    The percentage profit if you purchase the stock and it rises to $30 a share

    = $166.67

    Explanation:

    Titanic stock is $20 a share. You have $40,000 of your own funds to invest.

    ∴ $4,000.00/$20 = 200.00 shares were bought with $4,000.00

    With margin of 50 percent and maintenance margin of 30 percent,

    50% + 20% = 80%

    ∴ New Cost of Stock ($30.00) : $4,000.00)

    = $133.33 X 0.80

    = $166.67
