Dividend growth model

^
Value of a stock is the present value of the
future dividends expected to be generated by
the stock.

Constant growth stock

A stock whose dividends are expected to
grow forever at a constant rate, g.
D1 = D0 (1+g)1
D2 = D0 (1+g)2
Dt = D0 (1+g)t
8-4
Constant growth stock

If g is constant, the dividend growth formula
converges to:
^
P0 
D 0 (1  g)
rs - g

D1
rs - g
8-5
What happens if g > rs?


If g > rs, the constant growth formula
leads to a negative stock price, which
does not make sense.
The constant growth model can only be
used if:


rs > g
g is expected to be constant forever
8-6
If rRF = 7%, rM = 12%, and β = 1.2,
what is the required rate of return on
the firm’s stock?


Use the SML to calculate the required
rate of return (ks):
rs = rRF + (rM – rRF)β
= 7% + (12% - 7%)1.2
= 13%
D0 = \$2 and g is a constant 6%,

What would the expected price
today be, if g = -5%?, if g=0?


When g=-5% D1=1.9, P=1.9/(13%+5%)=10.56
When g=0, The dividend stream would be a
perpetuity.

What is the expected market price
of the stock, one year from now?

D1 will have been paid out already. So,
P1 is the present value (as of year 1) of
D2, D3, D4, etc.

Dividend Yield and Capital
Gain




P0=D1/(r-g)
k=(D1/P0)+g
Total return=dividend yield + Capital
gain
g is capital gain for constant growth
stock
8-14
What is the expected dividend yield,
capital gains yield, and total return
during the first year?

Dividend yield
= D1 / P0 = \$2.12 / \$30.29 = 7.0%

Capital gains yield
= (P1 – P0) / P0
= (\$32.10 - \$30.29) / \$30.29 = 6.0%

Total return (rs)
= Dividend Yield + Capital Gains Yield
= 7.0% + 6.0% = 13.0%
8-15
Supernormal growth:
What if g = 30% for 3 years before
achieving long-run growth of 6%?


Can no longer use just the constant growth
model to find stock value.
However, the growth does become
constant after 3 years.

Preferred stock



Hybrid security
Like bonds, preferred stockholders
receive a fixed dividend that must be
paid before dividends are paid to
common stockholders.
However, companies can omit
preferred dividend payments without
fear of pushing the firm into
bankruptcy.
8-19
A preferred stock has an annual dividend
of \$5, what should the preferred stock
price be if discount rate is 10%?
Vp = D / rp
\$50 = \$5 / 10%
