Answer #1

1. Present value of a constant dividend paying stock = Dividend/rate

PV = 3.36/0.0782 = $42.97

2.

D0 = 2.51

D1 = 2.51*(1+0.233) = 3.095

D2 = 3.095*(1+0.233) = 3.816

D3 = 3.816*(1+0.233) = 4.705

D4 = 4.705*(1+0.031) = 4.851

P3 = D4/(R-g) = 4.851/(0.09-0.031) = 82.22

P0 = 3.095/(1+0.09)^1 + 3.816/(1+0.09)^2 + 4.705/(1+0.09)^3 + 82.22/(1+0.09)^3 = $73.17

3.

D1 = 1.94

D2 = 1.15

D3 = 1.57

D4 = 2.13

D5 = 2.13*(1+0.03) = 2.194

P4 = D5/(R-g) = 2.194/(0.135-0.03) = 20.8943

P0 = 1.94/(1+0.09)^1 + 1.15/(1+0.09)^2 + 1.57/(1+0.09)^3 + 2.13/(1+0.09)^4 + 20.8943/(1+0.09)^4 = $20.27
