the expected pretax return on three stocks is divided between dividends and capital gains in the following way: Stock Expected Dividend Expected Capital Gain
Stock  Expected Dividend  Expected Capital Gain 
A  $0  $10 
B  5  5 
C  10  0 
a. If each stock is priced at $135, what are the expected net percentage returns on each stock to (i) a pension fund that does not pay taxes, (ii) a corporation paying tax at 45% (the effective tax rate on dividends received by corporations is 10.5%), and (iii) an individual with an effective tax rate of 10% on dividends and 5% on capital gains? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answers as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places.)
Answer is complete but not entirely correct.

b. Suppose that investors pay 40% tax on dividends and 10% tax on capital gains. If stocks are priced to yield an aftertax return of 10%, what would A, B, and C each sell for? Assume the expected dividend is a level perpetuity. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)
