for money in the future by borrowing or invest—
ing is the current market interest rate. E The present value (PV) of a cash ﬂow is its value
in terms of cash today. 3.5 The NPV Decision Rule E The net present value (NPV) of a project is
PWBen‘efits) — PV(Costs) % A good project is one with a positive net present
value. p The NPV Decision Rule states that when choosing
from aniong a set of alternatives, choose the one
with the highest NPV. The NPV of a project is
equivalent to the cash value today of the project. 9" Regardless of our preferences for cash today ver~ Su's cash in the future, we should always first

the vehicle’s price from $30,000 to $28,000. The marketing group estimates that this
rebate will increase sales over the next year from 40,000 to 55,000 vehicles. Suppose
Honda’s proﬁt margin with the rebate is $6000 per vehicle. If the change in sales is the
only consequence of this decision, what are its costs and beneﬁts? Is it a good idea? You are an international shrimp trader. A food producer in the Czech Republic offers
to pay you 2 million Czech koruna today in exchange for a year's supply of frozen
shrimp. Your Thai supplier will provide you with the same supply for 3 million Thai

of the bonus should you choose? What is its value? b. Suppose that if you receive the stock bonus, you are required to hold it for at
least one year. What can you say about the value of the stock bonus now? What
will your decision depend on? Valuation Principle Bubba is a shrimp farmer. In an ironic twist, Bubba is allergic to shellfish, so he
cannot eat any shrimp. Each day he has a oneton supply of shrimp. The market
price of shrimp is $10,000 per ton. a. What is the value of a ton of shrimp to him? b. Would this value change if he Were not allergic to shrimp? Why or why not? Brett has almond orchards, but he is sick of almonds and prefers to eat walnuts
instead. The owner of the walnut orchard next door has offered to swap this year’s
crop with him in an even exchange. Assume he produces 1000 tons of almonds and
his neighbor produces 800 tons of walnuts. If the market price of almonds is $100
per ton and the market price of walnuts is $1.10 per ton: a. Should he make the exchange? b. Does it matter whether he prefers almonds or walnuts? Why or why not? Interest Rates and the Time Value of Money You have $100 and a bank is offering 5% interest on deposits. If you deposit the

The main drawback of the machine is that it is slow. It takes one year to
manufacture $100. However, once built, the machine will last forever and will
require no maintenance. The machine can be built immediately, but it will cost
$1000 to build. Your friend wants to know if she should invest the money to
construct it: If the interest rate is 9.5% per year, what should your friend do? . How would your answer to Problem 14 change if the machine takes one year to build? The British government has a consol bond outstanding paying £100 per year

What is the value of the bond immediately before a payment is made? . What is the present value of $1000 paid at the end of each of the next 100 years if the interest rate is 7% per year? . When you purchased your car, you took out a fiveyear annualpayment loan with an interest rate of 6% per year. The annual payment on the car is $5000. You have
just made a payment and have now decided to pay the loan off by repaying the
outstanding balance. What is the payoff amount if a. you have owned the car for one year (so there are four years left on the loan)?
b. you have owned the car for four years (so there is one year left on the loan)? . Your grandmother has been putting $1000 into a savings account on every birthday since your first (that is, when you turned one). The account pays an interest rate of
3%. How much money will be in the account on your eighteenth birthday immediately
after your grandmother makes the deposit on that birthday? Assume that your parents wanted to have $160,000 saved for college by your eigh teenth birthday and they started saving on your first birthday. If they saved the same amount each year on your birthday and earned 8% per year on their investments, a. how much would they have to save each year to reach their goal? b. if they think you will take five years instead of four to graduate and decide to
have $200,000 saved just in case, how much more would they have to save each
year to reach their new goal? . A rich relative has bequeathed you a growing perpetuity. The first payment will occur in a year and will be $1000. Each year after that, you will receive a payment
on the anniversary of the last payment that is 8% larger than the last payment. This
pattern of payments will go on forever. If the interest rate is 12% per year, a. what is today's value of the bequest? b. what is the value of the bequest immediately after the first payment is made? You are thinking of building a new machine that will save you $1000 in the first
year. The machine will then begin to wear out so that the savings decline at a rate
of 2% per year forever. What is the present value of the savings if the interest rate
is 5% per year? ‘5 You work for a pharmaceutical company that has developed a new drhg. The patent
on the drug will last 17 years. You expect that the drug’s profits will be $2 million
in its ﬁrst year and that this amount will grow at a rate of 5% per year for the next
17 years. Once the patent expires, other pharmaceutical companies will be able to
produce the same drug and competition will likely drive profits to zero. What is the
present value of the new drug if the interest rate is 10% per year? Week 2 Page I of 4 The Valuation Principle: The Foundation of Financial Decision Making/NPV and
ime Value of Money  Discussion Wk 2 Under doc sharing tab is a grading rubric that shows how the threaded discussions for this class will be graded. To
receive the maximum points for this exercise you are going to have to participate in the discussion on multiple
occasions throughout the week. You must develop your own response as well as respond to the responses of at least 2
of your fellow students. Once you understand the concept and can solve the problem, heip your fellow students who may be having difﬁculty. FIN 100 Week 2 discussion I know that it may not seem possible looking at the situation over the last 2 years but, there have been numerous
studies that show that the US stock market has had an average return of 12% over the past 60 years. Assume that
you start putting $100/mo into the stock market today and that you earned the average return stated above and
continue until your retirement age of 65, how much would you have when you retire? Now calculate what you would
have had at age 65 if you had started this investment strategy at age 18. Whiie each of you will have different
numbers for the first situation, you should all have the same number for the second situation and should be abie to
discuss how the element of time effect’s your outcomes. iﬁRespond @Expand All Print View Responses E Response A @ Q Discussion Wk2
