Question

1.      Gentry Can Company's (GCC) latest annual dividend of $1.25 a share was paid yesterday and maintained

its historic 7 percent annual rate of growth. You plan to purchase the stock today because you believe that the dividend growth rate will increase to 8 percent for the next three years and the selling price of the stock will be $40 per share at the end of that time.

a.      How much should you be willing to pay for the GCC stock if you require a 12 percent return?

b.      What is the maximum price you should be willing to pay for the GCC stock if you believe that the 8 percent growth rate can be maintained indefinitely and you require a 12 percent return?
