Solution Preview

1. the discounted dividend model states price = D/(r-g) where d is dividend, r is required return and g is growth rate.
The calculation is very simply, I will show you a step by step solution for the first one and then work out the numbers for the rest.

a) p = 2/(0.08-0.00) = 25
b) p = 37.5
c) p = 50
d) p = 62.5

2. we rearrange price = D/(r-g) => ...
