Ratios are mostly calculated based on the financial statements of a firm. However, another group of ratios, called marketbased ratios, relate to a firm’s observable market value, stock prices, and book values, integrating information from both the market and the firm’s financial statements.
Consider the case of Blue Dog Manufacturing Corp.:
Blue Dog Manufacturing Corp. just reported a net income of $12,000,000, and its current stock price is $23.00 per share. Blue Dog is forecasting an increase of 25% for its net income next year, but it also expects it will have to issue 1,900,000 new shares of stock (raising its shares outstanding from 5,500,000 shares to 7,400,000 shares).
If Blue Dog’s forecast turns out to be correct and its pricetoearnings (P/E) ratio does not change, what does management expect its stock price to be one year from now? (Hint: If you choose to compute the firm’s price/earnings ratio, round its value to four decimal places.)
a) $21.42 per share
b) $23.00 per share
c) $16.07 per share
d) $26.78 per share
.One year later, Blue Dog Manufacturing Corp.’s stock is trading at $39.75, and the company reports its common equity value as $31,701,600. What is Blue Dog Manufacturing Corp.’s markettobook(M/B) ratio? (1.07x/22.27x/13.93x/9.29x) choose one
Can a company’s stock have a negative P/E ratio? yes/no (choose one)

1. A pension fund manager is considering three mutual funds. The
first is a stock fund, the second is a longterm government and
corporate bond fund, and the third is a Tbill money market fund
that yields a sure rate of 5.5%. The probability distributions of
the risky funds are:
Expected Return  Standard Deviation  
Stock fund (S)  15  %  32  % 
Bond fund (B)  9  %  23  % 
The correlation between the fund returns is 0.15.
What is the Sharpe ratio of the best feasible CAL?

A store has 5 years remaining on its lease in a mall. Rent is $1,900 per month, 60 payments remain, and the next payment is due in 1 month. The mall's owner plans to sell the property in a year and wants rent at that time to be high so that the property will appear more valuable. Therefore, the store has been offered a "great deal" (owner's words) on a new 5year lease. The new lease calls for no rent for 9 months, then payments of $2,500 per month for the next 51 months. The lease cannot be broken, and the store's WACC is 12% (or 1% per month).
Should the new lease be accepted?
If the store owner decided to bargain with the mall's owner over the new lease payment, what new lease payment would make the store owner indifferent between the new and old leases? (Hint: Find FV of the old lease's original cost at t = 9; then treat this as the PV of a 51period annuity whose payments represent the rent during months 10 to 60.) Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent.
The store owner is not sure of the 12% WACC—it could be higher or lower. At what nominal WACC would the store owner be indifferent between the two leases? (Hint: Calculate the differences between the two payment streams; then find its IRR.) Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.
