Current stock price            \$

If the benchmark price–sales ratio for the company is 5, how much will you pay for the stock? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)

Current stock price            \$

Sales = \$1,600,000
Number of shares outstanding = 140,000

Sales per share = Sales / Number of shares outstanding
Sales per share = \$1,600,000 / 140,000
Sales per share = \$11.4286

Sales per share = \$11.4286
Price-sales Ratio = 5.60

Current Stock Price = Sales per share * Price-sales Ratio
Current Stock Price = \$11.4286 * 5.60
Current Stock Price = \$64.00

Sales per share = \$11.4286
Price-sales Ratio = 5.00

Current Stock Price = Sales per share * Price-sales Ratio
Current Stock Price = \$11.4286 * 5.00
Current Stock Price = \$57.14
