What is the dividend yield, the capital gains yield, and the expected rate of return of the stock? (Enter your answers as a whole percent.)

A. This preferred stock will be paying dividends perpetually of \$5.6.

Value of perpetuity (@10% discount rate) = Annual Dividend/Discount rate

=> Value of preferred share = \$5.6/10% =\$56

B. After one year, assuming there is no change in discount rate (10%).

Value of perpetual share in year 2 = \$5.6/10% = \$56

C. Dividend yield = Annual dividend/Share price

Dividend yield = \$5.6/56 = 10%

Capital Gains yield = (Final price - Initial Price)/Initial Price

=> Capital gains yield = 0%

Expected Rate of Return or Total Return on Stock = Dividend yield + Capital gains yield = 10%
