**Problem 1**

Suppose a dividend of $1.25 was

paid. The stock has a required rate of return of 11.2% and investors expect the

dividend to grow at a constant rate of 10%. Complete parts (a) through (e)

below.

a) Compute D_{0}, D_{1}, D_{2},D_{3}

and D_{7}.

b) Compute the present value of the dividends for

t = 3 years.

c) Compute the current market price.

**Problem 2**

Suppose a dividend that pays at

$1.07 has a growth rate of 20% for the first 3 years. After the 3 years, there

is a long-run growth rate of 8%. The stock has a required rate of return of

12.4%. Find the current market price of a share of common stock.

**Problem 3**

Assume the beta coefficient for

a company’s stock is?= 0.2, the risk-free rate of return, r_{RF}, is 8% and the

required rate of return on the market, r_{M}, is 14%. Assume the

dividend expected during the coming year is D_{1} = $2.50 and the

growth rate is a constant 7%. Compute the price at which the company’s stock

should sell.

**Problem 4**

A stock is expected to pay a dividend of $0.75 at the end of the year. The required rate of return is r_{s}

= 10.5%, and the expected constant growth rate is g = 6.4%. What is the stock’s current price?
