Question

Which is the better investment: 16% Rs 100 shares at 80 or 20% Rs 100 shares at 120?

Solution

1st case

16% of Rs 100 shares at 80 means;

Market value of 1 share = Rs 80

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 100

Dividend = 16%

Income on Rs 80= 16% of Rs 100 =  Rs 16

income on Rs 1 = `16/80` = Rs 0.20

2nd case

20% of Rs 100 shares at 120 means

Market value of 1 share = Rs 120

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 100

Dividend = 20%

Income on Rs 120 = 20% of Rs 100=  Rs 20

Income on Rs 1 = `20/120 = "Rs"  0.17`

Then 16% Rs 100 shares at 80 is better investment
