CH 8 Preferred Stock
A hybrid security: It’s like common stock no fixed maturity. Technically, it’s part of equity capital. It’s like debt preferred dividends are fixed. Missing a preferred dividend does not constitute default, but preferred dividends are cumulative. Preferred Stock Usually sold for $25, $50, or $100 per share.
Dividends are fixed either as a dollar amount or as a percentage of par value. Example: In 1988, Xerox issued $75 million of 8.25% preferred stock at $50 per share. $4.125 is the fixed, annual dividend per share. Preferred Stock Features Firms may have multiple classes of preferreds, each with different features. Priority: lower than debt, higher than common stock.
Cumulative feature: all past unpaid preferred stock dividends must be paid before any common stock dividends are declared. Preferred Stock Features Protective provisions are common.
Convertibility: many preferreds are convertible into common shares.
Adjustable rate preferreds have dividends tied to interest rates.
Participation: some (very few) preferreds have dividends tied to the firm’s earnings. Preferred Stock Features PIK Preferred: Payinkind preferred stocks pay additional preferred shares to investors rather than cash dividends.
Retirement: Most preferreds are callable, and many include a sinking fund provision to set cash aside for the purpose of retiring preferred shares. Common Stock

Security In general, the intrinsic value of an asset = the present value of the stream of expected cash flows discounted at an appropriate required rate of return. Preferred Stock
Valuation A preferred stock can usually be valued like a perpetuity: Vps = D
k ps Example: Xerox preferred pays an 8.25% dividend on a $50 par value. Suppose our required rate of return on Xerox preferred is 9.5%. Vps = 4.125
.095 = $43.42 Expected Rate of
Return on Preferred
Return Just adjust the valuation formula: Vps = D
k ps kps = D
Example If we know the preferred stock price is $40, and the preferred dividend is $4.125, the expected return is: kps = D
Po = 4.125
40 Common Stock Valuation
(Single Holding Period) You expect XYZ stock to pay a $5.50 dividend at the end of the year. The stock price is expected to be $120 at that time. If you require a 15% rate of return, what would you pay for the stock now? ?
0 5.50 + 120
1 Common Stock Valuation
(Single Holding Period)
Vcs = (5.50/1.15) + (120/1.15) = 4.783 + 104.348 = $109.13 Common Stock Valuation
(Multiple Holding Periods) Constant Growth Model Assumes common stock dividends will grow at a constant rate into the future. Vcs = D1
kcs - g Constant Growth Model
Constant Growth Model Assumes common stock dividends will grow at a constant rate into the future. Vcs = D1
kcs - g D1 = the dividend at the end of period 1.
kcs = the required return on the c/s.
g = the constant, annual dividend growth rate. Example
Example XYZ stock recently paid a $5.00 dividend. The dividend is expected to grow at 10% per year indefinitely. What would we be willing to pay if our required return on XYZ stock is 15%? D0 = $5, so D1 = 5 (1.10) = $5.50 Example
