1. J&J Manufacturing issued a bond with a \$1,000 par value. The bond has a coupon rate of 7% and makes payments semiannually. If the bond has 30 years remaining and the annual market interest rate is 9.4%, what will the bond sell for today?

2. Chapman’s Inc.’s Mexican subsidiary, V. Gomez Corporation, is expected to pay to Chapman 50 pesos in dividends in 1 year after all foreign and U.S. taxes have been subtracted. The exchange rate in 1 year is expected to be 0.10 dollar per peso. After this, the peso is expected to depreciate against the dollar at a rate of 4% a year forever due to the different inflation rates in the US and Mexico. The peso-denominated divident is expected to grow at a rate of 8% a year indefinitely. Chapman owns 10 million shares of V. Gomez. What is the present value of the dividend stream, in dollars assuming V. Gomez’s cost of equity is 13%?
