Q1. Henly, Inc. determined that $1,500,000 is needed for cash transactions made during the next year. Each time Henly deposits money in its checking account, a charge of $12.95 is assessed to cover clerical costs. If Henly can hold marketable securities that yield 4.5%, and then convert these securities to cash at a cost of only the $12.95 deposit charge, what is the optimal cash amount C* to transfer from marketable securities to the checking account according to the Baumol Model?
Q2. Base on problem Q1, Henly's financial managers have not been following the Baumol Model. Instead, they have been transferring cash from marketable securities less frequently, namely, transferring cash every 2 weeks. What total cash cost including holding costs and transactions costs could Henly save by transferring the optimal cash amount C* rather than this larger transfer amount?
Q3.Using the data from problem Q1, Henly's financial managers are adjusting their optimal cash amount C* from the Baumol Model to respond to changing market conditions. Interest rates have declined so that their marketable securities now yield 3.25% and their bank raised its deposit charge from $12.95 to $16.95. By what amount will Henly's optimal cash amount C* increase from what you calculated in problem Q1?
Q4. If it takes $0.85 U.S. dollars to purchase one Swiss franc, how many Swiss francs can one U.S. dollar buy?
