Question;Question 1ABC Inc. issued twelve-year, 6 percent semi-annual coupon bonds at par. Today, the bonds are priced at $1112. What is the firm?s after-tax cost of debt if the tax rate is 30%?Question 2If you receive $1,067 at the end of each year for the first three years and $5,304 at the end of each year for the next three years. What is the net present value of this cash flow stream? Assume interest rate is 9.2%.Question 3The nominal rate is 16% compounded monthly. Compute the effective rate.Question 4The risk-free rate is 6.2%, the market risk premium is 8.7%, and the stock?s beta is 1.31. What is the cost of common stock (Ke)?Question 5You have a portfolio of two risky stocks which turns out to have no diversification benefit. The reason you have no diversification is the returns:Answermove perfectly opposite of one another.are too small.are completely unrelated to one another.move perfectly with one another.are too large to offset.Question 7The common stock of ABC Industries is valued at $47.5 a share. The company increases their dividend by 7.6 percent annually and expects their next dividend to be $2.29. What is the required rate of return on this stock?Question 8You have observed the following returns on ABC's stocks over the last five years:10.9%, 16%, -6%, 15.8%, 3.6%What is the arithmetic average returns on the stock over this five-year period.Question 9ABC?s last dividend paid was $0.2, its required return is 13%, its growth rate is 8%, and its growth rate is expected to be constant in the future. What is ABC's expected stock price in 4 years?Question 10If the market value of debt is $137,015, market value of preferred stock is $54,507, and market value of common equity is 103,045, what is the weight of preferred stock?Question 11You would like to create a portfolio that is equally invested in a risk-free asset and two stocks. One stock has a beta of 1.61. What does the beta of the second stock have to be if you want the portfolio to have a beta of 1.19?Question 12The ABC Company has a cost of equity of 14.3 percent, a pre-tax cost of debt of 4.8 percent, and a tax rate of 38 percent. What is the firm?s weighted average cost of capital if the weight of debt is 63 percent?Question 13Suppose a stock had an initial price of $16.5 per share, paid a dividend of $0.9 per share during the year, and had an ending share price of $19.5. What are the percentage returns if you own 54 shares?Question 14You have observed the following returns on ABC's stocks over the last six years:8.8%, 7.8%, 9.9%, -11.7%, 4.6%, -5.1%What is the geometric average returns on the stock over this six-year period.Question 15A stock just paid a dividend of D0 = $3.8. The required rate of return is rs = 19.3%, and the constant growth rate is g = 5.8%. What is the current stock price?Question 16What is the future value of $465 at 13% after 9 years?Question 17Suppose the real rate is 5.65% and the inflation rate is 5.02%. Solve for the nominal rate.Question18How many years will it take for your money to grow from $537 to $740 at 6% compounded semi-annually?An investor puts $25,000 in a risk-free asset and $50,000 in the market portfolio. Compute the beta of his portfolio.Answer0.3320.500.671The ABC Co. has $1,000 face value stock outstanding with a market price of $934. The stock pays interest annually, matures in 12 years, and has a yield to maturity of 10.6 percent. What is the annual coupon amount?Suppose that today's stock price is $43.9. If the required rate on equity is 16.7% and the growth rate is 7.5%, compute the expected dividend (i.e. compute D1)You want to create a portfolio as risky as the market. Suppose you invest your money in Stocks A, B, C, and the risk-free asset. Compute your investment in Stock C (i.e. solve for weight of Stock C)?Stock Weights BetaA 19 1.1B 15 0.3C? 1.6Rf??ABC company?s market value of common stock is $200 million, preferred stock is $300 million, and debt is $500 million. Suppose that the cost of equity is 7%, the before-tax cost of debt is 2.7%, cost of preferred stock is 3.9%, and the tax rate is 29%.Compute the WACC.ABC Company's last dividend was $2.9. The dividend growth rate is expected to be constant at 9% for 3 years, after which dividends are expected to grow at a rate of 3% forever. The firm's required return (rs) is 17%. What is its current stock price (i.e. solve for Po)?
