Use the following to answer the next three questions. Three months ago, you purchased 1000 shares of ABC stock on margin at \$15/share. The initial and maintenance margins are 60% and 40%, respectively. Your broker charges you a 6% annual interest rate on borrowed funds. You've received a \$1 dividend per share over the course of your investment. ABC trades for \$12/share today. Find your current margin. Round intermediate steps and your final answer to four decimals and enter your answer in decimal format (EX: .XXXX).

 4.29 6.43 15 10

Initial margin ==> 100*15*60% ==> 9000

Interest ==> 1000*15*40%*6%

Decrease in value of stocks ==> 1000*(15-12) ==> 3000

Dividends ==> 1000*1 ==>1000

Current Margin ==>(9000-36-3000+1000)==>6640

value of stocks ==> 1000*12 ==> 12000

Therefore the current margin ==> 6640/12000 ==>0.5533
