BAC1644 tutorial Ch 7 2. We need to find the required return of the stock. Using the constant growth model, we can solve the equation for R . Doing so, we find: R = (D 1 / P 0 ) + g R = (\$2.45 / \$49.50) + .055 R = .1045 or 10.45% 4. Using the constant growth model, we find the price of the stock today is: P 0 = D 1 / ( R g ) P 0 = \$3.85 / (.14 .0475) P 0 = \$41.62 6. We know the stock has a required return of 11 percent, and the dividend and capital gains yield are equal, so: Dividend yield = 1/2(.10) Dividend yield = .050 = Capital gains yield Now we know both the dividend yield and capital gains yield. The dividend is simply the stock price times the dividend yield, so: D 1 = .050(\$65) D 1 = \$3.25 This is the dividend next year. The question asks for the dividend this year. Using the relationship between the dividend this year and the dividend next year: D 1 = D 0 (1 + g ) We can solve for the dividend that was just paid: \$3.25 = D 0 (1 + .05) D 0 = \$3.25 / 1.05 D 0 = \$3.10 13. Here, we have a stock that pays no dividends for nine years. Once the stock begins paying dividends, it will have a constant growth rate of dividends. We can use the constant growth model at that point.

### 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.
