We use need both the DDM and CAPM to evaluate each of the ten stocks. However, note that ddm is not applicable for some of the stocks. I will point those out when we get there.
First, we need the current interest rate. From Finance.yahoo.com, we can find the current 10 year gov't bond yields 2.997%. For ease of calculation, we say that the current rate, r, is 3%.
Lastly, let me remind you the formulae for ddm and capm.
DDM: p = d/(r-g), where p is price, d is annual dividend, r is interest rate and g is dividend growth rate.
CAPM: Expected return = risk free + beta[expected market return - risk free]
Expected market return is found on pg 2 and is PRICE CHANGE-YTD = 7%.
We begin calculating price of ATT
By CAPM, expected return = 0.03 + 0.24(0.07 - ...
This solution explains how to use DDM and CAPM to evaluate the given ten stocks and calculate the fair price of this series of publicly traded stocks.
