2.               Explain all types of limit buy orders (with respect to price and time).

Be very specific and give a numerical examples.

 

 

3.                Consider the following three stocks:

 

                        Stock               Price          Number of shares outstanding

                        Boeing             $130                            300

    

a.       Calculate the price-weighted index constructed with the three stocks using a divisor of 0.165897

b.      How would the divisor (in part (a) above) change if Boeing pays 20 percent stock dividend and the stock of MSFT is split 3 for 1?

c.       Calculate the Value-weighted index constructed with the three stocks using a divisor of 100.

d.      How would the divisor (in part (a) above) change if Boeing pays 20 percent stock dividend and the stock of MSFT is split 3 for 1?

 

 

4.         On February 3, 2020 you purchased 300 shares of MSFT common stock at $152 per share on margin. The initial margin is 60 percent. MSFT paid an amount of dividend of $2 per share on March 1, 2020. Today (April 3, 2020) you close your position at $158 per share.  The interest rate is 12 percent per year compounded daily.

 

                        a.         Prepare an initial margin account.

                        b.         Determine the holding period rate of return of your investment.
