    Can you help me get started with this assignment?

    The last dividend that was paid yesterday (D0) on a Corporation's common stock was $8.00, and the expected growth rate is 0 percent. The required rate of return on this stock is 10 percent.

    1. What is the present value of the future growth opportunity represented by the 5% growth rate, compared to 0% growth rate?

    2. What is the highest price you should be willing to pay for this stock?

    3. Suppose the firm's expected growth rate is 5% now, what is the price of the stock?
    Assume that the other information remains the same as before,
    i.e., D0 = $8; ks = 10%.

    4. Assume the constant growth rate is 5%. What is the stock price at time 1, i.e., one year from today? Assume that the other information remains the same as before,
    i.e., D0 = $8; ks = 10%.
