Question

Computech Corporation is expanding rapidly and currently needs to retain all of its earnings; hence, it does not pay dividends. However, investors expect Computech to begin paying dividends, beginning with a dividend of $1.00 coming 3 years from today. The dividend should grow rapidly-at a rate of 42% per year-during Years 4 and 5; but after Year 5, growth should be a constant 8% per year. If the required return on Computech is 15%, what is the value of the stock today? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent.

Answer #1

**The value of the stock is computed as shown
below:**

**= Dividend in year 3 / (1 + required rate of
return) ^{3} + Dividend in year 4 / (1 + required rate of
return)^{4} + Dividend in year 5 / (1 + required rate of
return)^{5} + 1 / (1 + required rate of return)^{5}
[ (Dividend in year 5 (1 + growth rate) / ( required rate of return
- growth rate ) ]**

= $ 1 / 1.15^{3} + ( $ 1 x 1.42 ) / 1.15^{4} + (
$ 1 x 1.42^{2} ) / 1.15^{5} + 1 / 1.15^{5}
[ ($ 1 x 1.42^{2} x 1.08) / ( 0.15 - 0.08) ]

= $ 1 / 1.15^{3} + $ 1.42 / 1.15^{4} + $ 2.0164
/ 1.15^{5} + $ 31.11017143 / 1.15^{5}

**= $ 17.94 Approximately**
