    Suppose that a foreign project has a beta of 1.12, the risk free return is 9.3% and the required return on the market is estimated at 18%. Then the cost of capital for the project is
    A) 17.21%
    B) 21.37%
    C) 19.04%
    D) 20.03%

    Answer: C

    Cost of capital = risk free rate + beta(required return on the market - risk free rate)
    = 9.3% + 1.12(18% - 9.3%) = 19.04%

    Suppose that the current 90 day London interbank offer rate is 11% (all rates ...
