Question

A man invests Rs 11,200 in a company paying 6 per cent per annum when its Rs 100 shares can be bought for ₹ 140. Find:

1) his annual dividend

2) his percentage return on his investment.

Solution

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 100

Market value of 1 share = Rs 140

Total investment = Rs 11,200

No of shares purchased = 11200/140 = 80 shares

Then nominal value of 80 shares= 80 × 100= Rs 8,000

1) Dividend% = 6%

Dividend = 6% of Rs 8,000

= 6/100 xx "Rs"  8000 = "Rs"  480

2) Return%= "Income"/"Investment" xx 100%

= 480/11200 xx  100%

=4.29%
