Question

An investment opportunity has an initial cost of $1000 today. In the next year, you will get $1050. The discount rate is 10%. What is the net present value of that investment opportunity?

Now, if the discount rate is 5%, what is the net present value of that investment opportunity?

Now, if the discount rate is 4%, what is the net present value of that investment opportunity?

Answer #1

**Net present value (NPV)** is a method used to
determine the current value of all future cash flows generated by a
project, including the initial capital investment. It is widely
used in capital budgeting to establish which projects are likely to
turn the greatest profit.

The formula for NPV varies depending on the number and consistency of future cash flows. If there’s one cash flow from a project that will be paid one year from now, the calculation for the net present value is as follows.

**NPV={Cash flow/(1+i)t} − initial
investment**

where:i=Required return or discount rate

t=Number of time periods

a) discount rate 10%

(1050/1.10) - 1000 = -45.45

b) discount rate 5%

1050/1.05-1000 = 0

C) discount rate 4%

(1050/1.04) - 1000 = 9.615

Suppose that an investment opportunity has a cost today of
$100,000. You will receive a payment of $30,000 one year from
today. You will receive a payment of $60,000 two years from today.
You will receive a payment of $50,000 three years from today.
Finally, you will have to pay $10,000 to dispose of the asset four
years from today. What is the net present value of the costs and
benefits if the interest rate is 10%?

You are offered a four-year investment opportunity costing
$100,000 today. The investment will pay $25,000 in the first year,
$27,000 in the second year, $30,000 in the third year, and $40,000
in the fourth year. Investments of comparable risk require a 10%
rate of return in the financial market. Should you accept the
investment opportunity and why?
A.
Yes, those cash payments look good to me because they add up to
$122,000.
B.
Yes, because the investment’s cash payments represent...

Investment opportunity involves an initial cost of $2.33
million, annual earnings of $300,000, and a salvage value of $1.25
million at the end of 20 years. This option would also involve
one-time maintenance costs of $200,000 in year 10 and $150,000 in
year 15. If the assumed annual interest rate is 6%, what is the net
present value of the investment?

Seattle Corporation identifies an investment opportunity that
will yield end of year cash flows of $30,000 in both Year 1 and
Year 2, $35,000 in both Year 3 and Year 4, and $40,000 in Year 5.
The investment will cost the firm $85,000 today, and the firm's
required rate of return is 10 percent. What is the net present
value (NPV) for this investment?

You are
considering a 10-year project:
An initial investment (today) in equipment of
$900,000 is required. There will be no salvage value for this
equipment after 10 years.
The equipment is depreciated using the
straight-line method, $90,000/year for 10 years.
Annual expected revenues are $700,000/year for 10
years (beginning 1 year from today). Annual expected
operating expenses are $250,000/year for 10 years
(beginning 1 year from today). This $250,000 does not include
depreciation.
The tax rate is 35%.
An investment...

A firm is considering an investment opportunity today. The
initial cash flow (year 0) will be an investment of $50 million.
The project is expected to generate a project cash flow of $5
million for year 1, and the firm expects project cash flows to
increase by 4% per year over the life of the project. The project
will run for 20 years, and the firm has a cost of capital of 11%.
What is the NPV of this proposed...

You are considering an investment opportunity that requires an
investment of $1,000,000 today and will provide $600,000 one year
from now, $400,000 two years from now, and $500,000 three years
from now. If the appropriate interest rate is 10%, then the NPV of
this opportunity is closest to: ($38,000) $118,630 $251,690
$318,980

You have been offered a unique investment opportunity. If you
invest $ 10 800 today, you will receive $ 540 one year from now,

What is the NPV of the opportunity if the cost of capital is 5.9 %
per year? Should you take the opportunity? b. What is the NPV of
the opportunity if the cost of capital is 1.9 % per year?...

An investment will provide you with $100 at the end of each year
for the next 10 years. What is the present value of that annuity if
the discount rate is 8% annually? What is the present value of the
above if the payments are received at the beginning of each year?
If you deposit those payments into an account earning 8%, what will
the future value be in 10 years? What will the future value be if
you open...

Suppose you have an investment opportunity that costs
you $130,000 today and will yield payoffs of $50,000 at the end of
the 2nd year, 3rd year, and 4th year. Will you invest your $130,000
on this investment opportunity today if the interest rate is 10%?
