The Mintcoin Inc has just paid an annual dividend of 40 cents per share. You forecast that dividends of Mintcoin Inc will grow at the rate of 25% a year over the next four-year period. From year five on, you expect the subsequent growth rate of dividends to decrease to 8%, the industry average

Construct the time line, showing dividends of the company.

If the required rate of return for the stock is 12%, calculate its price.

D0 = \$0.40 per share

D1 = D0 * 1.25 = \$0.5

D2 = D1 * 1.25 = \$0.625

D3 = D2 * 1.25 = \$0.78125

D4 = D3 * 1.25 = \$0.9765625

D5 = D4 * 1.08 = \$1.0546875

Terminal Value of Dividends from Year 5 onwards = D5/(0.12 - 0.08) = \$26.3671875

Price = PV(D1) + PV(D2) + PV(D3) + PV(D4) + PV(TV)

= 0.5/(1.12) + 0.625/(1.12)2 + 0.78125/(1.12)3 + 0.9765625/(1.12)4 + 26.3671875/(1.12)4 = \$18.88 Screenshot with formulas: #### Earn Coins
