1. A particular security's default risk premium is 6 percent. For all securities, the inflation
risk premium is 3 percent and the real interest rate is 2.5 percent. The security's liquidity risk
premium is 1 percent and maturity risk premium is 2 percent. The security has no special covenants.
What is the security's equilibrium rate of return?
2. Suppose that the current one-year rate (one-year spot rate) and expected one-year Tbill
rates over the following three years (i.e., years 2, 3, and 4, respectively) are as follows:
1R1 = 3.0%, E(2R1) = 4.0%, E(3R1) = 12.0%, E(4R1) = 14.0%,
Using the unbiased expectations theory, what is the current (long-term) rate for four-year-maturity
Treasury securities (1R4)?
3. HydroTech Corp stock was $50 per share a year ago when it was purchased. Since

what is your portfolio return?

7. Team Sports has 6 million shares of common stock outstanding, 1 million shares of preferred stock outstanding, and 200 thousand bonds ($1,000 par). If the common shares are selling for $24.50 per share, the preferred share are selling for $20 per share, and the bonds are selling for 65 percent of par, what would be the weight used for equity in the computation of Team's WACC?
8. Suppose that TipsNToes, Inc.'s capital structure features 40 percent equity, 60 percent debt, and that its before-tax cost of debt is 9 percent, while its cost of equity is 15 percent. If the appropriate weighted average tax rate is 25 percent, what will be TipsNToes's WACC?
9. Suppose you sell a fixed asset for $50,000 when its book value is $60,000. If your company's marginal tax rate is 40%, what will be the effect on cash flows of this sale (i.e., what will be the after-tax cash flow of this sale)?
10. Your company has spent $500,000 on research to develop a new computer game. The firm is planning to spend $100,000 on a machine to produce the new game. Shipping and installation costs of the machine will be capitalized and depreciated; they total $5,000. The machine
has an expected life of 3 years, a $100,000 estimated resale value, and falls under the MACRS 5-Year class life. Revenue from the new game is expected to be $500,000 per year, with costs of $200,000 per year. The firm has a tax rate of 35 percent, an opportunity cost of capital of 10 percent, and it expects net working capital to increase by $100,000 at the beginning of the project. What will be the net cash flow for year one of this project?

Question #9 is not on there......
Expert:  linda_us replied 1 year ago.
Solution for Number 9
Loss on sale = 60000-50000 = 10000
After tax Cash Flow = 50000 + 10000 x 40% (Tax Savings) = 50000+ 4000 = 54000
Please do rate my solution.
