Stock price

1. Prock Petroleum's stock has a required return of 13%, and the stock sells for $50 per share. The firm just paid a dividend of $1.00, and the dividend is expected to grow by 30% per year for the next 4 years, so D4 = $1.00(1.30)4 = $2.8561. After t = 4, the dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of X% per year forever. What is the stock's expected constant growth rate after t = 4, i.e., what is X?

2 Sorenson Corp.'s expected year-end dividend is D1 = $1.50, its required return is rS = 12.00%, its dividend yield is 8.00%, and its growth rate is expected to be constant in the future. What is Sorenson's expected stock price in 7 years, i.e., what is P7?

3. You have been assigned the task of using the free cash flow model to estimate Petry Corporation's intrinsic value. Petry's WACC is 10.00%, its end-of-year free cash flow (FCF) is expected to be $150.0 million, the FCFs are expected to grow at a constant rate of 6.00% a year in the future, the company has $200 million of long-term debt plus preferred stock, and it has 50 million shares of common stock outstanding. What is Petry's estimated intrinsic value per share of common stock?

Current share price is the discounted value of all the dividends

r= 13%

Year Dividend growth rate Dividend
0 D0 $1.000
1 D1 30% $1.3000 =( 1 + 30.% ) x $1.
2 D2 30% $1.6900 =( 1 + 30.% ) x $1.3
3 D3 30% $2.1970 =( 1 + 30.% ) x $1.69
4 D4 30% $2.8561 =( 1 + 30.% ) x $2.197

Step 1: Find the present value of dividends in years 1-4

Year =PV factor @ 13.% Discounted value
1 D1= $1.3000 0.8850 $1.1505 =0.885 x 1.3
2 D2= $1.6900 0.7831 $1.3234 =0.7831 x 1.69
3 D3= $2.1970 0.6931 $1.5227 =0.6931 x 2.197
4 D4= $2.8561 0.6133 $1.7516 =0.6133 x 2.8561
Total= $5.7482

Therefore present value of dividends in years 1-4= $5.7482

Current share price= $50.00

Therefore present value of ...
