Because of the highrisk nature of Option 5, company policy requires that the total amount invested in Option 5 be no more that the combined amount invested in Options 2, 4 and 6. In addition, if an investment is made in Option 3, it is required that at least a minimum investment be made in Option 6. ABC has $80 million to invest and obviously wants to maximize its total expected return on investment. Which options should ABC invest in, and how much should be invested?
