B) the part of the variability of the dollar value of the asset that is related to random changes in the exchange rate. C) the residual part of the dollar value variability that is independent of exchange rate movements. D) none of the options C Q32) On the basis of regression equation P = a + b × S + e , we can decompose the variability of the dollar value of the asset, VAR( P ), into two separate components: VAR( P ) = b 2 × VAR( S ) + VAR( e ). The second term in the right-hand side of the equation, VAR( e ) represents A) the part of the variability of the dollar value of the asset that is related to random changes in the exchange rate. B) the part of the variability of the dollar value of the asset that is related to random changes in the exchange rate, as well as the residual part of the dollar value variability that is independent of exchange rate movements. C) the residual part of the dollar value variability that is independent of exchange rate movements. D) none of the options C Q33) Consider a U.S. MNC who owns a foreign asset. If the foreign currency value of the asset is inversely related to changes in the dollar–foreign currency exchange rate, A) the dollar value variability is independent of exchange rate movements. B) the company has a built-in hedge. C) the company has a built-in hedge and the dollar value variability that is independent of exchange rate movements. D) none of the options C Q34) A U.S. firm holds an asset in Great Britain and faces the following scenario: State 1 State 2 State 3 Probability 25% 50% 25% Spot rate \$ 2.20/£ \$ 2.00/£ \$ 1.80/£ P * £ 2,000 £ 2,500 £ 3,000 P \$ 4,400 \$ 5,000 \$ 5,400 where, P * = Pound sterling price of the asset held by the U.S. firm

D) none of the options B Q35) A U.S. firm holds an asset in Great Britain and faces the following scenario: State 1 State 2 State 3 Probability 25% 50% 25% Spot rate \$ 2.20/£ \$ 2.00/£ \$ 1.80/£ P * £ 3,000 £ 2,500 £ 2,000 P \$ 6,600 \$ 5,000 \$ 3,600 where, P * = Pound sterling price of the asset held by the U.S. firm P = Dollar price of the same asset Which of the following would be an effective hedge?

### What students are saying

• 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.
