# Question : 19.Return calculations with warrants (LO19-4) Mr. John Hailey has \$1,000 : 1553917

19.Return calculations with warrants (LO19-4) Mr. John Hailey has \$1,000 to invest in the market. He is considering the purchase of 50 shares of Comet Airlines at \$20 per share. His broker suggests that he may wish to consider purchasing warrants instead. The warrants are selling for \$10, and each warrant allows him to purchase one share of Comet Airlines common stock at \$18 per share.

a.How many warrants can Mr. Hailey purchase for the same \$1,000?

b.If the price of the stock goes to \$40, what would be his total dollar and percentage return on the stock?

c.At the time the stock goes to \$40, the speculative premium on the warrant goes to 0 (though the market value of the warrant goes up). What would be Mr. Hailey’s total dollar and percentage returns on the warrant?

d.Assuming that the speculative premium remains \$3.50 over the intrinsic value, how far would the price of the stock have to fall from \$40 before the warrant has no value?
