If Old Faithful hauls coal. you should be careful not to blindly project past growth into the future. it is not possible for Hotshot to grow at 30 percent per year forever. Therefore. the actual expected rate of return is the solution for r in the following equation: \$2. Current stock price is \$100. a. DIV1 = \$5.
