# Can you please check this work to see if i done it correctly. i left out section D on purpose. Thank you

Problem 9.37         Supernormal Growth   Ceebros Builders is expanding very fast and is expected to grow at a rate of 25 percent for the next four years. The company recently paid a dividend of \$3.60 but is not expected to pay any dividends for the next 3 years. In year 4, management expects to pay a \$5 dividend and thereafter to increase the dividend at a constant rate of 6 percent. The required rate of return on such stocks is 20 percent.

a. Calculate the present value of the dividends during the fast growth period. D0 = \$3.60 g1-4 = 25.00% Required Rate of Return (R) = 20.00% D1 = \$4.5000 PV_D1 = \$3.7500

D2 = \$5.6250 PV_D2 = \$3.9063

D3 = \$7.0313 PV_D3 = \$4.0690

D4 = \$8.7891 PV_D4 = \$4.2386

PV of Dividends (years 1-4): \$15.9638

b. What is the value of the stock at the end of the fast growth period (i.e. P4)?

Hint: Calculate D5 (expected dividend in year 5) and use the constant growth dividend model to estimate P4.

Constant Growth Rate (g) = 6.00%

D5 = \$9.3164

P4 = \$66.5458

c. What is the value of the stock today?

Hint: Find the present value of P4 and add this amount to the present value of the first four years of dividends.

PV_P4 = \$26.7432

Current Price of the Stock (P0) = \$42.71

d. Would today's stock value be affected by the length of time you intend to hold the stock?

PV of Dividends (years 1-4) is \$2.41 The value of... View the full answer
