Question

Assume that the risk-free rate is 5%, the risk-adjusted discount
rate is 10%, the expected cash flow for *t* = 1 is 495, and
the expected cash flow for *t* = 2 is 508.2

a)Assume that the cash flow risk increases geometrically through time. Compute the present value of the cash flow stream using the certainty equivalent method.

b) Assume that the cash flow risk remains constant through time. Compute the present value of the cash flow stream using the risk-adjusted discount rate method.

Answer #1

a) To calculate the present value of the cash flow where Cash flow is growing | |||||||

and using the certainty equivalent method, it means in risk adjusted cash flow risk free rate to be deducted or we can say when it is a thinking that cash flow is higher but riskier then certainty equivalent method is adopted | |||||||

To calculate PV of the cash Flow formula is =CF(t1)/((risk adjusted discount rate-risk free rate)-growth rate) | |||||||

To calculate Growth rate =(t2 cash flow-t1 cash flow)/t1 cash flow | |||||||

=(508.2-495)/495 | 2.67% | ||||||

PV of the Cash flow=495/((10%-5%)-2.67%) | $ 21,244.64 | ||||||

b) to calculate the PV of the constant cash flow to perpetuity formula is | |||||||

=CF(T1)/risk adjusted discount rate | |||||||

=495/10% | $ 4,950.00 |

A project has an expected risky cash flow of $300, in year t= 3.
The risk-free rate is 5percent, the market risk premium is 8percent
and the project's beta is 1.25. Calculate the certainty equivalent
cash flow for year t=3.

In the ________________ method, expected cash flows are used in
the valuation process, and the risk adjustment is made to the
discount rate. Question 20 options: Certainty equivalent

Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the
expected rate of return on the market is 17%. I am buying a firm
with an expected perpetual cash flow of $2,000 but am unsure of its
risk. If I think the beta of the firm is 0.4, when in fact the beta
is really 0.8, how much more will I offer for the firm than it is
truly worth? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your

(TCOs F, G) Discuss the problems associated with the use of a
risk-adjusted discount rate in cash flow analysis

You observe that the current three-year discount factor for
default-risk free cash flows is 0.68. Remember, the t-year discount
factor is the present value of $1 paid at time t, i.e. ???? = (1 +
????)−??, where ???? is the t-year spot interest rate (annual
compounding). Assume all bonds have a face value of $100 and that
all securities are default-risk free. All cash flows occur at the
end of the year to which they relate.
