  2. benefit-cost ratio.
  3. IRR.
  4. NPV.
Question 2 (1 point)
The discount rate that equates present value of cash inflows and outflows is called the:

  2. weighted average cost of capital.
  3. after-tax weighted average cost of capital.
  4. IRR.
Question 3 (1 point)

  2. will decrease the value of the firm.
  3. have no impact on the value of the firm.

  1. IRR > ROE.
  2. ROE < IRR.
  3. ROE = IRR.
  4. none of these.
Question 5 (1 point)
The change in net cash flows due to an investment project is called:
  1. marginal profit.
  2. marginal revenue.
  3. incremental cash flow.
  4. marginal cash flow.
Question 6 (1 point)
An estimate of the firm's cost of equity capital is:

  2. the market return on common stocks multiplied by beta, the firm's risk index.
  3. expected dividend yield plus projected growth.
  4. expected dividend yield.
Question 7 (1 point)

  2. marginal cost of capital.
  3. optimal capital budget.
  4. optimal capital structure.
Question 8 (1 point)
Examples of mandatory nonrevenue-producing investments are provided by:
  1. cost reduction projects.
  2. expansion projects.
  3. replacement projects.
  4. safety and environmental projects.
Question 9 (1 point)
Net present value is the:
  1. current-dollar difference between marginal revenues and marginal costs.
  2. change in net cash flows due to an investment project.
  3. change in before-tax cash flows due to an investment project.
  4. change in net after-tax cash flows due to an investment project.
Question 10 (1 point)
When net present value is positive:
  1. the internal rate of return equals the cost of capital.
  2. the internal rate of return exceeds the cost of capital.
  3. the internal rate of return is less than the cost of capital.
  4. the internal rate of return equals zero.
Question 11 (1 point)
The most difficult step in capital expenditure analysis is estimating:
  1. the internal rate of return.
  2. the cost of capital.
  3. the cost of investment.
  4. project cash flows.
Question 12 (1 point)
Cash flows include depreciation:
  1. to account for taxes effects.
  2. as a cash expense.
  3. if accelerated depreciation is chosen.
  4. to reduce projected cash flows.
Question 13 (1 point)
Firms should finance a project if its:
  1. expected cash flow is positive.
  2. net cash flow is positive.
  3. internal rate of return is positive.
  4. net present value is positive.
Question 14 (1 point)

  1. the firm is a risk seeker.
  2. the firm is risk averse.
  3. the firm has substantial investment resources.
  4. the firm has limited investment resources.

  4. 37%.
Question 16 (1 point)

  2. component cost of equity.
  3. both A and B.
  4. discount rate.
Question 20 (1 point)
