Price of a One year Forward Contract on Stock MCQ

Question

XYZ is a stock currently priced at $100.  It is anticipated that XYZ will pay a special dividend of $5.25 in 1 year.  Assume further that the annual effective interest rate is 5% (i.e., $100 loaned today will return $105 one year from now).  What is closest to the price of a one year forward contract, if we assume that the contract entails delivery of the asset immediately AFTER the dividend is paid (so that the buyer of the forward will not receive the dividend)?

(a)  $90

(b)  $95

(c)  $100

(d)  $105

(e)  $110

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
