    1. Supernormal Growth. Finley Co. is growing quickly.

If the required rate of return is 14 percent and the company just paid a $2.50 dividend, what is the current share price?

    2. Negative Growth. Antiques 'R'Us is a mature manufacturing firm. The company just paid a $10. dividend, but management expects to reduce the payout by 10% per year, indefinitely. If you require a 13 percent return on this stock, what will you pay for a share today?
