Question

Assume that an industrial building can be purchased for $1,700,000 today, is expected to yield cash flows of $125,000 for each of the next five years (with the cash flows occurring at the end of each year), and can be sold at the end of the fifth year for $1,625,000. Calculate the internal rate of return (IRR) for this transaction.

A) 3.14%

B) 6.58

C) 9.20%

D) 10.37%

19) For Question #18, assume you don’t know what the purchase price is. What price would you want to pay in order to obtain a return of 8%

A) Can’t determine from these facts

B) $1,712,000

C) $1,855,678

D) $1,605,036

Answer #1

a.Let irr be x%

At irr,present value of inflows=present value of outflows.

1,700,000=125,000/1.0x+125,000/1.0x^2+125,000/1.0x^3+125,000/1.0x^4+125,000/1.0x^5+1,625,000/1.0x^5

Hence x=**irr=6.58%(Approx).**

b.We need to calculate the present value of inflows at the rate of 8%;ie:

Present value of inflows=cash inflow*Present value of discounting factor(rate%,time period)

=125,000/1.08+125,000/1.08^2+125,000/1.08^3+125,000/1.08^4+125,000/1.08^5+1,625,000/1.08^5

**=$1605036(Approx)**

Question 8: uppose a certain property is expected to produce net
operating cash flows annually as follows, at the end of each of the
next five years: $35,000, $37,000, $45,000, $46,000, and
$40,000. In addition, at the end of the fifth year we
will assume the property will be (or could be) sold for $400,000,
what is the highest price you would be willing to pay for this
property? (ie. at what price does the net present value equal zero?
ie....

The value of a share of common stock depends on the cash flows
it is expected to provide, and those flows consist of the dividends
the investor receives each year while holding the stock and the
price the investor receives when the stock is sold. The final price
includes the original price paid plus an expected capital gain. The
actions of the marginal investor determine the equilibrium stock
price. Market equilibrium occurs when the stock's price is
