Calculate the value in five years of $1,000 deposited in a savings account today if the account pays interest at a rate of 8 percent per year, compounded annually

1000(FV) = 1469.33

2

Calculate the value in five years of $1,000 deposited in a savings account today if the account pays interest at a rate of 8 percent per year, compounded quarterly

interest per compound = .08/4 = .02
periods compounded = 20
1000(FV_2%,20) = 1485.95

3

A business is considering purchasing a machine that is projected to yield cash savings of $1,000 per year over a 10-year period. Using a 12 percent discount rate, calculate the present value of the savings. (Assume that the cash savings
occur at the end of each year.)

1000(PVOA) = 5,650.22

4

How much will $1,000 deposited in a savings account earning a compound annual interest rate of 6 percent be worth at the end of the following number of years?
a. 3 years
b. 5 years
c. 10 years

a. 1000(FV) = 1,191.02
b. 1000(FV) = 1,338.23
c. 1000(FV) = 1,790.85

5

If you require a 9 percent return on your investments, which would you prefer?
a. $5,000 today
b. $15,000 five years from today
c. $1,000 per year for 15 years

a: PV of 5000 today is 5000
b: PV of a lump sum- $15000(.64993) = 9748.95
c: PV of an ordinary annuity - $1000(8.06069) = 8060.69

option 2b has largest PV so this is best option

The Lancer Leasing Company has agreed to lease a hydraulic trencher to the Chavez Excavation Company for $20,000 a year over the next 8 years. Lease payments are to be made at the beginning of each year. Assuming that Lancer invests these payments at an annual rate of 9 percent, how much will it have accumulated by the end of the 8th year?

20,000(FVAD) = 240,420.73

7

Determine the present value, discounted at 6 percent per year of $50,000 to be received 5 years from today if the interest rate is compounded Semiannually

periods = 10
discounted compound per year = .06/2 = .03
50,000(PV3%, 10) = 37204
(.74409)

Interest Target Capital Structure
Debt 4% 30%
Equity 10% 50%
P.S. 6% 20%

Calculate WACC

.30*.04 + .50*.10 + .20*.06 = WACC

9

You are considering the purchase of a 20-year, 10% coupon bond. The bond pays coupons annually. The required rate of return for similar bonds is 8%. What price are you willing to pay for the bond?

Required rate of return =.08
Principle payment
Interest AKA Coupon payment = 1000*.1 = 100
P_o = 100*PVIFA_8%,20 + 1000*PVA
=(100*9.81815)+(1000*.21455)=1196.365

10

You are considering the purchase of a 20-year, 10% coupon bond. The bond pays coupons semi-annually. The required rate of return is 8%. What price are you willing to pay for the bond?
