4-8)  You want to buy a car, and a local bank will lend you $20,000.  The loan would be fully amortized over 5 years (60 months), and the nominal interest rate would be 12%, with interest paid monthly.  What is the monthly loan payment?  What is the loan’s EFF%? 


5-9) The Garraty Company has two bond issues outstanding.  Both bonds pay $100 annual interest plus $1000 at maturity.  Bond 1, has a maturity of 15 years, and Bond S has a maturity of 1 year.

b) Why does the longer-term (15 year) bond fluctuate more when interest rates change than does the shorter-term bond (1 year)? 

6-6)The market and Stock J have the following probability distributions:

Probability                                       Rm                                  Rj

0.3                                                    15%                                 20%

0.4                                                       9                                     5

0.3                                                      18                                  12

a)  Calculate the expected rates of return for the market and Stock J.

b) Calculate the standard deviations for the market and Stock J.

6-8)As an equity analyst you are concerned with what will happen to the required return to Universal Toddle Industries’s stock as market conditions change.  Suppose rrf = 5%, rm = 12 % and B UTI = 1.4

a. Under current conditions, what is r uti, the required rate of return on UTI stock? 

b. Now suppose rrf (1) increases to 6% or (2) decreases to 4%.  The slope of the SML remains constant.  How would this affect rm and r uti?

c. Now assume rrf remains at 5% but rm (1) increases to 14% or (2) falls to 11%.  The slope of the SML does not remain constant.  How would these changes affect R uti?

       d1 = 0.24495                                                                N(d1) = 0.59675

       d2 = 0.00000                                                                N(d2) = 0.50000

b) Calculate the next expected dividend per share, D1.  (hint: D0 = 0.4($6.50 = $2.60).  Assume that the past growth rate will continue. 

c) What is Radon’s cost of equity, rs?





12-2)  Refer to problem 12-1.  What would be the additional funds needed if the company’s year end 2013 assets had been $7 million?  Assume that all other numbers, including sales, are the same as in Problem 12-1 and that the company is operating at full capacity.  Why is the AFN different from the one you found in Problem 12-1?  Is the company’s “capital intensity” ratio the same or different?
