Linda there are 2 multiple choice and 8 essay question. We have 2 hours to finish the exam. We need to show the work on the essay. Here is the exam:


 


















1. (TCO A) Which of the following does NOT always increase a company's market value? (Points : 5)



Increasing the expected growth rate of sales
Increasing the expected operating profitability (NOPAT/Sales)
Decreasing the capital requirements (Capital/Sales)
Decreasing the weighted average cost of capital
Increasing the expected rate of return on invested capital


















2. (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points : 5)



The NPV, IRR, MIRR, and discounted payback (using a payback requirement of 3 years or less) methods always lead to the same accept/reject decisions for independent projects.
For mutually exclusive projects with normal cash flows, the NPV and MIRR methods can never conflict, but their results could conflict with the discounted payback and the regular IRR methods.
Multiple IRRs can exist, but not multiple MIRRs. This is one reason some people favor the MIRR over the regular IRR.
If a firm uses the discounted payback method with a required payback of 4 years, then it will accept more projects than if it used a regular payback of 4 years.
The percentage difference between the MIRR and the IRR is equal to the project’s WACC.











3. (TCO D) The Ramirez Company's last dividend was $1.75. Its dividend growth rate is expected to be constant at 25% for 2 years, after which dividends are expected to grow at a rate of 6% forever. Its required return (rs) is 12%. What is the best estimate of the current stock price?

So, considering only this information, should they stay in business for those three months or should they close down right now? Provide your reasoning.
