D) NPV is positive only for discount rates greater than the internal rate of return.

Use the following information to answer the question(s) below.

Sarah Palin reportedly was paid a $11 million advance to write her book Going Rogue. The book took one year to write. In the time she spent writing, Palin could have been paid to give speeches and appear on TV news as a political commentator. Given her popularity, assume that she could have earned $8 million over the year (paid at the end of the year) she spent writing the book. Assume that she was able to write the book while simultaneously fulfilling her media commitments of appearing on TV news as a political commentator and give speeches.

2) Assume that once her book is finished, it is expected to generate royalties of $5 million in the first year (paid at the end of the year) and these royalties are expected to decrease by 40% per year in perpetuity. Assuming that Palin's cost of capital is 10% and given these royalties payments, the NPV of Palin's book deal is closest to:

A) $3.75 million

B) $12.20 million

C) $13.00 million

D) $13.75 million


3) Which of the following statements is false?

A) In general, the difference between the cost of capital and the IRR is the maximum amount of estimation error in the cost of capital estimate that can exist without altering the original decision.

B) The IRR can provide information on how sensitive your analysis is to errors in the estimate of your cost of capital.

C) If you are unsure of your cost of capital estimate, it is important to determine how sensitive your analysis is to errors in this estimate.

D) If the cost of capital estimate is more than the IRR, the NPV will be positive.
