Question

Valuation of a constant growth stock

Investors require a 15% rate of return on Levine Company's stock (that is, rs = 15%). What is its value if the previous dividend was D0 = $2.50 and investors expect dividends to grow at a constant annual rate of (1) -2%, (2) 0%, (3) 3%, or (4) 10%? Round answers to the nearest hundredth.

(1) $

(2) $

(3) $

(4) $

Using data from part a, what would the Gordon (constant growth) model value be if the required rate of return was 15% and the expected growth rate were (1) 15% or (2) 20%? Are these reasonable results?

I. The results show that the formula does not make sense if the required rate of return is equal to or greater than the expected growth rate.

II. The results show that the formula makes sense if the required rate of return is equal to or less than the expected growth rate.

III. The results show that the formula makes sense if the required rate of return is equal to or greater than the expected growth rate.

IV. These results show that the formula does not make sense if the expected growth rate is equal to or less than the required rate of return.
