1. Assume Gillette Corporation will pay an annual dividend of $0.64 one year from now. Analysts expect

this dividend to grow at 11.2% per year thereafter until the fifth year. After then, growth will level

Gillette stock if the firm's equity cost of capital is 8.5%?

The value of Gilletee's stock is $____ round to the nearest cents

2. Anle Corporation has a current stock price of $24.04, is expected to pay a dividend of $0.90 in one year, and

A. What is Anle's equity cost of capital?

B. How much of Anle's equity cost of capital is expected to be satisfied by dividend yield and how much capital gain?

The portions of Anle's equity cost of capital is that expected to be satisfied by dividend yield is %____ (round to two decimals places)
