The Bartram-Pulley Company (BPC) must decide between two mutually exclusive
investment Projects. Each project costs $6,750 and has an expected life of 3 years. Annual net cash flows from each project begin 1 year after the initial investment is made and have the following probability distribution:

Project A Project B
____________________________________________________________________

Probability Net Cash Flow Probabilty Net Cash Flow
____________________________________________________________________

BPC has decided to evaluate the riskier project at a 12% rate and theless risky project at a 10% rate.

a. What is the expected value for the annual net cash flows from each project? What is the coefficient of variation?

b. What is the risk-adjusted NPV of each project?

c. If it were known that Project B was negatively correlated with other cash flows of the firm whereas Project A was positively correlated, how would this knowledge affect the decision? If Project B's cash flows were negatively correlated with gross domestic product would that influence your assessment of its risk?

Solution Summary

Risk-adjusted NPV of two mutually exclusive Projects are calculated

Hello, I want to know how to calculate the risk-adjustedNPV, i dont know what the formula is or how to find it.
I attached a table in my hw, not sure if this is the one which i need to use to find the risk npv.

Erica's Farm is faced with two mutually exclusive projects. The following is data on the two projects.
Project C K

The Hokie Corporation is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Both require an initial outlay of $10,000 and will operate for 5 years. Project A will produce expected cash flows of $5,000 per year for years 1 through 5, whereas project B will produce expected cash flows of $6,000 per year for years 1 through 5. Because pr

Suppose a firm estimates its WACC to be 10 percent. Should the WACC be used to evaluate all of its potential projects, even if they vary in risk? If not, what might be "reasonable" costs of capital for average-, high-, and low-risk projects?

A firm uses a single discount rate to compute the NPV of all its potential capital budgeting projects, even though the projects have a wide range of nondiversifiable risk. The firm then undertakes all those projects that appear to have positive NPV's. Briefly explain why such a firm would tend to become riskier over time.

Project J has the same internal rate of return as Project K. Which of the following statements is most correct?
A) If the projects have the same size (scale) they will have the same NPV, even if the two projects have different levels of risk.
B) If the two projects have the same risk they will have the same NPV, even if the tw

A business is considering an investment in one of two mutually exclusive projects. The discount rate used for Project A is 12%. Futher, Project A cost 15K and it would be depreciated using MACRS. It is expected to have an after-tax salvage value of 5K at the end of 6 years and to produce after-tax cash flows (including a depr

Real Time Systems Inc. is considering the development of one of two mutually exclusive new computer models. Each will require a net investment of $5000. the cash flow figures for each project are shown below:
Period Project A Project B

Your company has asked you to analyze two mutually exclusive projects for the coming year. Project A will have an initial outlay of $7,200. Project B will cost $6,800. Both projects will last for three years.
On the basis of the information regarding the risk involved in the two projects, you came up with the following probab
