P 7-12. Common stock value—Variable growth Newman Manufacturing is considering a cash purchase of the stock of Grips Tool. During the year just completed, Grips earned $4.25 per share and paid cash dividends of $2.55 per share ( D 0 _$2.55). Grips’ earnings and dividends are expected to grow at 25% per year for the next 3 years, after which they are expected to grow at 10% per year to infinity. What is the maximum price per share that Newman should pay for Grips if it has a required return of 15% on investments with risk characteristics similar to those of Grips? D1 = $2.55 (D0) x 1.25 = $3.1875 ; PV of D1 = 3.1875/(1+.15) 1 = 2.7717 D2 = $3.1875 x 1.25 = $3.984 ; PV of D2 = 3.984/(1+.15) 2 = 3.0125 D3= $3.984 x 1.25 = $4.98 ; PV of D3 = 4.98/(1+.15)
