ASSIGNMENTS FROM THE READINGS 2 Week 2 - Assignments from the Readings Chapter 5: Problem 5.3 a. If Sharon were risk-indifferent, which investments would she select? Explain why. In case when Sharon is facing any risk that definitely needs to pick up funding of X as well as Y for the reason that they already acquire larger earnings than that of the 12% that was the demanded income. “The inclination that is associated with risk factor involves no alteration in proceeds that is needed in favor of amplify in the risk factor” (Gitman, 2006, p. 230). b. If she were risk-averse, which investments would she select? Why? In case when Sharon followed the situation of risk-averse, she definitely picks the X venture for the reason that the elevated proceeds along with the lesser risk factor “the approach in favor of risk at which higher levels of earnings must be needed on behalf of a higher risk factor” (Gitman, 2006, p. 230). c. If she were risk-seeking, which investments would she select? Why? In any situation when Sharon is facing the risk-seeking factor she needs to choose speculation Y along with Z for the reason that they have a sky-scraping risk factor devoid of boost up proceeds, “the inclination in the way of risk that involves lesser proceeds in favor of enhancement in risk factor” (Gitman, 2006, p. 230). d. Given the traditional risk preference behavior exhibited by financial managers, which investment would be preferred? Why? “Most of the higher level managers seem to be the risk-takers; intended for a prescribed augment in the risk factor, they entail a boost in the income” (Gitman, 2006, p. 230). For the reason that many managers in finance department seems to be risk-takers, the selected funding must be investment X as it gives a raise in income intended for a boost up in the risk factor.

ASSIGNMENTS FROM THE READINGS 3 Chapter 5: Problem 5.4 a. Determine the range of the rates of return for each of the two projects. “The method of calculating the range includes deducting the negative consequence from the positive one” (Gitman, 2006, p. 231). Expansion A: 24% - 16% = 8% Expansion B: 30% - 10% = 20% b. Which project is less risky? Why? The range that is calculated by the above formula the upshot is slighter in favor of Expansion A than Expansion B; as a result Expansion A seems to be less uncertain assignment. c. If you were making the investment decision, which one would you choose? Why? What does this imply about your feelings toward risk? In case when I am investing at some place I definitely recommend Project A. in view of the fact that the primary venture of both the tasks seems to be similar with the probability of income around 20%, I go for the positive profit 24% as well as negative proceeds of 16%. Expansion A seems to be less risky; consequently my risk-averse stance.
