  4. FIN 534 Week 1 DQ 2 (Str Course) FIN 534 Courses Discuss ways that the basic concepts we have discussed in this chapter directly impact your life. Provide specific examples to support your response. Question 1 You recently sold 100 shares of your new company, XYZ Corporation, to your brother at a family reunion. At the reunion your brother gave you a check for the stock and you gave your brother the stock certificates. Which of the following statements best describes this transaction? Fin 534 Week 1 Quiz 1 (Str Course)

  5. FIN 534 Week 2 Chapter 3 Solution (Str Course) FIN 534 Courses Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. The ratio of long-term debt to total capital is more likely to experience seasonal fluctuations than is either the DSO or the inventory turnover ratio. b. If two firms have the same ROA, the firm with the most debt can be expected to have the lower ROE. c. An increase in the DSO, other things held constant, could be expected to increase the total assets turnover ratio. 1. A $50,000 loan is to be amortized over 7 years, with annual end-of-year payments. Which of these statements is CORRECT? a. The annual payments would be larger if the interest rate were lower. b. If the loan were amortized over 10 years rather than 7 years, and if the interest rate were the same in either case, the first payment would include more dollars of interest under the 7-year amortization plan.

  6. FIN 534 Courses • FIN 534 Week 3 Chapter 5 Solution (Str Course) Three $1,000 face value bonds that mature in 10 years have the same level of risk, hence their YTMs are equal. Bond A has an 8% annual coupon, Bond B has a 10% annual coupon, and Bond C has a 12% annual coupon. Bond B sells at par. Assuming interest rates remain constant for the next 10 years, which of the following statements is CORRECT? Question 1 Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. Since companies can deduct dividends paid but not interest paid, our tax system favors the use of equity financing over debt financing, and this causes companies’ debt ratios to be lower than they would be if interest and dividends were both deductible.

  7. FIN 534 Courses • FIN 534 Week 4 Chapter 6 Solution (Str Course) Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. If you add enough randomly selected stocks to a portfolio, you can completely eliminate all of the market risk from the portfolio. b. If you were restricted to investing in publicly traded common stocks, yet you wanted to minimize the riskiness of your portfolio as measured by its beta, then according to the CAPM theory you should invest an equal amount of money in each stock in the market. That is, if there were 10,000 traded stocks in the world, the least risky possible portfolio would include some shares of each one. 1. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. The constant growth model takes into consideration the capital gains investors expect to earn on a stock. b. Two firms with the same expected dividend and growth rates must also have the same stock price. c. It is appropriate to use the constant growth model to estimate a stock's value even if its growth rate is never expected to become constant. FIN 534 Week 4 Chapter 7 Solution (Str Course)

  8. FIN 534 Courses • FIN 534 Week 4 Quiz 3 (Str Course) Which of the following statements is CORRECT? 1) A time line is not meaningful unless all cash flows occur annually 2) Time lines are useful for visualizing complex problems prior to doing actual calculations 3) Time lines cannot be constructed to deal with situations where some of the cash flows occur annually but others occur quarterly 4) Time lines can only be constructed for annuities where the payments occur at the ends of the periods, i.e., Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. Put options give investors the right to buy a stock at a certain strike price before a specified date. b. Call options give investors the right to sell a stock at a certain strike price before a specified date. c. Options typically sell for less than their exercise value. d.

The internal rate of return method (IRR) is generally regarded by academics as being the best single method for evaluating capital budgeting projects. b. The payback method is generally regarded by academics as being the best single method for evaluating capital budgeting projects. c. The discounted payback method is generally regarded by academics as being the best single method for evaluating capital budgeting projects. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. An externality is a situation where a project would have an adverse effect on some other part of the firm’s overall operations. If the project would have a favorable effect on other operations, then this is not an externality. b.

If the company’s weighted average cost of capital is 11%, what is the value of its operations? a. $1,714,750 FIN 534 Week 7 Chapter 13 Solution (Str Course)
