    b、high growth
    c、negative growth
    d、positive growth

17、choosing the right multiplier or set of multipliers requires judgment and benefits from practical experience, multiples of which one is not commonly used?
    a、operating cash flow

18、we need to be cognizant of whether the cash flow projection is in real or nominal terms. if it is in nominal terms, then the appropriate risk-free rate is the ___ rate.

19、correlations with the market ___ with firm financial maturity.
    d、don’t change

20、a number near ___ is appropriate for a market-sensitive venture such as a financial institution or public utility. a number around ___ is appropriate for early-stage ventures that have characteristics more like lotteries.

21、continuing value relies entirely on explicit forecasts of cash flows.

22、continuing value estimates are most reliable if they are made for a period when there is a change in the growth of the firm.

23、by comparing measures of dispersion of alternative multipliers across a sample of comparable firms, a multiplier with high dispersion, standardized by the mean or median value, yields a better estimate.

24、a higher rate of expected growth would increase the cash flow multiplier.

25、direct application of multipliers from comparable public companies could result in an underestimate of continuing value.

26、in the radr form, project risk is the standard deviation of holding-period returns, and the correlation is between project returns and market returns.

27、in the ceq form, project risk is the standard deviation of cash flows, and the correlation is between project cash flows and market returns.

28、the market risk premium is the expected difference between the return on the market and the project return.

29、if the company has attractive investment opportunities, then the earnings/price ratio and cost of capital will be higher, depending on the value of the growth opportunities.
