Three factors that distinguish the securities: Bond Duration Bond Safety Municipal Bond 20 years Safe Corporate Bond 20 years Less Safe The importance of the non-taxable income feature usually makes the municipal bond the one with the lowest interest rate. The corporate bond generally will have the highest interest rate. 15-2 As this is a situation of “neither input nor output fixed,” incremental analysis is required. C- D B- C B- D D- A ∆ Cost \$25 \$50 \$75 \$25 ∆ Benefit \$4 \$6.31 \$10.31 \$5.96 ∆ Rate of Return 9.6% 4.5% 6.2% 20% Using the incremental rates of return one may determine the preferred alternative at any interest rate. For interest rates between: The problem here concerns Alternative C. C is preferred for 4.5% < Interest Rate < 9.6%. 15-3 Lease : Pay \$267 per month for 24 months. Purchase: A = \$9,400 (A/P, 1%, 24) = \$9,400 (0.0471) = \$442.74 Salvage (resale) value = \$4,700 (a) Purchase Rather than Lease ∆Monthly payment = \$442.71 - \$267 = \$175.74 ∆Salvage value = \$4,700 - \$0 = \$4,700 ∆ Rate of Return PW of Cost = PW of Benefit 0% 4.5% 9.6% 20% B C D A

\$175.74 (P/A, i%, 24) = \$4,700 (P/A, i%, 24) = \$4,700/\$175.74 = 26.74 i = 0.93% per month Thus, the additional monthly payment of \$175.74 would yield an 11.2% rate of return.
