a. Find the future value of both annuities at the end of year 10, assuming that Kym can earn (1) 10% annual interest and (2) 20% annual interest.
Annuity C Annuity D
FVAi%n= PMT x (FVIFAi%n) FVAdue= PMT x [FVIFAi%n x (1+i)]
(1) (1)

(2) (2)

b. Use your finding in part a to indicate which annuity has the greater future value at the end of year 10 for both (1) and (2)
(1) 10% interest rates
(2) 20% interest rates

c. Find the present value of both annuities, assuming that Kym can earn (1) 10%annual interest and (2) 20% annual interest.
Annuity C Annuity D
FVAi%n= PMT x (FVIFAi%n) FVAdue= PMT x [FVIFAi%n x (1+i)]
(1) (1)

(2) (2)

d. Use your finding in part c to indicate which annuity has the greater present value for both (1) 10% and (2) 20% interest rates
(1) 10% interest rates

(2) 20% interest rates

e. Briefly compare, contrast, and explain any differences between your findings using 10% and 20% interest rates in parts b and d

Part A. Why is it that for a given firm, the required rate of return on equity is always greater then the required rate of return on its debt?

Part B. Henderson has common stock outstanding that has a market price of $48 per share. Last year's dividend was $2.25 and is expected to grow at a rate of 4% per year, forever. The expected risk-free rate of interest is 2%, and the expected market premium is 5.5%. The company's beta is 1.2.

a. What is the cost of equity for Henderson using the dividend valuation model?
b. What is the cost of equity for Henderson using the capital asset pricing model (CAPM?

Part C. Henderson is expecting to issue new debt at par with a coupon rate of 6%, and to issue new preferred stock with a $2.00 per share dividend at $20 a share. Common stock is currently selling for $25 a share. Henderson expects to pay a dividend of $2.50 per share next year, and market analysis indicates dividends will grow at a rate of 3% per year. The marginal tax rate is 40%

a. If Henderson raises capital using a capital structure of 40% debt, 10% preferred stock and 50% common stock, what is the cost of capital for Henderson?
