Question

An investor pays $10,000 today to purchase an investment that
returns

$5,000 at the end of each of years 2, 4, and 5. The returns are
immediately

reinvested at an annual interest rate of 5%. Calculate the annual
effective yield

rate for the investor at the end of the fifth year.

(a) 9.91%

(b) 12.00%

(c) 12.45%

(d) 13.11%

(e) 15.13%

Answer #1

Initial cost of the investment = $10000

investment returns are,

CF2 = $5000

CF4 = $5000

CF5 = $5000

reinvestment rate r = 5%

So, value of the future cash flow at year 5 using compounding is

Future value at year 5 = CF2*(1+r)^3 + CF4*(1+r) + CF5 = 5000*1.05^3 + 5000*1.05 + 5000 = $16038.13

annual effective yield rate for the investor at the end of the fifth year = (FV/initial cost)^(1/5) - 1

annual effective yield rate for the investor at the end of the fifth year = (16038.12/10000)^(1/5) - 1 = 9.91%

Option A is correct.

An investor pays 100,000 today for a 4-year investment that
returns cash flows of 40,000 at the end of each of years 2, 3 and
4. The cash flows can be reinvested at 4% per annum effective.
If the rate of interest at which the investment is to be valued
is 5.0%, what is the net present value of this investment
today?

You can purchase an investment that pays $5,000 at the end of
each year for twenty years. The investment pays a 3% annual
interest rate. How much should you pay for the investment
today?

Given an annual effective rate of interest of 10%, for a 10,000
investment made today; an investor receives 1,000 in one year, X in
two years and $5,000 in three years. Find X

An investment is expected to produce $2,000, $800, $0, $3,000,
$5,000, and $5,000 at the end of first, second, third, fourth,
fifth, and sixth year, respectively. Today, the investment costs
$12,500. Is this investment profitable? What will be the annual
investment yield or rate of return?

An investor borrows an amount at an annual effective interest
rate of 5% and will repay all interest and principal in a lump sum
at the end of 20 years. She uses the amount borrowed to purchase a
10,000 par value 20-year bond with 8% semiannual coupons bought to
yield 6% convertible semiannually. All coupon payments are
reinvested at a nominal rate of 6% convertible semiannually.
Calculate the net gain to the investor at the end of 20 years after...

B. Joan invested $5,000 in an interest-bearing account earning
an 8% annual rate of interest compounded monthly. How much will the
account be worth at the end of 5 years, assuming all interest is

An investment pays 1000 in one year, 2000 at the end of the
second year and 3000 at the end of the third year. An investor has
purchased it to yield an annual effective rate i = 0.08. Calculate
the Macaulay and modified duration.
The answers are Mac D = 2.29, Mod D = 2.12, but I'm not sure how
to get there.

Suppose, you are evaluating an investment which will earn you
$12,500, $10,000, $7,500, $5,000, and $0 at the end of first,
second, third, fourth, and fifth year, respectively. How much
should you pay for this investment if you expect to earn an annual
return of 5% compounded monthly?
