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.

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 - ...
