The procedure for doing the calculations have been explained in detail.

1)      What is the holding period return (percentage return on this investment) to an investor who bought 100 shares of Charter Oil nine months ago for \$36 a share, received two \$50 dividend checks, and sold the stock today at \$38 a share?

Number of shares= 100

Purchase price of share= \$36
Amount paid for purchase of shares= \$3,600 =100 x \$36.

Selling price of share= \$38
Amount received for sale of shares= \$3,800 =100 x \$38.
Dividends received= (two \$50 dividend checks)= \$100 =2 x \$ 50
Total amount received= \$3,900 =\$3,800. + \$100.

Profit= \$300 =\$3,900. - \$3,600.

Holding period return = Profit / Purchase Amount= 8.33% =\$300./ \$3,600.

Answer: holding period return (percentage return on investment)= 8.33%

2)      What is the market price of a share of stock for a firm that pays dividends of \$1.20 per share, has a P/E of 14, and a dividend payout ratio of 0.4?

dividends per share = \$1.20
dividend payout ratio = dividend per share / earnings per share= 0.4
Therefore, earnings per share = dividend per share / dividend payout ratio = \$3.00 =\$1.2 / 0.4

P/E= price per share / earnings per share= 14
Therefore, price per share = P/E x earnings per share= \$42.00 =14 x \$3.

Answer: market price of a share of stock= \$42.00

3)      A firm's current ratio is 1.5, and its quick ratio is 1.0. If its current liabilities are \$10,000, what are its inventories?

Current Ratio= Current Assets / Current Liabilities= 1.5
Current Liabilities= \$10,000
Therefore, Current Assets= Current Ratio x Current Liabilities= \$15,000 =1.5 x ...
