A project to build a toll road will take **3** years to complete, costing three payments of $**50** million, paid at the start of each year (at times 0, 1, and 2).

After completion, the toll road will yield a constant $**10** million at the end of each year forever with no costs. So the first payment will be at t=**4**.

The required return of the project is 10% pa given as an effective nominal rate. All cash flows are nominal.

What is the **payback period**?

A share was bought for $30 (at t=0) and paid its annual dividend of $6 one year later (at t=1).

Just after the dividend was paid, the share price fell to $27 (at t=1). What were the total, capital and income returns given as effective annual rates?

The choices are given in the same order:

##r_\text{total}## , ##r_\text{capital}## , ##r_\text{dividend}##.

A stock is expected to pay the following dividends:

Cash Flows of a Stock | ||||||

Time (yrs) | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | ... |

Dividend ($) | 2 | 2 | 2 | 10 | 3 | ... |

After year 4, the dividend will grow in perpetuity at 4% pa. The required return on the stock is 10% pa. Both the growth rate and required return are given as effective annual rates.

What will be the price of the stock in 5 years (t = 5), just after the dividend at that time has been paid?
