Identify five different types of real options.Explain what an abandonment/shutdown option is, give an example of a project that includes this type of option, and explain what an option value is. Explain what a decision tree is and provide an example of one. Explain what an investment timing option is, and give an example of a project that includes one. Explain what a growth option is, and give an example of a project that includes one. Explain what a flexibility option is, and give an example of a project that includes one. Use the replacement chain and equivalent annual annuity methods to compare projects with unequal lives, and explain when you might use one method over the other. List the steps a firm goes through when establishing its optimal capital budget in practice.Lecture SuggestionsThis chapter covers some important but relatively technical topics. Note too that this chapter is more modular than most, i.e., the major sections are discrete, hence they can be omitted without loss of continuity. Therefore, if you are experiencing a time crunch, you could skip sections or even the entire chapter. What we cover, and the way we cover it, can be seen by scanning the slides and Integrated Case solution for Chapter
