Calculate the growth rate in dividends. b. Calculate the expected dividend yield. c. Assuming that the calculated growth rate is expected to continue, you can add the dividend yield to the expected growth rate to obtain the expected total rate of return. What is this stock’s expected total rate of return? 70. Suppose D0 = $1.15 and rs = 10%. The expected growth rate from Year 0 to Year 3 (g0 to3) = 30%, and the constant rate beyond Year 3 is gL = 8%.

    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.
