Lecture 7 page 43 T IME V ALUE OF M ONEY What we want to be able to do: determine how much we must invest today to obtain a specified amount in the future (saving for retirement or for college) determine the expected rate of return on an investment when we know (or estimate) the future cash flows (return on a bond or project) determine the periodic payment on an amortizing loan (mortgage, student loan, or automobile loan) compare investment opportunities with different cash flow characteristics (bank CDs, stocks, projects) determine the number of years needed to accumulate a certain amount or to pay off a loan (saving for a down payment on a home or for a new car) 3 Critical Variables principal interest or return time Compound Interest We use compounding, or compound interest to reflect the fact that many investments earn interest on interest. Use a timeline for all TVM problems...it will make your life easier!! - Richard T. Bliss, Babson University and Terry D. Nixon, Miami University

Lecture 7 page 44 Lump-sum Future Value and Present Value Definitions: PV → Present Value FV → Future Value I or r → annual (interest) rate (annual percentage rate or APR ) M → number of compounding periods per year; the frequency of compounding I/M or r/M → intraperiod, or periodic interest rate N → total number of periods (M × number of years) Future Value If we put $100 in the bank today and earn interest of 5% per year (annual compounding), what do we have after two years? TIMELINE: First year: $100 × (1 + .05) = $1 × 1.05 = $105, or our original $100 plus $5 interest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
