Cost of equity Advantages and Disadvantages of Dividend Growth Model Advantages: simplicity Disadvantages: 1. Only applicable to companies currently paying dividends 2.

2. The Security Market Line Approach (SML) The SML essentially tells us the reward (return) for bearing risk in financial markets – what return is expected for a given level of risk required return is a function of 3 things: 1. risk free rate 2. market risk premium 3. systematic risk of the asset relative to the average risk - called the ‘beta’ coefficient Cost of equity
1. risk free rate: return on a risk free asset 2. market risk premium - reflecting the return associated with the market as a whole e.g. the Saudi market return 3. systematic risk of the asset relative to the average risk called the ‘ beta’ coefficient : A measure of the systematic risk, of a security or a portfolio in comparison to the market as a whole - so if the stock historically is much more volatile (risky) than the market then the return should reflect that incremental risk Cost of equity

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
