Answer:

(a)

Calculate the number of shares that can be purchased, if $5,000 is spent on a stock that costs $60 per share.

Substitute $5,000 for Total spent and $60 for Cost per share.

83 shares of the stock can be purchased. Calculate the profit.

Substitute 83 for Number of shares, $90 for Sell price and $60 for Buy price.

(b)

Calculate the number of shares that can be purchased if $5,000 is spent on a stock that costs $20 per share.

Substitute $5,000 for Total spent and $20 for Cost per share.

Since there is a 50 percent margin, the other 250 shares can be borrowed.

500 shares of the stock can be purchased (or borrowed). Calculate the profit.

Substitute 500 for number of shares, $30 for Sell price and $20 for Buy price.

(c)

Calculate the number of shares that can be purchased if $5,000 is spent on a stock that costs $40 per share.

Substitute $5,000 for Total spent and $40 for Cost per share.

Since there is a 75 percent margin, the investor must supply at least 75 percent of the stock. The other 25 percent may be borrowed. In other words, 75% of the total number of shares that can be traded is 125.

166 shares of the stock can be purchased (or borrowed). Calculate the profit.

Substitute 166 for number of shares, $55 for Sell price and $40 for Buy price.

Profit from Option (a) is $2,490

Profit from Option (b) is $5,000

Profit from Option (c) is $2,490

Conclusion: Based on the above calculations and compare the profit from each option, Option (b) has got the highest returns on investment. Then select Option (b).

The CEO of The CC Company, M K, acknowledged that the company's 2013 volume and revenue results did not meet expectations.

The company has plans to accelerate growth, expand their profitable portfolio, maximize productivity, win at the point of sale and invest in the next generation of leaders.

Based on my findings, it can be suggestible for the company for an future investment. Its EPS Growth and Return on Equity look good. Although sales were slow in 2013, there are plans to grow.

On the downside, it's possible sugary drinks will soon be a thing of the past as consumers see it as a cause of obesity.

(b)

Use the worksheet shown below, and the Table of Future Value Annuity Factors to determine the amount as shown below.

Person L will need to put away $4,372.16 annually for eight years to get $50,000.

(c)

The money has to be put into an investment program in order to obtain 10% return on her money. For example, she could put her money into a mutual fund that has a history of earning 10% a year.
