Answer #1

1.

The maximum amount you are willing to pay for one share of this
stock today = D1 / (r - g)

= $0.62 / (0.14 - 0)

= $0.62 / 0.14

= $4.43

The maximum amount you are willing to pay for one share of this stock today = $4.43

2.

P0 = D0 / current yield = $1.80 / 3.6% = $50

Growth rate = ($1.86 - $1.80) / $1.80 = 3.33%

Required return = (D1 / P0) + g

= ($1.86 / $50) + 3.33%

= 3.72% + 3.33%

= 7.05%

Require rate of return = 7.05%

3.

Market rate of return = (D1 / P0) + g

= ($1.90 / $38.25) + 2.5%

= 4.97% + 2.5%

= 7.47%
