company’s industry is expected to grow at a constant rate of 6% and that its
dividend yield is 8%. Your company is about as risky as the average firm in the
industry, but it has just successfully completed some R&D work that leads
you to expect that its earnings and dividends will grow at a rate of 50% [D_{1} =
D_{0}(1 + g) = D_{0}(1.50)] this year and 25% the following
year, after which growth should return to the 6% industry average. If the last
dividend paid (D_{0}) was $2.75, what is the value per share of your
