A constant-growing stock just paid $2 dividend and has a current market price of $30. 8. a. Assume that the rate of return on the stock is 14% and its last dividend was $1 per share. $16.

Stock analysts just predicted that Hybrid Engine Company's earnings and dividends will grow at 20% each year for the next two years due to its new invention. The required rate of return on Southwest is 15%. After that.44 Step 2: compute P2 = D3/(k-g) D3 = D2(1+g) = 1.8 2.12 2.1 So dividend yield = 2.1/30 = 0. Determine the common stock's dividend yield and capital gain yield for the first year.2)= 1.05 = 0. 7% c.8 Step 3: Compute P0 by discounting D1.05)= 1. 5% b. b Step 1: compute D1. 6.14) (1 + 0. $13.14) 2 3. Determine the stock's required rate of return if the company's constant growth rate is 5%.44(1+0.05)/30 + 0. 14% 1. 7%. its growth rate will stabilize at 5% per year indefinitely.1 d. Southwest Technology's common stock is selling at $30 per share today.512/(0. 5%. a. and P2 to present P0 = 1.7%. 10% d. 10%.1 c.2(1+1.1.2) = 1. c R = D1/Po + g = 2(1+0.8 + + = 15. 8% c.14) (1 + 0.44 16.07 .

so the current stock price not only depends on dividend. their stocks must sell at the same current price or else the market will not be in equilibrium.1) 4 5. D2. All of the above are correct.We have total return = dividend yield + capital gain yield 15% = 7% + capital gain yield So capital gain yield = 15% . the current stock price of a company is ______________. will not pay any dividends for the next three years. True. Heavenly Hotels. $15 Step 1: Compute D1. $20 b. What price should the stock be selling now? a. D3. . False. D4 to present. so we only need to discount D4 and P4 P0 = 2. $12 d. D4 D1 = D2 = D3 = 0 D4 = 2 Step 2: compute P4 = D5/(k-g) P4 = 2/(0. b. The required rate of return on the company's common stock is 10%.b P0 = D1/(k-g). If two firms have the same current P/E ratio and the same EPS. a. Heavenly will pay its first dividend of $2. the sum of the present values of all future dividends c. 5. D2. D3.00 per share at the end of year four and its dividends will stay the same forever. $16 c. zero if the company does not pay dividends d. D1 = D2= D3 = 0.1) (1 + 0.0 20 + = 15 4 (1 + 0.

If two firms have the same current dividend and the same expected growth rate.1-0) = 20 Step 3: Find P0 by discounting D1. their stocks must sell at the same current price or else the market will not be in equilibrium. a. the sum of all future dividends b. growth rate. In this case.b 7.7% = 8% 4.

Morgan anticipates that Sundanci’s earnings and dividends will grow at 32% for two years and 13% thereafter.20. CFA. Assume the current year is the year 2000 (year 0). Calculate the current value of a share of Sundanci stock by using a two-stage dividend discount model and the data from Tables 20A and 20B.

Equity risk premium would cause P/E ratios to be generally higher for Country B. Jones wants to analyze how fundamental P/E ratios might differ among countries. they must be computed using the following formulas: gind = ROE × retention rate = 0. iii. (ii) (iii) .05) = 0. A lower equity risk premium implies a lower required return and a higher P/E.12 Therefore: P0/E1 = 0.2 × 0. He gathered the following economic and market data: Determine whether each of these fundamental factors would cause P/E ratios to be generally higher for Country A or higher for Country B.25 × 0.12 − 0. A lower government bond yield implies a lower risk-free rate and therefore a higher P/E.

a.12 P = $68.60 per share in one year. In this case.99 P = $70.75 + 1. The company has no growth and pays out all earnings as dividends. What is the value per share of the company's stock assuming the firm does not undertake the investment opportunity? If the company does not make any new investments. the stock price will be the present value of the constant perpetual dividends.25. The project is only a two-year project. we get: P = Dividend / R P = $8. all earnings are paid dividends.123 PVGO = $1. assume the company undertakes the investment.75. If the company does undertake the investment. It has a new project which will require an investment of $1. and it will increase earnings in the two years following investment by $2. .45 / 1.74 c. the price of the stock will revert back to $68.122 + $2.25 / . we need the no growth price plus the PVGO. In this case. the value of the company as a cash cow.75 b. the PVGO will be: PVGO = C1 / (1 + R) + C2 / (1 + R)2 + C3 / (1 + R)3 PVGO = –$1. So. so. applying the perpetuity equation. what is the value per share of the stock now? The investment is a one-time investment that creates an increase in EPS for two years. what will be the price per share 4 years from now? After the project is over.12 + $2. Investors require a 12% return on Stambaugh stock. the price of the stock if the company undertakes the investment opportunity will be: P = $68. the PVGO is simply the present value of the investment plus the present value of the increases in EPS.60 / 1.99 So.22.10 / 1. The Stambaugh Corporation currently has earnings per share of $8. and the earnings increase no longer exists. respectively.10 and $2. To calculate the new stock price.45 per share. Again.

what would happen to its stock price? What if Nogro eliminated the dividend? Since k = ROE.20 = 20.23.5 × 0.0% $10 P0 b. This situation is expected to continue indefinitely. By how much does its value exceed what it would be if all earnings were paid as dividends and nothing were reinvested? Since k = ROE. The company has a policy of paying out 50% of its earnings each year in dividends. what rate of return do Nogro’s investors require? a. D1 = 0.10 = 0. Assuming the current market price of the stock reflects its intrinsic value as computed using the constant growth rate DDM. this would have no impact on Nogro’s stock price since the NPV of the additional investments would be zero.20 = 0. The rest is retained and invested in projects that earn a 20% rate of return per year. If Nogro were to cut its dividend payout ratio to 25%. the NPV of future investment opportunities is zero: PVGO = P0 − E0 = $10 − $10 = $0 k c. if Nogro eliminated the dividend. a. . The stock of Nogro Corporation is currently selling for $10 per share. the stock price would be unaffected if Nogro were to cut its dividend payout ratio to 25%. The additional earnings that would be reinvested would earn the ROE (20%).10 Therefore: k= D1 $1 +g = + 0.5 × $2 = $1 g = b × ROE = 0. Again. Earnings per share in the coming year are expected to be $2.
