Problem 5-30

Reaching a financial goal

Erika and Kitty, who are twins, just received \$45,000 each for their 30th birthdays. They both have aspirations to become millionaires. Each plans to make a \$5,000 annual contribution to her "early retirement fund" on her birthday, beginning a year from today. Erika opened an account with the Safety First Bond Fund, a mutual fund that invests in high-quality bonds whose investors have earned 8% per year in the past. Kitty invested in the New Issue Bio-Tech Fund, which invests in small, newly issued bio-tech stocks and whose investors have earned an average of 19% per year in the fund's relatively short history.
