 Research and implementation as an investment alternative: the effect of the incremental tax credit. (Federal Taxation)
This limit favors the taxpayer, because a computed fixed base percentage in excess of 16% would result in a larger base in the computation year which, in turn, would lower the incremental spending that would otherwise be eligible for the credit.
The base amount is the product of the fixed base percentage and the average gross receipts for the four years immediately preceding the computation year.
Because the base figure was a moving average of annual RandE expenditures, growth in spending in the current year was included in the base period for the purpose of computing the subsequent year's incremental spending.

 Baseball 101: On-base average plus slugging percentage - 06/12/05
A fundamental rule of offense is that, no matter his batting average, a player's on-base percentage (number of hits, walks and times hit by a pitch divided by overall number of at-bats, not just official at-bats) should be equivalent to a very good batting average:.340, at least.
OPS reveals two essential facets of offense: how often a player gets on base, and how much of his ability to get on base is the result of hitting the ball hard and for extra bases, which is the best method for driving in runs.
He thwarted the common-sense evaluation that getting on base via walk is as important to a team's offense as getting on base via a single.

 alexking.org: Blog > On-base Percentage
Yes, speed does make a difference, but if you get on base and are relying on a bad hitter to get you home, you’re not going to make it as often as you would if you had a good hitter to get you home.
First, if you get on base without hitting a home run, whether you score or not is almost entirely dependent on the hitters behind you, not anything you have control over.
Watch the pitcher and defense for the first batter of an inning, then watch when there’s a baserunner.

As with baseball's on-base percentage, this result is intuitive - customer loyalty lowers sales and acquisition cost per customer by amortizing it across a longer lifetime - leading to some extraordinary financial results.
