Luna Lemon has just paid an annual dividend of $0.45 per share. Analysts expect the firm's dividends to grow by 5% forever. Its stock price is $34.9. What is Luna Lemon's cost of equity?
Compute the next year’s dividend, using the equation as shown below:
Dividend = Current dividend*(1 + Growth rate)
= $0.45*(1 + 0.05)
Hence, the next year’s dividend is $0.4725.
Compute the cost of equity, using the equation as shown below:
Cost of equity = (Dividend/ Stock price) + Growth rate
= ($0.4725/ $34.90) + 5%
Hence, the cost of equity is 6.353868194%
