Answer #1

a. Cost of equity using DCF model=(D1/Share price)+growth rate

=(2.12/25.75)+6%

=8.23%+6%

=14.23%

b. Cost of equity using CAPM model=risk free rate+(beta*(market return-risk free rate))=3%+(1.3*(12%-3%))=14.7%

c. Risk premium is not given. I am assuming 3%. If you have anything please use that.

Cost of equity=bond yield+risk premium=12%+3%=15%

d. If having equal confidence, then take average to find the cost of equity

Cost of equity=(14.23%+14.7%+15%)/3=14.64%
