Suppose you just won the state lottery, and you have a choice between receiving
\$2,550,000 today or a 20-year annuity of \$250,000, with the first payment coming one
year from today. What rate of return is built into the annuity? Disregard taxes.
N=20
PV=-2,550,000
PMT=250,000
FV=0

Your father is about to retire, and he wants to buy an annuity that will provide him with
\$85,000 of income a year for 25 years, with the first payment coming immediately. The
going rate on such annuities is 5.15%. How much would it cost him to buy the annuity
today?
The PV of the annuity is the sum of the PV of the future 24 yearly payments from t=1 to
t=24 and the first payment at t=0.
N: 24
I/YR: 5.15%
PMT: 85,000
FV: 0
PV = -1,155,959.53
Add the price for the first payment:
Total PV = -(1,155,959.53+85,000) = -1,240,959.53 or -1,240,960
Ten years ago, Lucas Inc. earned \$0.50 per share. Its earnings this year were \$2.20.

N: 10
PV: -0.50
PMT: 0
FV: 2.20
I/YR = 15.97%
What's the rate of return you would earn if you paid \$950 for a perpetuity that pays \$85
per year?
Cost (PV): 950
PMT: 85
I/YR = PMT/PV = 8.95%
