iii. Equity risk premium would cause P/E ratios to be generally higher for Country B. A lower equity risk premium implies a lower required return and a higher P/E. 15. a. k = D 1 /P 0 + g D 1 = 0.5 × $2 = $1 g = b × ROE = 0.5 × 0.20 = 0.10 Therefore: k = ($1/$10) + 0.10 = 0.20 = 20% b. Since k = ROE, the NPV of future investment opportunities is zero: 0 10 $ 10 $ k E P PVGO 1 0 = = = c. Since k = ROE, the stock price would be unaffected by cutting the dividend and investing the additional earnings. 16. a. g = ROE × b = 20% × 0.5 = 10% 11 $ 10 . 0 15 . 0 10 . 1 50 . 0 $ g k ) g 1 ( D g k D P 0 1 0 = × = + = = b.

c. P 0 = $11 and P 1 = P 0 (1 + g) = $12.10 (Because the market is unaware of the changed competitive situation, it believes the stock price should grow at 10% per year.) P 2 = $8.551 after the market becomes aware of the changed competitive situation. P 3 = $8.551 × 1.06 = $9.064 (The new growth rate is 6%.)
