Note that this is a circular argument, for this is how p is derived. We have the total value and a summary in the following table: Year 1 2 3 Cash Flows 134.9859 182.2119 245.9603 74.0818 100.0000 134.9859 54.8812 74.0818 40.6570 Risk Neutral 0.4104 0.1684 0.0691 Probabilities 0.5896 0.4839 0.2979 0.3477 0.4280 0.2050 Expected Cash Flow 99.0753 98.1591 97.2514 Discount Factor 1.0700 1.1449 1.2250 Total PV (sum) PV of Cash Flow 92.5937 85.7360 79.3861 257.7158 n Question 14.3 Using risk neutral methodology, we can simply repeat Problem 14.2 with the new cash flows. We have the following: Year 1 2 3 Cash Flows 44.9859 92.2119 155.9603 –15.9182 10.0000 44.9859 –35.1188 –15.9182 –49.3430 Risk Neutral 0.4104 0.1684 0.0691 Probabilities 0.5896 0.4839 0.2979 0.3477 0.4280 0.2050 Risk neutral expected value 9.0753 8.1591 7.2514 Discount Factor 1.0700 1.1449 1.2250 Total PV (sum) PV of Cash Flow 8.4816 7.1265 5.9193 21.5274 Note that if we tried using the traditional DCF approach as in Problem 14.1, we’d have to determine a new
