3. Return to the original 15% required rate of return and assume a dividend growth rate estimate increase to 7% per year, what is the stock value?

4. Explain how each of the four (4) fundamental factors that affect the supply and demand for investment capital, and hence, interest rates, (namely productive opportunities, time preferences for consumption, risk, and inflation) affects the cost of money.

5. Why is risk aversion so important to financial decision making?

6. Explain the three (3) techniques for solving time value problems.
