If the interest rate is 12 percent, which is the most valuable prize? Answer: a. PV = \$100,000 b. PV = \$180,000/1.12 5 = \$102,137 c. PV = \$11,400/0.12 = \$95,000 d. PV = \$19,000 × [Annuity factor, 12%, t = 10] PV = \$19,000 × 5.650 = \$107,350 e. PV = \$6,500/(0.12 - 0.05) = \$92,857 Prize (d) is the most valuable because it has the highest present value Question 2 Consider the following three stocks: a. Stock A is expected to provide a dividend of \$10 per share forever. b. Stock B is expected to pay a dividend of \$5 next year. Thereafter, dividend growth is expected to be 4 percent per year forever. c. Stock C is expected to pay a dividend of \$5 next year.
