1. Bob’s Country Bunker (BCB), a chain of economically priced motels in the Midwestern United States has reviewed its current target structure of 40% debt and 60% equity. It can issue debt at a rate of 9%. The last dividend paid on its stock was $1.25. The company is doing very well and expects to maintain its current growth rate of 5%. The firm’s tax rate is 35%, and the common stock currently sells at $29. The company is considering two projects: Project A which has an expected rate of return of 14%, and Project B which has an expected rate of return of 10%. Both projects are equally risky and the firm can accept both.
