Jill Clark invested $25,000 in the bonds of Industrial Aromatics, Inc. She held them for 13 months, at the end of which she sold them for $26,746. During the period of ownership she received $2,000 interest. Calculate the pretax and after-tax HPR on Jill's investment. Assume that she is in the 31% ordinary tax bracket (federal and state combined) and pays a 15% capital gains rate on dividends and on capital gains for holding periods longer than 12 months.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 4, 2020, 12:21 am ad1c9bdddf
Holding period return is independant of the time period and is calculated as
HPR = (Final Price - Initial Price + Income)/Initial Price
