61. Answer: c As financial manager of Material Supplies Inc., you have recently
participated in an executive committee decision to enter into the
plastics business.
Much to your surprise, the price of the firm's
common stock subsequently declined from $40 per share to $30 per share.
While there have been several changes in financial markets during this
period, you are anxious to determine how the market perceives the
relevant risk of your firm. Assume that the market is in equilibrium.
From the following data you find that the beta value associated with
your firm has changed from an old beta of
to a new beta of
_.
(1) The real riskfree rate is 2 percent, but the inflation premium
has increased from 4 percent to 6 percent.
The expected growth rate has been reevaluated by security
analysts, and a 10.5 percent rate is considered to be more realistic than the previous 5 percent rate. This change had nothing to
do with the move into plastics; it would have occurred anyway.
The risk aversion attitude of the market has shifted somewhat, and
now the market risk premium is 3 percent instead of 2 percent.
The next dividend, D 1, was expected to be $2 per share, assuming
the "old" 5 percent growth rate. (2) (3)

five million shares to fund a new project. The increase in shares will
bring to 25 million the number of shares outstanding. Nahanni's longterm growth rate is 6 percent, and its current required rate of return
is 12.6 percent.
The firm just paid a $1.00 dividend and the stock
sells for $16.06 in the market. On the announcement of the new equity
issue, the firm's stock price dropped.
Nahanni estimates that the
company's growth rate will increase to 6.5 percent with the new project,

Answers and Solutions
1. Required return Answer: e Diff: E 2. Required return Answer: d Diff: E 3. Constant growth model Answer: a Diff: E Statement a is correct; the other statements are false.
The constant
growth model is not appropriate for stock valuation in the absence of a
constant growth rate. If the required rate of return differs for the two
firms due to risk differences, then the firms' stock prices would
differ. 4. Constant growth model Answer: a Diff: E Statement a is correct; the other statements are false. If a stock’s
required return is 12% and its capital gains yield is 5 percent, then
its dividend yield is 12%  5% = 7%.
The expected future dividends
should be discounted at the required rate of return.
5. Constant growth model Answer: c Diff: E Statement c is correct, the others are false. Statement a would only be
true if the dividend yield were zero. Statement b is false; we've been
given no information about the dividend yield. Statement c is true; the
constant rate at which dividends are expected to grow is also the
expected growth rate of the stock’s price.
6. Miscellaneous issues Answer: c Diff: E Statement c is correct; the others are false.
Two classes of common
stock can have different voting rights, as well as pay different
dividends. An IPO occurs when a firm goes public for the first time.
Statement c is the exact definition for a preemptive right.
7. Preemptive right Answer: b Diff: E 8. Classified stock Answer: e Diff: E 9. Efficient markets hypothesis Answer: e Diff: E Statements a through d are incorrect; therefore, statement e is correct.
Statement a is incorrect.
Strongform efficiency states that current
market prices reflect all pertinent information, whether publicly
available or privately held. If it holds, even insiders would find it
impossible to earn abnormal returns in the stock market. Statement b is
incorrect; this describes semistrong form efficiency. 10. Market efficiency Answer: c Diff: E Chapter 8 Page23 Statement c is correct; the other statements are false. Semistrongform
market efficiency implies that only public information, not private, is
rapidly incorporated into stock prices.
Markets can be efficient yet
still price securities differently depending on their risks.
11. Market efficiency Answer: a Diff: E 12. Market efficiency Answer: a Diff: E Statement a is correct; the other statements are false.
Historical

correct choice.
70% of dividends received, not paid out, are tax
deductible.
15. Common stock concepts Answer: d Diff: E Statements b and c are correct; therefore, statement d is the correct

Market efficiency says nothing about the relationship between expected
and realized rates of return.
18. Efficient markets hypothesis Answer: e Diff: M Statement e is correct; the other statements are false. If the stock
market is weakform efficient, you could use private information to
outperform the market.
Semistrongform efficiency means that current

26. Preferred stock value The dividend is calculated as 10% × $120 = $12. We know that the cost
of preferred stock is equal to the dividend divided by the stock price
or 8% = $12/Price. Solve this expression for Price = $150. (Note: Nonparticipating preferred stockholders are entitled to just the stated
dividend rate. There is no growth in the dividend.)
27. Preferred stock yield Answer: c Diff: E Answer: a Diff: E Answer: d Diff: E Annual dividend = $2.50(4) = $10.

37. Aftertax returns Answer: a Diff: M The aftertax yield on the bond is calculated as YTM(1  T). Thus, the
aftertax yield is 10%(1  0.4) = 6%.
The aftertax yield on the
preferred stock (remember 70% of dividends are excluded from taxes) is
9%(1  (0.3)(0.4)) = 7.92%.

42. Nonconstant growth stock Answer: d Diff: M First, find the stock price after two years:
D1 = $1.20.
D2 = $1.20 × 1.15 = $1.38.
D3 = $1.38 × 1.05 = $1.449 ≈ $1.45.
P2 = D3/(ks  g)
= $1.449/(0.12  0.05)
= $20.70.
Discount this amount at 12% for two years to get the present value of
P2, or $16.50.
Second, calculate the present value of D 2, $1.10 (or
$1.38 discounted two years at 12%), and the present value of D 1, $1.07
(or $1.20 discounted one year at 12%). The stock price today is equal
to the sum of these three present values or $18.67.

Required rate of return: k s = 11% + (14%  11%)0.5 = 12.5%.
Calculate growth rate using k s:
$2(1 + g)
D0 (1 + g)
P0 =
; $48 =
0.125  g
ks  g
$6  $48g = $2 + $2g
(Multiply both sides by (0.125  g))
$50g = $4
g = 0.08 = 8%.
Required return equals total yield (Dividend yield + Capital gains
yield).
Dividend yield = $2.16/$48.00 = 4.5%; Capital gains yield = g = 8%.
54. Stock growth rate Answer: e Diff: M The required rate of return on the stock is 9% + (6%)0.8 = 13.8%. Using
the constant growth model, we can solve for the growth rate as $40 =
[$2(1 + g)]/(13.8%  g) or g = 8.38%.
55. Capital gains yield Answer: c Step 1 Calculate k RF, the riskfree rate
16% = kRF + (15%  kRF)1.2
16% = kRF  1.2kRF + 18%

(Multiply both sides by (0.122  g))
$25g = $1.05
g = 0.042 = 4.2%.
Since the stock is growing at a constant rate, g = Capital gains yield.
57. Capital gains yield and dividend yield Answer: e Diff: M Calculate D1 as $3.42 × 1.07 = $3.66.
The dividend yield is
$3.66/$32.35 = 11.31%. The capital gains yield is equal to the longrun
growth rate for this stock (since constant growth) or 7%.

Then, calculate the total amount of dividends, Div = Net income
× Payout = $23,280 × 0.6 = $13,968. Note: Dividends/Share = Total dividend/# of shares outstanding
= $13,968/10,000 = $1.3968.
Because these projections are for the coming year,
dividend is D 1, or the dividend for the coming year. this Step 2 Use the CAPM equation to find the required return on the stock:
kS = kRF + (kM  kRF)b = 0.05 + (0.09  0.05)1.4 = 0.106 = 10.6%. Step 3 Calculate stock price:
P0 = D1/(kS  g)

What is D1?
0.05 = D1/P0
D1 = $1.40.
What will be the Year 8 dividend?
D8 = D1 × (1 + g)7 = $2.399.
The Year 7 price is given by:
P7 = D8/(ks  g) = $2.399/0.05 = $47.98.
64. Future stock price
First, find D6 = $2.00(1.07)5 = $2.805.
0.05(1.2) = 0.12. Answer: b Diff: M Then, calculate k s = 0.06 + It follows that: P 5 = $2.805/(0.12  0.07) = $56.10.
65. Future stock price Answer: b Diff: M To find the growth rate:
ks = D1/P0 + g
Therefore ks  D1/P0 = g
0.12  $2/$20 = 0.02.
To find P5 we can use the following formula:
P5 = D6/(ks  g).
We therefore need D 6.
D6 = D1(1 + g)5
= $2(1.02)5 = $2.2082.
Therefore P5 = D6/(ks  g) = $2.2082/(0.12  0.02) = $22.0820.
