Question description

Question 1

Use Python to answer this question.

(a) Select a stock and obtain the stock prices for a one-year period. Create a histogram of its daily returns.

(10 marks)

(b) Calculate the daily price volatility of the stock and explain its significance.

(10 marks)

(c) Find the chain of call and put options available on this stock using either Eikon or the internet. Describe what a call option is and explain the information given for each call option.

(10 marks)

Question 2

Use Excel in your calculations. May purchases a house for $2.5 million and makes a down payment of 40% of the purchase price. She borrows the rest from the bank on a 25-year loan, which charges her 1.2% for the first year and 1-year SIBOR + 0.35% thereafter.

The monthly payment of a variable-rate loan is calculated as if it is a fixed-rate loan on the outstanding loan balance and time remaining on the loan, whenever the variable rate is changed.

(a) Compute the monthly payment she has to make in the first year. What is the loan balance remaining at the end of one year?

(8 marks)

(b) Calculate the monthly payment she has to make in the second year assuming the 1-year SIBOR is 1.7%. What is the loan balance remaining at the end of two years? How much was the interest and principal repayment made at the end of two years?

(8 marks)

(c) What is SIBOR? From your understanding of SIBOR, explain if the (mortgage) loan rate can ever be less than SIBOR?

(4 marks)

Question 3

Use Excel in your calculations. The yield on 10 year Singapore Treasury bonds is 3% and the market return is 5%. You are studying UniSUSS stock which has a beta of 1.2. UniSUSS has just paid a dividend of 1.20 and expects dividends to grow at a rate of 4% per annum for the next 5 years, and to slow down to 2% growth per annum thereafter.

(a) Calculate the discount rate you should apply to UniSUSS stock.

(5 marks)

(b) What is the intrinsic value of UniSUSS stock?

(10 marks)

(c) If dividends stop growing after the first 5 years, what is the intrinsic value of UniSUSS stock?

(5 marks)

Question 4

Answer the following questions using Python.

Trunk Company plans to invest in Project A with the following estimated annual cash flows:

Yr 1

$ 20,000

Yr 2

$ 90,000

Yr 3

$ 180,000

Yr 4

$ 220,000

Yr 5

$ 150,000

The project costs $500,000. The required return for this project is 5% compounded quarterly.

Trunk Company looks at another Project B which might potentially be better than Project A. Project B has the following cash flows:

Yr 1

$ 150,000

Yr 2

$ 220,000

Yr 3

$ 180,000

Yr 4

$ 90,000

Yr 5

$ 20,000

This project also costs $500,000. The required return for this project is 5% compounded quarterly, same as Project A.

(a) Compute the IRR of Projects A and B, and propose whether to accept or reject each project, assuming there are unlimited funds. Explain your decision.

(b) Calculate the NPV of each project. Propose whether to accept or reject each project based on NPV, and choose one project, assuming the Company has funds only for one project. Explain your decision.

(10 marks)

(c) Explain why one of the projects is superior although the cash flows are the same except that they are received in different years. What should the cost of the inferior project be in order to make you indifferent to either project?

What is the resulting annual discount rate of the inferior project?
