Answer #1

1. **The answer is bearish and bullish**

Short interest shows sentiments of investors. An increase and decrease in short interest signals that investors are bullish and bearish respectively.

2. This is a two stage Dividend Discount Model problem. The formula for DDM is

**P _{o} is the current stock price**

**g is the constant growth rate in perpetuity expected for
the dividends**

**r is the constant cost of equity capital for that
company (or rate of return)**

**D _{1} is the value of the next year's
dividends**

In this first you will have to find out the share price at the end of year 2

P_{2}= $25

Now calculate present price P_{o}. Since, company has
not paid the dividend in first two years. So

P_{o} = $19.24

3. **The number of bullish signal is 2**
