You have finally saved $10,000 and are ready to make your first investment. You have the following three alternatives for investing that money:
???? Â Capital Cities ABC, Inc., bonds, which have a par value of $1,000 and coupon interest rate of 8.75%, are selling for $1,314 and mature in 12 years.
???? Â Southwest Bancorp preferred stock is paying dividend of $2.50 and selling for $25.50.
???? Â Emerson Electric common stock is selling for $36.75. The stock recently paid a $1.32 dividend, and the firmâ€™s earning per share have increased from $1.49 to 3.06 in the
past five years. The firm expects to grow at the same rate for the foreseeable future.
Your required rates of return for these investments are 6% for bonds, 7% for the preferred stock, and 20% for the common stock.
