THE FOLLOWING DATA APPLY TO THE NEXT THREE PROBLEMS Johnny and Ronny have both been given $50,000 by their grandparents today on their 21st birthdays. They want to save for their future and have aspirations of one day being millionaires. Both boys plan to make annual contributions on their birthday, beginning next year. Johnny and Ronny have each opened investment accounts at Chase and Wells Fargo, respectively, and they expect to earn nominal returns of 8% and 9% respectively. Johnny has already decided to deposit $8,000 each year into his investment account, while Ronny is unsure of the amount he will deposit annually.

How many years will it take Johnny before he reaches his investment goal of $1 million?

If Ronny decides to make the same annual contributions as Tommy, how much sooner (in years) would he reach the investment goal?

Suppose Ronny was interested in reaching the investment goal at the same time as Johnny. What is the minimum monthly contribution he could make to reach $1 million at the same time as Johnny?

New-Project Analysis

The president of your company, MorChuck Enterprises, has asked you to evaluate the proposed acquisition of a new chromatograph for the firm's R&D department. The equipment's basic price is $64,000, and it would cost another $19,500 to modify it for special use by your firm. The chromatograph, which falls into the MACRS 3-year class, would be sold after 3 years for $27,500. The MACRS rates for the first three years are 0.3333, 0.4445 and 0.1481. (Ignore the half-year convention for the straight-line method.) Use of the equipment would require an increase in net working capital (spare parts inventory) of $3,000. The machine would have no effect on revenues, but it is expected to save the firm $22,840 per year in before-tax operating costs, mainly labor. The firm's marginal federal-plus-state tax rate is 25%. Cash outflows and negative NPV value, if any, should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answers to the nearest dollar.

  1. What is the Year-0 net cash flow?

  2. What are the net operating cash flows in Years 1, 2, and 3? (Note: Do not include recovery of NWC or salvage value in Year 3's calculation here.)
