5. Problem 9.11 (Valuation of a Constant Growth Stock)

A stock is expected to pay a dividend of $1.00 at the end of the
year (i.e., D_{1} = $1.00), and it should continue to grow
at a constant rate of 6% a year. If its required return is 15%,
what is the stock's expected price 1 year from today? Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest
cent.

7. Problem 9.14 (Nonconstant Growth)

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 $1.25 coming 3 years from today. The dividend should grow rapidly - at a rate of 30% 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 12%, what is the value of the stock today? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent. $ |

Answer #1

5.Current price=D1/(Required return-Growth rate)

=1/(0.15-0.06)

=$11.11(Approx)

Hence expected price=Current price*(1+Growth rate)

=11.11*1.06

**=$11.78(Approx).**

7.

D3=1.25

D4=(1.25*1.3)=1.625

D5=(1.625*1.3)=2.1125

Value after year 5=(D5*Growth rate)/(Required return-Growth rate)

=(2.1125*1.08)/(0.12-0.08)

=57.0375

Hence current value=Future dividend and value*Present value of discounting factor(rate%,time period)

=1.25/1.12^3+1.625/1.12^4+2.1125/1.12^5+57.0375/1.12^5

**=$35.49(Approx)**
