Question #57906
The Ship Corp. has paid annual dividends of $0.48, $0.60, and $0.62 a share over the past three years, respectively. The company now predicts that it will maintain a constant dividend since its business has leveled off and sales are expected to remain relatively constant. Given the lack of future growth, at what price will you only buy this stock if you can earn at least a 14 percent rate of return?

Dividends of $0.48, $0.60, and $0.62 a share over the past three years, 14 percent rate of return.
If the last year dividents were $0.62 per share, the expected rate of return is 14% and there will be no growth in divedents in the future, then the price of the stock will be: P = D/(k - g) = 0.62/(0.14 - 0) = $4.43 per share.
