Review the information and questions for the case Castles in the Air, posted as a link below Using the NPV example provided below as a template, or by creating your own, develop your model for this case

TIP: If you use the NPV example as a template, update ALL figures to match the actual problem – this is the biggest error made by students, failing to update the template completely.

Complete the Module 4 Assignment using the included Excel Spreadsheet template. This assignment focuses on financial statement analysis and financial ratios. All assignments must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Sunday. Late assignments will be graded per the Late Assignment Policy posted within the syllabus. The grading rubric is listed below.

Questions:

1.Describe James Franey’s experience and training in fixed income arbitrage. What is the main strategies of his firm Kentish Town Capital

2.Describe the trading opportunity James Franey discovered on November 4, 2008.

3.Explain the “Risk Replacement” trade after the Lehman collapse.

4.What is the Val01 for each of the two Treasury securities (ignore financing cost)? Why does the long/short position (long/short ratio) x =1.13755 （1/x = 0.8791）?

5.Assume convergence of yields to the mid-point of 3.61% and 3.26%, what is the profit for a successful trading where the long position is a $1,000 face value bond? (Hint: it’s about $26 but can you calculate the exact amount?)

6.James Franey has committed $30 million risk capital to initiate the trading position. What is the expected profit if the yields of the two bonds converge to the mid-point?

7.In late November, yield spread has increased to 51 basis points, and James Franey has lost more than 20% on his initial $30 million risk capital. He chose to stop the loss and closed his position. Will you do the same？Explain.

8.On December 30, yield spread has dropped from a peak of 77 basis points to about 62 basis points. What is your recommendation to James Franey: resume the original trade? reverse the trade? or stay out of the trade?

9.What do you think are the causes of this arbitrage opportunity (mis-pricing of bonds)?

After you graduate from college and start your professional career, you will need to consider investing for your retirement. A 401(k) plan is a retirement plan offered by many companies. Such plans are tax-deferred savings vehicles, meaning that any deposits you make into the plan are deducted from your current pretax income, so no current taxes are paid on the money. For example, assume your salary will be $50,000 per year. If you contribute $3,000 to the 401(k) plan, you will pay taxes on only $47,000 in income. There are also no taxes paid on any capital gains or income while you are invested in the plan, but you do pay taxes when you withdraw money at retirement. As is fairly common, the company also has a 5% match. This means that the company will match your contribution up to 5% of your salary, but you must contribute the amount that you want matched, up to the maximum.

The 401(k) plan has several options for investments, most of which are mutual funds. A mutual fund is a portfolio of assets. When you purchase shares in a mutual fund, you are actually purchasing partial ownership of the fund’s assets. The return of the fund is the weighted average of the return of the assets owned by the fund, minus any expenses. The largest expense is typically the management fee, paid to the fund manager. The management fee is compensation for the manager, who makes all of the investment decisions for the fund.

Consider the following questions based on the history of capital markets.

What advantages do mutual funds offer compared to the company stock?

Assume that you invest 5 percent of your salary and receive the full 5 percent match from your employer. What EAR do you earn from the match? What conclusions do you draw about matching plans?

DQ1

ABC Company has hired you to explain the criteria for assessing the performance of a security, specifically expected rate of return, standard deviation of rate of return, and coefficient of variation (CV). They also want you to show how, by forming a portfolio, an instrument can be generated that has properties better than each of its constituents in terms of the standard deviation of rate of return and CV. How would you explain and show this information to ABC Company?

The Single Index Model (SIM) is one of the cornerstone models in asset pricing. The objective of this project is to use Excel to test the implications of the SIM. A sample of the excel file will be provided. In this sample file, the SIM will be estimated for one company. Then we will use this developed excel file to extend the test for two companies and conduct a comparative analysis. The two campanies that we use are Walmart Inc and Apple.

Your report should:

Only three bullet points here

Outline the method and data used

Evaluate the findings

Discuss the implications for asset pricing

Evaluate the findings

Discuss the implications for asset pricing

A high standard report will:

provide clear, concise explanations

provide critical analysis rather than a description

incorporate both theory and evidence in your analysis

use appropriate scholarly research

recommend strategies for investors

1,500 words is the maximum length of the report. A 10% tolerance applies. Tables, diagrams, and appendices are allowed and are not included in the word count; however, they should be used sparingly and all key arguments must be in the main body of the report.

you are expected to write in complete sentences and well-structured paragraphs with introduction and conclusion sections. Headings and subheadings are encouraged. The coursework must be presented in PDF or Word format.

You should use Times New Roman 12 point font, setup your page size to A4 paper, 1 inch (2.5cm) margins from each side (top, bottom, left, right), 1.5 line spacing, justified margins with footnotes on the same page rather than endnotes. Use the same paragraph format throughout. Number all your pages, tables and diagrams sequentially. Tables and diagrams must have a title and relevant description. Graph axes must be clearly labelled. Readers should be able to understand all tables and diagrams without referring to the main text.

There should be at least ten references in Harvard formatting with the references at the end of the document at it should not be the footnote. Also, the excel sheet for the assignment is attached so there is no need to create a new excel sheet and please use this excel sheet to do all the analysis and evaluations.

Also for the data and methods it should be 2000-2021 data. Also for the regression there should be summary statistics and the regression equation for the scatter plot should be given, thank you.

Please find attachment 1 as the excel sheet for the for the evaluations and results

For the evaluation part there should be a discussion about the R-squared, RMSE, beta=significance, intercept, total risk (systematic risk and idiosyncratic risk) < kurtosis/ skewness

Please find the second attachment and divide your work into those the six sections and the emphasize should be about the results section where you make a similar table and provide an explanation document into how this table is done.

If we work well this time, we will have an opportunity to work the next time as well, thank you so much!
