Question

You are planning to retire in 17 years and figure you will need $2 million in your 401K. Your current balance is $300,000 and you plan to make 17 annual contributions of equal size over the next 17 years beginning one year from today. How much does the size of your payment need to be to meet your goals if you expect your 401K to earn 7% per year?

Group of answer choices

a. $29,001.42

b. $39,958.00

c. None of the above

d. $34,122.83

Which of the following statements is CORRECT?

Group of answer choices

a. One defect of the IRR method is that it does not take account of the time value of money.

b. One defect of the IRR method is that it does not take account of cash flows over a project’s full life.

c. One defect of the IRR method is that it does not take account of the cost of capital.

d. One defect of the IRR method is that it assumes that the cash flows to be received from a project can be reinvested at the IRR itself, and that assumption is often not valid.

e. One defect of the IRR method is that it values a dollar received today the same as a dollar that will not be received until sometime in the future.

Answer #1

1.

FV = $2,000,000

PV = $300,000

Nper = 17

Rate = 7%

Amount of annual contribution can be calculated by using the
following excel formula:

=PMT(rate,nper,pv,fv)

=PMT(7%,17,-300000,2000000)

= $34,122.83

**Amount of annual contribution = $34,122.83**

2.

**One defect of the IRR method is that it assumes that the
cash flows to be received from a project can be reinvested at the
IRR itself, and that assumption is often not valid.**

IRR is the rate at which NPV is zero. The correct answer is option D. Other given options are wrong.

dollar that will be received until sometime in the future
c.

1. Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
A. One problem of the IRR method is that it does not consider
all cash flows of a project.
B. One problem of the IRR method is that it does not take into
account the time value of money.

the reinvestment of cash inflows.

is valued...

1. Multiple internal rates or return occur when:
Select one:
A. The project’s cash flows are larger earlier in the life of
the project.
B. The project’s cash flows are larger later in the life of the
project.
C. When the project’s cash flows experience normal cash flow
streams (i.e. one sign change).
D. When the project’s cash flows experience non-normal cash flow
streams (i.e. two or more sign changes).
E. When the IRR is equal to the WACC.

Suppose you are evaluating a project with the cash inflows shown
in the following table. Your boss has asked you to calculate the
project’s net present value (NPV). You don’t know the project’s
initial cost, but you do know the project’s regular, or
conventional, payback period is 2.50 years.
The project's annual cash flows are:

Suppose you wish to retire forty years from today. You determine
that you need $40,000 per year once you retire, with the first
retirement funds withdrawn one year from the day you retire. You
estimate that you will earn 6% per year on your retirement funds
during retirement and 10% while working; and that you will need
funds up to and including your 25th birthday after retirement. How
much must you deposit in an account today so that you have...

To live comfortably in retirement, you decide you will need to
save $2 million by the time you are 65 (you are 30 years old
today). You will start a new retirement savings account today and
contribute the same amount of money on every birthday up to and
including your 65th birthday. Using TVM principles, how much must
you set aside each year to make sure that you hit your target goal
if the interest rate is 5%? What flaws...
