A. $19.67

B. $35.84

C. $45.15

D. $40.50

Answer: B

The present value of the income is 2e-0.1×1+2e-0.1×2= $3.447. The three year forward price is obtained by subtracting the present value of the income from the current stock price and then grossing up the result for three years at the risk-free rate. It is (30−3.447)e0.1×3 = $35.84.
