You are considering an investment in the common stock of Crisp’s
Cookware. The stock is expected to pay a dividend of $1.00 a share
at the end of the year (D1=1.00). The stock has a beta of 0.9. The
riskfree rate is 4.5%, and the market expected return is 10.5%.
The stock’s dividend is expected to grow at some constant rate g.
The stock currently sells for $27 a share. Assuming the market is
in equilibrium, what does the market believe will be the stock
price at the end of 5 years?
First, calculate r
using CAPM: r=rf+ß*(rmrf)r=rf+ß*(rmrf)
 Second, calculate g using the following
equation:r=D1P0+gr=D1P0+g  Third, calculate future stock price using the
equation: Pt=P0*(1+g)t

You are considering an investment with the following cash flows. If the required rate of return for this investment is 10 percent, should you accept it based solely on the internal rate of return rule? Why or why not?
Year Cash Flow
0 $12,000
1 $ 6,500
2 $ 9,000
3 $ 1,500
Group of answer choices
no; because the IRR is less than the required return
no; because the IRR is a negative rate of return
yes; because the IRR is a positive rate of return
You can not apply the IRR rule in this case because there may be multiple IRRs.
yes; because the IRR exceeds the required return
