I am an analysts valuing the stock of a company. I have projected earnings and dividends three years out (to t=3), and have gathered the following data and estimates:

* Required rate of return = .10
* Average dividend payout rate for mature companies in the market = .45
* Industry average ROE= .13
* E3 = $3.00 (EPS at end of t=3)
* Industry average P/E = 14.3

Based on the above information, calculate terminal value based on comparables (i.e., the value at t=3) and also estimate the terminal value using the Gordon constant growth model.

The Gordon constant growth model is a procedure for valuing the price of a stock by using predicted dividends and discounting them back to present value. (The idea is that if the value obtained from the DDM is higher than what the shares are currently trading at, then the stock is undervalued.)

Intrinsic Value of a Stock and the Dividend Discount Model

Part I
A company's common stock dividends are anticipated to grow at a constant 5.5% growth rate per year going forward. The company just paid an annual dividend (that is, D-zero) of $3 per share. What's the intrinsic value of the stock based on the following required rates of return?
If the stock is currently selling for $40 per share, is the stock a good buy? Interpret the results and justify your decision.

A company just paid an annual dividend of $1.50 per share. Dividends are anticipated to grow at a rate of 17% per year for the next five years and then reduce down to a growth rate of 8.5% per year forever. The stock's beta is 1.2; the risk-free rate is 4%, and the expected return on the overall stock market is 11%. What's the intrinsic value of the company's common stock?

Part II
Using Walmart (WMT)
