project will span 7 years. Your ﬁrm, Trader-Mo's, is a grocery store chain with 53 stores throughout California. The ﬁrm is proﬁtable, and is expected to
remain so. However, Trader Mo's is considering selling not just food, but stainless steel BBQ's as well. As such they will need an automated welding machine. hiitially, you will purchase the welding machine for $57,000 (tum key installed). The machine will be depreciated over 4 years
using straight line depreciation to a value of zero. The machine will be sold for $15,500 aﬁer 7 years. Revenues in the ﬁrst three years are expected to be $34,000/year, and are expected to be $40,000 in the subsequent 4 years.
Operating expenses are expected to be 40% of revenue in all seven years. The machine will require an immediate increase in inventory from zero to $1200, and the inventory level will grow thereafter at
$40 per year. After 7 years the inventory level will immediately return to zero. Accounts payable will require an immediate increase from zero to $1000, and this level will grow thereafter at $50 per year.
After 7 years the A/P level will immediately return to zero. Accounts receivable will require an increase in one year (not immediately) from zero to $900, and this level will grow thereafter
$60 per year. After 7 years the A/R level will immediately retum to zero. At the moment, the Trader Mo's is solely involved in the grocery business. The BBQ project will be a new area of business for
them At the moment, the beta of Trader Mo's stock is 0.70, and Trader Mo's bonds have a YTM of 7.0%. The ﬁrm is currently
ﬁnanced 30% with equity and 70% with bonds. . Other BBQ makers (such as Weber, Kamado, VCS etc) tend to have a capital structure with a debt to equity ratio of ‘/z (half as
much debt as equity). The BBQ industry has an average equity beta of 1.3, and the YTM on it's debt is 8% typically. The expected return on the market is 10.3%, and the risk free rate is 4%. Inﬂation is expected to be 2.6%. It’s raining in
Baltimore. President Bush is still incompetent. ' Trader Mo‘s will borrow money to purchase the machine. The machine’s purchase is being ﬁnanced by a 5 year bank-loan,
using an interest rate of 10% per year with payments once a year. The loan is structured so that only interest of $5,700 ( = 10% of
the $57,000 loan) is paid in years 1 through 5, and in the 5‘h year the entire $57,000 is paid back as well. The marginal tax rate is 34% per year for all ﬁrms. What is the NPV of the project? Should the project be undertaken? Circle your answer. W. ”7,0610 35

Assume:
The covariance of Crazy] stock and the market is 0.0155. That is: COV(CrazyJ, Market) = 0.0155. The annualized effective YTM on a 30 day US government zero coupon bond is 5.3%, the expected inﬂation rate is 3.2%.
The level ofthe S&P 500 is 1285. The broad stock market has an expected return of 10.3%, and an annualized volatility of 15%. Assume the CAPM is a
reasonable depiction of the real world. In this situation, is the purchase of Crazy] stock a good idea? Why? Show all work.

You are also holding EIGHT 1 month US Treasury T-Bills, each with a current value of $993.75. These T-Bills mature in exactly one month with a nominal value of $ 1000. (They're a 1 month, zero coupon

stock trades at $79 per share now, and your friend expects it to pay a $4.35 dividend per share in three years, and then another
$5.25/share dividend three years after that (i.e. six years from today). Your friend says the stock will trade at $106 per share in
seven years (at which time you expect to sell it - after collecting the two dividends at t=2 and F6). (i) If the above cash ﬂow projections are correct, What is the annualized IRR on the investment? Use linear interpolation.

monthly payments. This interest rate of 15% APR holds for any auto loan from 2 to 5 years in length. The monthly payments
begin in one month. As an example, a 3 year loan has a total of 36 monthly payments, beginning in one month. (CFs at t=1 to 3 6).
However, you have borrowing sources other than just the local bank: The car dealer also ﬁnances cars, and he will be happy to loan you the money. The car dealer has the following ﬁnancing plan:
0 Borrow the $22,000 at 9% APR for "3 years". 0 Actually, web—Em, there are.no payments for the ﬁrst 11 months, then the ﬁrst payment is paid (in 12 months from now), and continues to 36 months (from now). i.e. CFs at F12 to 36.
o The monthly payments (1:12 to 36) are NOT equally sized. Rather they are growing nominally in size by 2% per month. The dealer charges charges a fee up from (paid at time zero to him) if you want to ﬁnance with him at the low low 9% rate. What is the largest dollar amount you would consider paying to the dealer in order to get the 'preferred' rate of 9%?

plan on investing the money in Vanguard's S&P 500 Index mutual fund, with an expected Ml return of 6% per year. In addition to the $2000 you are due to receive in two years, you will also begin making annual deposits into the fund beginning in
9 years. Speciﬁcally, on your 29th birthday you will deposit $2900 (nominal) into the fund, and subsequent annual payments will
grow at a gal rate of 2.0% per year. These deposits will continue until your 60th birthday, when you make the last deposit. You want to retire on your 73'dbirthday, and expect to die on your 94“ birthday. During retirement, you will make annual
withdraws on your 73‘h through 93th birthdays. You want your standard of living (i.e. in real terms) to increase slightly over time
(due to increased medical costs as you age). Hence you have decided to have the annual retirement cash ﬂows increase in real
terms by 1.8% per year. You forecast inﬂation to be 3% per year forever. You are curious as to how well the above plan will provide for you in your "Golden Years". As such, please answer the next two
questions: (i) Given your plan, what is the size of the @ retirement payment you can expect to receive (in nominal terms) ? (i.e. on your
77th birthday). CIRCLE YOUR ANSWER (ii) How does your answer in part (i) compare, in terms of standard of living, to a $70,000 / year income today? That is, will you
