    b. Calculate the per-share value of the equity if Quantum were to maintain this probability in the future and if residual earnings were to grow at the 2007 sales growth rate.

    c. Calculate the expected rate of return on buying Quantum's stock at $42.68 under the scenario in part b. Is $42.68 cheap or expensive?
