C.

Alberto Trucking is expected to pay an annual dividend of \$2.70 per share next year. The stock is currently selling for \$34.50 a share. What is the expected total return on this stock if that return is equally divided between a dividend yield and a capital gains yield?

Annual Dividend = \$4.00
Required Return = 27%

Current Price = Annual Dividend / Required Return
Current Price = \$4.00 / 0.27
Current Price = \$14.81

So, current worth per share is \$14.81

Current Dividend, D0 = \$2.00
Rate of Return, r = 16.00%
Growth Rate, g = 4.60%

D2 = D0 * (1 + g)^2
D2 = \$2.00 * 1.046^2
D2 = \$2.1882

P1 = D2 / (r - g)
P1 = \$2.1882 / (0.16 - 0.046)
P1 = \$2.1882 / 0.114
P1 = \$19.19

So, price per share after 1 year is \$19.19
