(c) 4. a. g = ROE × b = 16% × 0.5 = 8% D 1 = $2(1 – b) = $2(1 – 0.5) = $1 P 0 = D 1 /(k – g) = $1/(0.12 – 0.08) = $25 b. P 3 = P 0 (1 + g) 3 = $25(1.08) 3 = $31.49 5. a. This director is confused. In the context of the constant growth model [i.e., P 0 = D 1 /( k g )], it is true that price is higher when dividends are higher holding everything else including dividend growth constant . But everything else will not be constant. If the firm increases the dividend payout rate, the growth rate g will fall, and stock price will not necessarily rise. In fact, if ROE > k , price will fall. b. (i) An increase in dividend payout will reduce the sustainable growth rate as less funds are reinvested in the firm. The sustainable growth rate (i.e., ROE × plowback) will fall as plowback ratio falls. (ii) The increased dividend payout rate will reduce the growth rate of book
