Heleveton, Inc. currently pays a dividend of $1.20 per share. Dividends are expected to increase at the rate of $0.10 per share for the next eight years. Determine the current value of Heleveton`s common stock to an investor who expects to be able to sell the stock for
$28 after 5 years. Assume that the investor requires a 12 percent rate of return on the security.
You are an analyst studying Beranek Technologies, which was founded 10 years ago. It has been profitable for the last 5 years, but it has needed all of its earnings to support growth and thus has never paid a dividend. Management has indicated that it plans to pay a $0.50 dividend 3 years from today, then to increase it at a relatively rapid rate for 2 years, and then to increase it at a constant rate of 8.00% thereafter. Your forecast of the future dividend stream, along with the forecasted growth rates, is shown below. Assuming a required return of 11.00%, what is your estimate of Beranek`s current intrinsic value?
Zero current div, non-constant then constant growth
Required return 11%
