The following table, LOADING..., contains annual returns for the stocks of Company Upper A (Upper A) and Company Upper B (Upper B). The returns are calculated using end-of-year prices (adjusted for dividends and stock splits) retrieved from http://www.finance.yahoo.com/. Use the information to create an Excel spreadsheet that calculates the standard deviation of annual returns over the 10-year period for Upper A, Upper B, and of the equally-weighted portfolio of Upper A and Upper B over the 10-year period. (Hint: Review the Excel screenshot on page 173.)

Blooper Industries must replace its magnoosium purification system. Quick & Dirty Systems sells a relatively cheap purification system for $12 million. The system will last 6 years. Do-It-Right sells a sturdier but more expensive system for $20 million; it will last for 8 years. Both systems entail $1 million in operating costs; both will be depreciated straight-line to a final value of zero over their useful lives; neither will have any salvage value at the end of its life. The firm’s tax rate is 30%, and the discount rate is 13%. Either machine will be replaced at the end of its life.

a. What is the equivalent annual cost of investing in the cheap system? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answers as a positive value. Enter your answers in whole dollars, not in millions.)

Is this yield affected by whether the bond is likely to be called?- If the bond is called, the current yield will remain the same but the capital gains yield will be different.
- If the bond is called, the current yield and the capital gains yield will remain the same.
- If the bond is called, the capital gains yield will remain the same but the current yield will be different.

Please, this is the fifth time I am posting this question, all the answers I am getting are inaccurate because the experts are not putting all value into account like the loan interest rate, tax rate, depreciation, annual cash outflows, salvage value, annual cash inflows, and discount rate.

please also support the answer with a full interpretation and the step by step approach in solving the answer. thank you:)

In this paper, please discuss the following case study. In doing so, explain your approach to the problem, support your approach with references, and execute your approach. Provide an answer to the case study’s question with a recommendation.

This case continues following the new project of the WePPROMOTE Company, that you and your partner own. WePROMOTE is in the promotional materials business. The project being considered is to manufacture a very unique case for smart phones. The case is very durable, attractive and fits virtually all models of smart phone. It will also have the logo of your client, a prominent, local company and is planned to be given away at public relations events by your client.

As we know from prior cases involving this company, more and more details of the project become apparent and with more precision and certainty.

The following are the final values to the data that you have been estimating up to this point:

- You can borrow funds from your bank at 3%.
- The cost to install the needed equipment will be $105,000 and this cost is incurred prior to any cash is received by the project.
- The gross revenues from the project will be $25,000 for year 1, then $27,000 for years 2 and 3. Year 4 will be $28,000 and year 5 (the last year of the project) will be $23,000.
- The expected annual cash outflows (current project costs) are estimated at being $13,000 for the first year, then $12,000 for years 2, 3, and 4. The final year costs will be $10,000.
- Your tax rate is 30% and you plan to depreciate the equipment on a straight-line basis for the life of the equipment.
- After 5 years the equipment will stop working and will have a residual (salvage) value of $5,000).
- The discount rate you are assuming is now 7%.

**Requirements of the paper:**

- Perform the final NPV calculations and provide a narrative of how you calculated the computations and why.
- Then provide a summary conclusion on whether you should continue to pursue this business opportunity.
- Research, using at least three sources other than the textbook materials that support your calculations and conclusions.

Papers will be assessed on the following criteria:

- Provide the final, accurate NPV calculations.
- A narrative on how the NPVs were calculated. The narrative should include how the data relating to depreciation and its tax consequences affect the cash flow of the project.
- Supporting narrative based on research of sources other than the textbook materials.
- Provide a conclusion on whether this business opportunity should be pursued.
