabi
Asian Economic and Financial Review , 2012,
Abstract: Accounting, economic, social and political, and slack resources theories provide different perspectives to addressing corporate social responsibility in relation to disclosure, corporate financial performance e.t.c. This paper aims to identify the determinants financial and non financial of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Jordan .The annual reports determine a sample of 60 industrial companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange for a period from 2006 to 2010 in Jordan were used as a basis for the study. The results of the analysis imply that companies that are expected to be large in size firm, age of firm, maintaining growth and are highly leveraged are more likely to voluntary disclose social responsibility information. The result lends partial support to agency and political economy theories.

Nutritional and Safety Evaluation of Local Weight-Gain Formulas in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) Markets  [PDF]
Nora Abdullah Al-Faris
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2014.514146
Abstract:

This study was conducted to examine the nutritional content, contamination levels, and biological effects of 3 local prepared formulas. Formula (1) contained mixed nuts; formula (2) contained moghat, honey and royal jelly, while formula (3) contained honey, fenugreek and royal jelly. Groups of albino rats (90 rats) were randomly allocated to diets of control group or 1 - 3 treatment groups. The tested diets contained 15% carbohydrate. The weight and food intake were recorded. Blood tests were conducted to determine total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, urea, creatinine, white blood cell count (WBC), red blood cell count (RBC), haemoglobin (HB), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and haematocrit (HCT). Results showed that bacterial contamination was found in formula (1) and formula (3). Fungal contamination was detected in formula (2) and formula (3). Body weight increased significantly in the rats fed treatment formulas compared to the control group. The blood tests indicated significant increases in the levels of glucose, WBC, HCT, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides as well as a significant decrease in HDL level in the group (2) was fed formula (1) the control. In conclusion, these findings indicate that these local formulas may not be safe, and further studies are required to understand the consequences of a long-term consumption of these formulas.

Patterns of Caffeinated Energy Drinks Consumption among Adolescents and Adults in Hail, Saudi Arabia  [PDF]
Mo’ez Al-Islam Ezzat Faris
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2014.52021
Abstract: Caffeinated energy drinks have become more popular in the last decades, especially amongst adolescents and young adults in different parts of the globe. The study aims to investigate the frequency of energy-drink consumption and associated factors in an arbitrary group of adults and adolescents living in Hail/Saudi Arabia. A cross-sectional study was conducted and included which randomly selected 1062 participants (867 males and 195 females) from universities, colleges, middle-to-higher schools and social settings. Data collection was conducted using a self-administered standard tested questionnaire. The current study revealed about 46% had drunk energy drinks, while about 54% did not ever drink energy drinks. Out of the energy drinks consumers, 37% started drinking during the primary school, 64% consumed energy drinks on a daily basis, and 44% consumed two or more cans per day. Reasons behind not taking energy drinks were the belief that they are unhealthy drinks (about two-thirds of non-drinkers), and lack of curiosity for energy drinks (18%). Other reasons such as unaccepted taste, thought to be obesogenic, and the possibility of getting addicted were also reported. From all participants, only 23% and 4% knew about the presence of caffeine and taurine, respectively, in energy drinks. Unreliable resources were the major sources of knowledge about energy drinks and their health effects. Awareness of community about the ingredients and potential hazards of energy drinks should be raised and encouraged by designing and implementing educational programs.
A Combination Approach to Community Detection in Social Networks by Utilizing Structural and Attribute Data  [PDF]
Nasif Muslim
Social Networking (SN) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/sn.2016.51002
Abstract: Community detection is one of the important tasks of social network analysis. It has significant practical importance for achieving cost-effective solutions for problems in the area of search engine optimization, spam detection, viral marketing, counter-terrorism, epidemic modeling, etc. In recent years, there has been an exponential growth of online social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and Tumblr, as people can easily connect to each other in the Internet era overcoming geographical barriers. This has brought about new forms of social interaction, dialogue, exchange and collaboration across diverse social networks of unprecedented scales. At the same time, it presents new challenges and demands more effective, as well as scalable, graphmining techniques because the extraction of novel and useful knowledge from massive amount of graph data holds the key to the analysis of social networks in a much larger scale. In this research paper, the problem to find communities within social networks is considered. Existing community detection techniques utilize the topological structure of the social network, but a proper combination of the available attribute data, which represents the properties of the participants or actors, and the structure data of the social network graph is promising for the detection of more accurate and meaningful communities.

Energy and Power Engineering (EPE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/epe.2013.54B163
Abstract:

The Buck converter with LC input filter operating in discontinuous output current mode has a high power factor with a constant duty cycle. A Buck converter in this operation mode can reduce the reverse recovery loss of the freewheeling diode thus increase the efficiency. The operation, power factor analysis and modeling of the converter are studied in this paper. Experimental results are presented to verify the theoretical predictions.
