Your friend overheard that you need some cash and asks if you would like to borrow some money. She can lend you $5,000 now (t=0), and in return she wants you to pay her back$1,000 in two years (t=2) and every year after that for the next 5 years, so there will be 6 payments of $1,000 from t=2 to t=7 inclusive. What is the net present value (NPV) of borrowing from your friend? Assume that banks loan funds at interest rates of 10% pa, given as an effective annual rate. An asset's total expected return over the next year is given by: $$r_\text{total} = \dfrac{c_1+p_1-p_0}{p_0}$$ Where $p_0$ is the current price, $c_1$ is the expected income in one year and $p_1$ is the expected price in one year. The total return can be split into the income return and the capital return. Which of the following is the expected capital return?
