Problem Suppose you buy a perpetuty-due wth varyng annual payments. The frst 5 payments are constant and equal to. Startng the sxth payment, the payments start to ncrease so that each year s payment s % larger than the prevous years payment.

Annual dvdends are pad at the end of each year forever; the frst dvdend s $ and the expected growth rate for the dvdends s % per year. The annual effectve nterest rate s 5%. Calculate. Soluton. = = 0.0 = Problem Morrs makes a seres of payments at the end of each year for 9 years. The frst payment s. Each subsequent payment through the tenth year ncreases by 5% from the prevous payment. After the tenth payment, each payment decreases by 5% from the prevous payment. Calculate the present value of these payments usng an annual effectve rate of 7%. Soluton We splt our cash flow nto two cash flows:
