Q:
A:
You
expect to sell your only stock in 2 years time at a
price of $42.50, just after it pays a dividend of $1.75.
(Assume no other dividends were paid during this time).
This stock is currently worth $34.80. What would the
minimum APR (or stated annual interest rate) have to
be on a mortgage backed security so that you would
rather hold the MBS as opposed to the stock?
a) 12.38%
b) 12.76%
c) 1.00%
d) 12.07%
a) 12.38%
b) 12.76%
c) 1.00%
d) 12.07%
The correct answer is: d)
Step 1: Find the equivalent monthly return from the stock investment
FV = (42.50 + 1.75) = 44.25
n = 24
i = ? = 1.006
PV = 34.80
Step 2: Compute the APR
APR = 1.006 x 12 = 12.07
Therefore, the APR on the MBS must be at least equal to 12.07%
