The firm preferred stock currently sells for RM80 a share and pays a dividend of RM10 per share. The firm common stock currently sells for RM40 per share, but the firm will only pay RM34 per share net from the sale of new common stock. The firm recently paid a dividend of RM2 per share on its common stock, and investors expect the dividend to grow indefinitely at a constant rate of 10 percent per year. The company's tax rate is 40 percent. Assume the firm has sufficient retained earnings to fund the equity portion of its capital budget.
