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 \$0.75 coming 3 years from today. The dividend should grow rapidly - at a rate of 45% 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 17%, what is the value of the stock today? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent.

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 ) ]

= \$ 0.75 / 1.173 + ( \$ 0.75 x 1.45 ) / 1.174 + ( \$ 0.75 x 1.452 ) / 1.175 + 1 / 1.175 [ (\$ 0.75 x 1.452 x 1.08) / ( 0.17 - 0.08) ]

= \$ 0.75 / 1.173 + \$ 1.0875 / 1.174 + \$ 1.576875 / 1.175 + \$ 18.9225 / 1.175

= \$ 0.75 / 1.173 + \$ 1.0875 / 1.174 + \$ 20.499375 / 1.175

= \$ 10.40 Approximately
