Expert's answer

ROE = 20%, dividend payout ratio is 70%, required return is 18%. The last dividend was RM2.00. The formula for the present value of a stock with constant growth is the estimated dividends to be paid divided by the difference between the required rate of return and the growth rate.If its dividends are expected to grow at the company's internal growth rate indefinitely, the current value of the company's common stock is: P = div0/(r - g) = 2/(0.18 - 0.2*0.7) = RM50.
