Solutions to Valuation Questions 1. Assume you expect a company’s net income to remain stable at \$1,100 for all future years, and you expect all earnings to be distributed to stockholders at the end of each year, so that common equity also remains stable for all future years (assumes clean surplus). Also, assume the company’s β = 1.5, the market risk premium is 4% and the 20-30 year yield on risk free treasury bonds is 5%. Finally, assume the company has 1,000 shares of common stock outstanding. a. Use the CAPM to estimate the company’s equity cost of capital. r e = RF + β * (RM – RF) = 0.05 + 1.5 * 0.04 = 11% b. Compute the expected net distributions to stockholders for each future year. D = NI – Δ CE = \$1,100 – 0 = \$1,100 c. Use the dividend discount (i.e., free cash flow to equity investors) valuation model to estimate the company’s current stock price. P e = D / r e = \$1,100 / 0.11 = \$10,000 price per share = \$10,000 / 1,000 = \$10 2. Same facts as in (1) above, but assume you expect the company’s income to be \$1,100 in the coming year and to grow at the rate of 5% in every subsequent year into infinity. Also, assume that the company’s common equity as of the end of the most recent fiscal year is \$8,000, and the investment needed to support the growth in net income causes common equity to increase by 5% each year. Assume the company is an all-equity firm; i.e., all financing comes from stockholders and none comes for debtholders. In this case, the company’s balance sheet has net operating assets (NOA) of \$8,000, common equity (CE) of \$8,000, and zero net financial obligations (NFO). a. Compute D 1 for the coming year and the rate of growth in D t for every year thereafter. D 1 = NI 1 Δ CE 1 = 1,100 – 0.05 * 8,000 = 700 D 2 = NI 2 Δ CE 2 = (1,100 * 1.05) – 0.05 * (1.05 * 8,000) = 1.05 * (1,100 – 0.05 * 8,000) = 735 = 700 * (1 + 0.05) D 3 = NI 3 Δ CE 3 = (1,100 * 1.05 2 ) – 0.05 * (1.05 2 * 8,000) = 771.75 = 735 * (1 + 1.05) so D is 700 in year 1 and grows at 5% per year thereafter.

### 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.
