Homework 7-3

1.      After reading this chapter, it isn’t surprising that you’re becoming an investment wizard. With your newfound expertise you purchase 100 shares of KSU Corporation for $31.2931.29 per share. Over the next 12 months assume the price goes up to $ 39.49 per share, and you receive a qualified dividend of $0.650.65 per share. What would be your total return on your KSU Corporation investment? Assuming you continue to hold the stock, calculate your after-tax return. How is your realized after-tax return different if you sell the stock? In both cases assume you are in the 25 percent federal marginal tax bracket and 15 percent long-term capital gains and qualified dividends tax bracket and there is no state income tax on investment income.

2.      2.  Last year you sold short 400 shares of stock selling at $85.3485.34 per share. Six months later the stock had fallen to $46.9146.91 per share. Over the six-month period the company paid out two dividends of $2.032.03 per share. Your total commission cost for selling and buying the shares came to $9797. Determine your profit or loss from these transactions.

3.     3. An investor is considering purchasing one of the following three stocks. Stock X has a market capitalization of $99 billion, pays a relatively high dividend with little increase in earnings, and has a P/E ratio of 1010. Stock Y has a market capitalization of $6363 billion but does not currently pay a dividend. Stock Y has a P/E ratio of 3838. Stock Z, a housing industry company, has a market capitalization of $806806 million and a P/E of 1717.
