Problem 10-29

The Fleming Corporation paid a dividend of \$0.45 last year. Over the next 12 months, the dividend is expected to grow at 13 percent, which is the constant growth rate for the firm. The new dividend after 12 months will represent D1. The required rate of return is 18 percent.

Compute the price of a common share. (Round the final answer to 2 decimal places.)

Common share price ______   \$

Problem 10-34

Triple Peaks Playhouse will pay a quarterly dividend of \$0.50 at the end of the next quarter. It has common share price of \$40.00 and a constant growth rate of 4 percent.

Required rate of return  _______   %

10 - 16)

The relation between bond price and it's interest rate is inverse. i.e., when price increases interest decreases and vice-versa

10 - 29)

share price = D1 / Ke - growth

where Ke = required return

D1 = 0.45*(1+13%) = 0.5085

Share price = 0.5085 / (18% - 13%)

= \$10.17

10 - 34)

Quarterly dividend = 0.50

annual dividend = 0.50*4 = 2

Ke =( D1 / P0 ) + g

Ke = (2 / 40) + 4%

Ke = 9%

(NOTE : here it is assumed that dividend paid for remaining three quarters,and the given growth rate is annual.otherwise answer would be different)
