(5 points) A stock is currently selling for $68 per share. You have $41,000 to invest:

What is the maximum number of shares you can buy if the initial margin is 60%?

What is your percent return if the stock price increases to $71?

What would your percent return have been if you had simply purchased the stock

without margin?

(5 points) Suppose that you hold an investment for 7 months, during which time the rate of

return is 4.6%. What is your annualized return?

Answer #1

Question 1:

(a) Capital Gains Yield = (Final - Initial Price)/Final Price = (52-50)/50 = 2/50 = 0.04 = 4%

(b) Dividend Yield = Dividend/Initial price = 0.52/50 = 0.0104 = 1.04%

(c) Total return = Capital Gain yield + Dividend Yield = 4 + 1.04 = 5.04%

(d) Dollar return = 450*52 + 450*0.52 - 450*50 = $1,134
