A company is considering investing in a project. The present
value (PV) of future discounted expected cash flows is either 7000
if the market goes up or 3000 if the market goes down next year.
The probability the market will go up is 35%. The initial capital
investment required at time 0 is 4000. Suppose the company has some
flexibility in managing this project. If, however, the market
should go up, the company could expand operations. With expansion
the PV...
