Problem Set II Problem P9  17: Jack Hammer FV (Table 1) at 11% discount rate 2.00 x .901 = \$1.80 2.20 x .802 = \$1.79 2.40 x .731 = \$1.75 33.00 x .731 = \$24.12 -------- \$29.46 Problem P9 - 22: Alternative Present Values: Your rich godfather has offered you a choice of one of the three following alternatives: \$10,000 now; \$2,000 a year for eight years; or \$24,000 at the end of eight years. Solution: (first alternative) Present value of 10,000 received now: 10,000 (second alternative) Present Value of annuity of 2,000 for eight years: Appendix D PVa=AxPVifa =2,000xPVifa (11%,8years) =2,000x5.146 =10,292 (third alternative) Present value of 24,000 received…show more content…
The preferred stock price will increase Problem P10  21: Analogue Technology has preferred stock outstanding that pays an annual dividend of \$12. It has a price of \$110. What is the required rate of return (yield) on the preferred stock? Pp = Dp / Kp in reverse Kp = Dp / Pp Kp= 12 / 110 = .109 = 11 % Problem P10  24: Friedman Steel Company will pay a dividend of \$1.50 per share in the next 12 months (D1). The required rate of return (Ke) is 10 percent and the constant growth rate is 5 percent. For Problem 24 we computed the present value of shares of common stock with a constant growth return. Problem 24 breaks down as follows: Po = present value of common stock with constant growth returns Do = most recent per-share dividend, which is \$1.50 in this scenario Ke = required return or the discount rate for each year, which is 10% g = constant growth rate or rate of growth, which is 5% A. Compute Po Po =Do (1 + g)1 / (1 + Ke)1, [\$1.50 (1 + .05)1 / (1 + .10)1 = [\$1.575 / (1 + .10)1] = \$1.43 (PV of expected future returns using the Discounted Cash Flow formula ("DCF") which leads to the Constant Growth formula as follows: Answer: Po = D1 / (Ke - g), [\$1.43 / (.10 - .05)] = \$28.60 For parts b, c, and d in this problem all variables remain the same except the one specifically changed. Each question is independent of the others.) B. Assume Ke, the required rate of
