(Points : 0.83)

A major disadvantage of financing with preferred stock is that preferred

stockholders typically have supernormal voting rights.

Preferred stock is normally expected to provide steadier, more reliable income to

investors than the same firm?s common stock, and, as a result, the expected after-tax yield

on the preferred is lower than the after-tax expected return on the common stock

The preemptive right is a provision in all corporate charters that gives preferred

stockholders the right to purchase (on a pro rata basis) new issues of preferred stock.

One of the disadvantages to a corporation of owning preferred stock is that 70% of

the dividends received represent taxable income to the corporate recipient, whereas

interest income earned on bonds would be tax free.

One of the advantages to financing with preferred stock is that 70% of the

dividends paid out are tax deductible to the issuer. Two constant growth stocks are in equilibrium, have the same price, and have the same

required rate of return. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? (Points : 0.83) The two stocks must have the same dividend per share.

If one stock has a higher dividend yield, it must also have a lower dividend growth

rate.

If one stock has a higher dividend yield, it must also have a higher dividend growth

rate.

The two stocks must have the same dividend growth rate.

The two stocks must have the same dividend yield. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? (Points : 0.83)

A change in a company?s target capital structure cannot affect its WACC.

WACC calculations should be based on the before-tax costs of all the individual

capital components.

Flotation costs associated with issuing new common stock normally reduce the

WACC.

If a company?s tax rate increases, then, all else equal, its weighted average cost of

capital will decline.

An increase in the risk-free rate will normally lower the marginal costs of both debt

and equity financing. A company?s perpetual preferred stock currently sells for \$115.00 per share, and it pays an

\$8.00 annual dividend. If the company were to sell a new preferred issue, it would incur a

flotation cost of 5.00% of the issue price. What is the firm's cost of preferred stock? (Points :

The regular payback method recognizes all cash flows over a project?s life.

The discounted payback method recognizes all cash flows over a project?s life, and

it also adjusts these cash flows to account for the time value of money.

The regular payback method was, years ago, widely used, but virtually no

companies even calculate the payback today.

The regular payback is useful as an indicator of a project?s liquidity because it gives

managers an idea of how long it will take to recover the funds invested in a project.

The regular payback does not consider cash flows beyond the payback year, but

the discounted payback overcomes this defect. Assume that you are on the financial staff of Vanderheiden Inc., and you have collected the

following data: The yield on the company?s outstanding bonds is 7.75%, its tax rate is 40%,

the next expected dividend is \$0.65 a share, the dividend is expected to grow at a constant

rate of 6.00% a year, the price of the stock is \$19.00 per share, the flotation cost for selling

new shares is F = 10%, and the target capital structure is 45% debt and 55% common

equity. What is the firm's WACC, assuming it must issue new stock to finance its capital

budget? (Points : 0.83)

WACC. You have obtained the following information. (1) The firm's noncallable bonds mature

in 20 years, have an 8.00% annual coupon, a par value of \$1,000, and a market price of

\$1,075.00. (2) The company?s tax rate is 40%. (3) The risk-free rate is 4.50%, the market

risk premium is 5.50%, and the stock?s beta is 1.20. (4) The target capital structure consists

of 35% debt and the balance is common equity. The firm uses the CAPM to estimate the cost of equity, and it does not expect to issue any new common stock. What is its WACC? (Points :

company versus a contractual obligation for a bond. (Points : 0.83)

True

False When a new issue of stock is brought to market, it is the marginal investor who determines True

False Question 27 of 30The total return on a share of stock refers to the dividend yield less any

commissions paid when the stock is purchased and sold.

(Points : 0.83)

True

False Preferred stock is a hybrid--a sort of cross between a common stock and a bond--in the sense

that it pays dividends that normally increase annually like a stock but its payments are

contractually guaranteed like interest on a bond. (Points : 0.83) True False Question 29 of 30The cost of perpetual preferred stock is found as the preferred's annual

dividend divided by the market price of the preferred stock. No adjustment is needed for

taxes because preferred dividends, unlike interest on debt, are not deductible by the issuing

firm. (Points : 0.83) True False
