Question

Finance Question 14. MZG is considering a project that pays CFs of $3million a year for three years. These cash flows have been adjusted for risks. Given an expected market return of 13%, market risk premium of 9%, and a beta of 1.2, what is the NPV of the project? A. $6.87 million B. $8.32 million C. $6.35 million D. None of the above Answer: B. use risk-free of 4% as discount rate. CFs are certainty equivalent. Using CAPM formula Return = rf + beta ( market premium) 13% = rf + 1.2(9%) rf = 2.2% Why the answer using 4% as the risk free rate? Is thrisk-freeree rate = discount rate?

Answer #1

MZG is considering the project that pays CFs of 3 million a year for 3 years.

These cashflows has been adjusted for risk and the expected market return is 13% with a market risk premium of 9%

Risk free discount rate = 13 - 9 = 4% since we need to deduct the market risk premium from the expected return

Beta comes into play when there is volatility of return and since the cash flows are already adjusted for risk we need not consider beta again.

The NPV of the project = 3/[(1+.04)^1] + 3/[(1+.04)^2] + 3/[(1+.04)^3}

= 2.884 + 2.773 + 2.666 = 8.323

Hence the NPV of the project is 8.323 million $

Suppose the company is facing
a fast growth of 22% per year for the next 4 years. After that the
growth becomes constant 0%.
Company's beta is 1.2; market risk premium is 5.5%
and risk-free rate is 3%.
Last dividend (Do) is $1.25 per share.
Find:

The financial manager of HW is considering a project. It
will produce just one cash flow in year 1, but with some
uncertainty. It has 10% of chance to generate $8 million in year 1,
70% of chance to generate $3 million, and 20% to generate $0. The
project requires $3million investment today. The project has the
average risk level of the company. You also have some information
on the company. HW’s cost of debt is 4.5%. Beta of debt...

if the risk of an investment project has a beta of 1:
a- projects initial cost should be increased/ decreased to
account for the increase/ decrease in risk.
b- projects discount rate must not be adjusted based on the
risks of the projects cash flows.
c- projects discount rate must be adjusted based on the sources
of project financing.
d- average rate used for all prior projects should be used as
the new projects discount rate.
e- market rate of...

Hello, the stock I was assigned is NRG. I need
to answer the following question:
Estimate discount rate using CAPM (Please provide details on your
estimation. You need to estimate risk free rate and market risk
premium. A reasonable risk free rate should be between 2%-3% and
reasonable risk premium should be between 5%-9%).
Can you help me out?

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.

ALiBaba industries is considering to start new project! The
Project either start today or exactly in two years. The project
will cost £10.8 million to start today. The cost of starting
project in two years is £12 million. You expect the project to
generate £1,250,000 in free cash flow per year forever. The risk
free rate is 4.5%. The expected return on the market is 9%, and
beta for projects of similar risk is 1.5. The variance of the

A project has a forecasted cash flow of $126 in year 1 and $137
in year 2. The interest rate is 5%, the estimated risk premium on
the market is 11.5%, and the project has a beta of 0.66. If you use
a constant risk-adjusted discount rate, answer the following:

round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal
places.)
b. What is the certainty-equivalent cash flow
in year 1...

The beta for Wal-Mart stock is 0.75, Suppose that the risk-free

Risk-adjusted rates of return using CAPM Centennial
Catering, Inc., is considering two mutually exclusive investments.
The company wishes to use a CAPM-type risk-adjusted discount rate
(RADR) in its analysis. Centennial's managers believe that the
appropriate market rate of return is 12.1 %, and they observe that
the current risk-free rate of return is 6.5 %. Cash flows
associated with the two projects are shown in the following
table. (Click on the icon located on the top-right corner of the
