Download this IBM Stock Information document (.pdf file). Please note that the following information contained in this document must be used to complete the subsequent questions.
IBM's beta (à?)
IBM's current annual dividend
IBM's 3-year dividend growth rate (g)
Industry P/E
IBM's EPS.
With the information you now have, use the CAPM to calculate IBM's required rate of return or ks.
Use the CGM to find the current stock price for IBM. We will call this the theoretical price or Po.
Now use appropriate Web resources to find IBM's current stock quote, or P. Compare Po and P. Do you see any differences? Can you explain what factors may be at work for such a difference in the two prices? This section is especially important - with more weight in grading - so you may want to do some study before answering such a question. Explain your thoughts clearly.
Now assume the market risk premium has increased from 7.5% to 10%; and this increase is due only to the increased risk in the market. In other words, assume krf and stock's beta remains the same for this exercise. What will the new price be? Explain what happened.
Recalculate IBM's stock using the P/E ratio model and the needed info found in the IBM pdf file. Explain why the present stock price is different from the price arrived at using CGM (Constant Growth Model).
