    Answer : D) $22.69

    Step 1

    We will first calculate the required rate of return r

    Eo= $4.00

    dividend payout ratio = 40%

    Therefore Div0= $1.60 =40%*4

    annual growth rate=g= 6%

    Therefore Div1= next year's dividend= $1.6960 =(1+6%)*1.6

    From the dividend capitalization model the price of share P0 is given by

    Po= Div1/ (r-g)

    Div1 = $1.6960 = dividend in year 1

    r= ?
