4-8) You want to buy a car, and a local bank will lend you $20,000. The loan would be fully amortized
over 5 years (60 months), and the nominal interest rate would be 12%, with interest paid monthly.

$1000 at maturity. Bond 1, has a maturity of 15 years, and Bond S has a maturity of 1 year.

12%? Assume that there is only one more interest payment to be made on Bond S.
b) Why does the longer-term (15 year) bond fluctuate more when interest rates change than does the

6-8) As an equity analyst you are concerned with what will happen to the required return to Universal
Toddle Industries’s stock as market conditions change. Suppose rrf = 5%, rm = 12 % and B UTI = 1.4

does not remain constant. How would these changes affect R uti?

earnings as dividends, and the stock sells for $36.00.
a) Calculate the historical growth rate in earnings. (hint: this is a 5-year growth period).
b) Calculate the next expected dividend per share, D1. (hint: D0 = 0.4($6.50 = $2.60). Assume that the
past growth rate will continue.
c) What is Radon’s cost of equity, rs?
12-2) Refer to problem 12-1. What would be the additional funds needed if the company’s year end
2013 assets had been $7 million? Assume that all other numbers, including sales, are the same as in
Problem 12-1 and that the company is operating at full capacity. Why is the AFN different from the one
you found in Problem 12-1? Is the company’s “capital intensity” ratio the same or different?
