Question

1. As of late April the US risk-free rate is approximately 1%. Assume for the moment that market risk is 7% due to the pandemic. Answer the following questions:

- What is the required return for the company you used for the financial analysis project? Show your calculations.
- The risk-free rate and market risk above define a Security Market Line (SML). If the risk-free rate were to rise to 1.5% next month, how would that change the SML? Explain your answer.
- Assume instead of the change in B that the market risk declined to a more normal 5% by September. How would that change the SML defined by the original conditions? Explain your answer.

2. ABC Corp was created from the combination of two smaller companies two years ago. Selected information is as follows, in millions except percentages:

FCF current year: $215

WACC: 8.5%

Constant growth rate: 3%

Short-term investments: $18

Debt: $47

Preferred stock: $10

Number of common stock shares: 12

- Show calculations for ABC’s value of operations.
- Show calculations for ABC’s estimated intrinsic stock price.
- Which would have the larger effect on your answer in B, a $10 increase in FCF or a 1% decrease in WACC? Show calculations.

Answer #1

2.) answer:

a)Formula to find the firm's value

whre FCFF1 = FCFF0(1+g)

Firm Value = $215 (1+0.03)/ 0.085-0.03 = 4026.364

b) intrinsic value of stock price = Firm Value/no. of shares

4026.364/12 = 335.5303 approx.

c) when $10 is increased in FCF

Inrinsic value of stock price = Firm value / shares =

[225(1+0.03)] /[ 0.055 * 12] = 351.1364

When Wacc is reduced by 1%

Value of stock (formula is same) = [215*1.03]/[12*0.045] = 410.0926

note: 0.045 = 0.075-0.03

we can clearly see that value of the stock is most affected by change in WACC

1. Assume risk-free rate is 3% and the market risk premium is
6%. If the overall market’s risk aversion increased so that the
market risk premium increased to 7%, what will be the change to
SML? Draw the original SML and the new SML in the same graph (not
in two separate graphs) to show the change. If stock A’s beta is
1.2, what will be its required return before and after the change?
Please show all the work needed...

Assume risk-free rate is 4% and the market risk premium is 5%.
If the overall market’s risk aversion increased so that the market
risk premium increased to 8%, what will be the change to SML? Draw
the original SML and the new SML in the same graph (not in two
separate graphs) to show the change. If stock A’s beta is 1.6, what
will be its required return before and after the change?

Given the following data: market rate = 12%, risk-free rate= 3%,
beta of Stock A = 2, beta of stock B= 0.5.
Part 1: Draw the SML and mark the dots for stock A and stock B
on the graph. Hint: note that we only need the risk-free rate and
the market rate to draw the SML. SML is the graph that depicts what
required rates (appropriate rates) should be based on CAPM.
Part 2: Assume that the actual return...

3. Stock XYZ has a beta of 2.0. The risk-free rate is 1%. The
market is expected to return 10% a year before the pandemic hits.
The stock is expected to pay a dividend of $1 a year, every year,
forever. The pandemic hits. Investors now expect the market to
return only 8% a year. The risk-free rate is lowered to 0%, and now
the stock is expected to pay a dividend of $0.50 a year, every
year, forever. What...

Assume the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the expected
return on the market is 12%. If you are evaluating a project with a
beta of 1.3 and an IRR of 17%, and you draw the security market
line (SML) to guide your decision, which of the following
statements is true?
a.
The vertical intercept of the SML will be 7%.
b.
The project’s IRR of 17% falls on the SML.
c.
The project’s IRR of 17% falls below...

Assume that the risk-free rate is 4.5% and the market risk
premium is 6%.
What is the expected return for the overall stock market? Round
your answer to two decima
What is the required rate of return on a stock with a beta of
2.2? Round your answer to two decimal places.

Assume that the risk-free rate, Upper R Subscript Upper F, is
currently 9%, the market return, r Subscript m, is 13 %, and
asset A has a beta, b Subscript Upper A, of 1.39. a. Use CAPM to
estimate the required return, r Subscript Upper A, on asset A.
Which of the following graphs represents the security market line
(SML) and the required return for asset A?
b. Assume that as a result of recent economic events,
inflationary expectations have...

Currently, the risk-free interest rate (RF) is 3% and
the required market return (rm) is 10%. You consider to
buy a stock with a beta (β) of 1.5 and you expect to earn 11%
annual rate of return from this stock.
(1) Use the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) to find the
required return on this stock
(2) Base on your answer from part (1), would you buy this stock?
Why or why not?
(3) Draw the Security Market Line...

Assume that the risk-free rate remains constant, but the market
risk premium declines. Which of the following is most likely to
occur?
The required return on a stock with beta = 1.0 will not
change.
The required return on a stock with beta > 1.0 will
increase.
The return on "the market" will remain constant.
The return on "the market" will increase.
The required return on a stock with beta < 1.0 will decline.
