Expert's answer

Star Company paid $5 per share dividend a week ago. General expectation is that the dividend would grow at 8% per year indefinitely.

a) The expected dividend next year will be 5*1.08 = $5.

b) If an investor requires 12%, the price of the share will be P = D/(r - i) = 5/(0.12 - 0.08) = $125.

a) The expected dividend next year will be 5*1.08 = $5.

b) If an investor requires 12%, the price of the share will be P = D/(r - i) = 5/(0.12 - 0.08) = $125.
