The expected annual return for the stock is 15.20 percent. What is the current price of one share of XYZ stock?
Expected Dividend in year 1(D1) = $7.43
Expected Dividend in year 2(D2) = $2.79
Expected Dividend in year 3(D3) = $3.05
Price in Stock in year 2(P2) = $45.78
Expected annual return for the stock (ke)= 15.20%

P0 = $6.450 + $2.102 + $34.496
P0 = $43.05
So, the current price of one share of XYZ stock is $43.05
