Investment A is expected to produce annual cash flows forever. The next cash flow is expected to be 79.59 dollars in 1 year, and subsequent annual cash flows are expected to increase by 3.64 percent each year forever. What is the expected return for investment A? Answer as a rate in decimal format so that 12.34% would be entered as .1234 and 0.98% would be entered as .0098.

Market Value of bond is calculated in excel and screen shot provided below:

Market Value of bond is \$1,148.58.

Total Value of holdings = \$1,891.

Value of Investment 1 = \$1,891 - \$1,148.58

= \$742.42.

Value of Investment 1 is \$742.42.

Annual Cash flow from investment 1 = \$79.59.

Rate of return on investment 1 = (\$79.59 / \$742.42) + 3.64%

= 10.72% + 3.64%

= 14.36%

Rate of return on investment 1 is 14.36%.
