Since then it has split 2 new-for-1 old, twice. The current dividend is \$0.16. If you have a required rate of return of 14 percent, what is the most you can pay for this stock?(Hint: first calculate the dividend growth rate from these two dividends, be careful with the most recent dividend, think what would it have been if the two splits had not occurred) Solution If the split had not occurred the new dividend would have been 0.16*2=\$0.32 ( ) ( ) 0 10 1 1/10 10 10 10 10 0 0 0.30; 0.32; 0.32 1 1 1 0.006475 0.30 0.6475% D D D D D g g D g = = = + = = = = In your calculators PV=0.30; FV=0.32; PMT=0; N=10; CPT I/Y=0.6475 (The I/Y is your growth rate in this case) 2. An 8-percent-coupon bond sells for \$800 and matures in seven years. Calculate its yield to maturity, assuming the following: a. The bond pays a single annual interest payment. b. The bond pays interest semiannually. Solution a. PV=-800, FV=1000, N=7, PMT=0.08*1000=80, CPT I/Y=12.44% and YTM=12.44% b. PV=-800, FV=1000, N=7*2=14, PMT=(0.08*1000)/2=40, CPT I/Y= 6.175% and YTM=2*6.175%=12.35
