What is the dividend yield of this stock?

#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

The dividend yield is computed as shown below:

= Next Dividend per share / market price per share

Market price per share is computed as follows:

= Dividend just paid (1 + growth rate) / ( discount rate - growth rate)

= (\$ 4.75 x 1.043) / (0.089 - 0.043)

= \$ 4.95425 / 0.046

= \$ 107.701087

Next dividend per share is computed as follows:

= Current dividend (1 + growth rate)

= \$ 4.75 x 1.043

= \$ 4.95425

So, the dividend yield is computed as follows:

= \$ 4.95425 / \$ 107.701087

= 4.6%
