A magazine gave the following estimates for a firm:
Dividend per share at date zero= $3.10
Expected Dividend per share in three years from zero= $4.10
Retention rate in three years from zero= 60%
ROE in three years from zero= 15%
The stock was selling for $49. Estimate the expected returns from purchasing at $49 and receiving the dividend stream projected by the magazine.
Also, the risk-free rate was 11.5%. Using a market risk premium of 6%, what can I conclude about the purchase of the company's shares?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com September 26, 2018, 6:38 am ad1c9bdddf - https://brainmass.com/business/dividends-stock-repurchase-and-policy/estimate-expected-returns-16363

The required rate of return is k = Rf+ Beta*Rm=11.5+1.15*6= 18.4%
The growth ratio is g = Retention rate * ROE = 60%*15% =9% in 3 years
Since we don't know how much can we sell the bond 3 years ...
