Jason Wilcox Assignement 1 Investing P1.3 A. The Pangs can buy 1000 shares in the Utility Company. This is found by taking their \$50,000 they have to invest and dividing that by the cost of share which is \$50. \$50,000/\$50= 1000. B.The Pangs will receive \$1700 a year after taxes from their investment in the Utility Company. This is found by: 1000 shares times \$2 per share= \$2000 multiplied by 15% which is \$300. \$2000-\$300= \$1700 per year after taxes. C. The total amount the Pangs will have from their investment after 10 years is \$67,000. 1700 after taxes times 10 years plus the original 50,000= 67,000. D. The yearly amount the Pang’s would receive from the bond would be \$1675. 50,000 x .5(5%) 2500 = 2500. 2500 x .33(33%, Pang’s tax bracket) = 825/ 2500-825=1675. E. The total amount the Pang’s would have after from their investment in bonds after 10 years would be \$66,750. 1675(annual amount from interest) x 10 years= 16,750 + 50,000 original funds= 66,750. F.
