Exercises for lecture 2
1. As winner of a breakfast cereal competition, you can choose
    one of the following prizes:
p a. $100,000 now.
p b. $180,000 at the end of five years.
p c. $11,400 a year forever.
p d. $19,000 for each of 10 years.
p e. $6,500 next year and increasing thereafter by 5 percent a
    year forever.
If the interest rate is 12 percent, which is the most valuable prize?
a. PV = $100,000
b. PV = $180,000/(1+0.12)5 = $102,137
c. A perpetuity: PV = $11,400/0.12 = $95,000 (a perpetuity)
d. An annuity: PV = $19,000 ´ [Annuity factor, 12%, t = 10]
                  = $19,000 ´ 5.650 = $107,350
e. A growing perpetuity:
PV = $6,500/(0.12 - 0.05) = $92,857

Prize (d) is the winner with the highest present value
Question 2
You are considering the purchase of an apartment complex that will generate a
  net cash flow of $400,000 per year. You normally demand a 10 percent rate
  of return on such investments. Future cash flows are expected to grow with
  inflation at 4 percent per year. How much would you be willing to pay for
  the complex if it:
p a. Will produce cash flows forever?
p b. Will have to be torn down in 20 years? Assume that the site will be
  worth $5 million at that time net of demolition costs. (The $5 million
  includes 20 years’ inflation.)

Now calculate the real discount rate corresponding to the 10 percent nominal
Redo the calculations for parts (a) and (b) using real cash flows. (Your
  answers should not change.)
Solution to question 2
With the nominal cash flows:
a. Given the inflation rate of 4%, the cash flow in 1 year will be $416,000 and:
    PV = $416,000/(0.10 - 0.04) = $6,933,333

b. The nominal cash flows are growing annuity for 20 years, with an additional
    payment of $5 million at year 20:
Second, with real cash flows:
The real rate (r) is (1 + 0.10) = (1 + r) ´ (1.04) Þ r = 0.0577 = 5.77%
a.  PV = $400,000/(0.0577) = $6,932,409

b.   Now, the real cash flows are $400,000 per year for 20 years and $5
     million (nominal) in 20 years. In real terms, the $5 million dollar
     payment is:
     $5,000,000/(1.04)20 = $2,281,935
     Thus, the present value of the project is:

p   Suppose that a one-year, risk-free, zero-coupon bond with a
    $100,000 face value has an initial price of $96,618.36. The
    cash flows would be:

    n   The bond pays no “interest” and your compensation is the
        difference between the initial price and the face value.

p   There is an inverse relationship between interest rates and
    bond prices.
    n   As interest rates and bond yields rise, bond prices fall.
    n   As interest rates and bond yields fall, bond prices rise
p   The sensitivity of a bond’s price to changes in interest rates is
    measured by the bond’s duration.
    n   Bonds with high durations are highly sensitive to interest
        rate changes.

How to value common stocks
p   The discounted-cash-flow (DCF) formula for the present value
    of a stock is the same as that of any other asset

p   What do shareholders receive from the company?
    n A stream of dividends
    n PV(stock) = PV(expected future dividends)
Common stocks terminology
p   Common stock
    n   Ownership shares in a publicly held corporation
p   Secondary market
    n   Market in which already issued securities are traded by
p   Dividend
    n   Periodic cash distribution from the firm to the shareholders
p   P/E Ratio
    n   Price per share divided by earnings per share
Common stocks terminology
p   Book value
    n   Net worth of the firm according to the balance sheet

p   Liquidation value
    n   Net proceeds that would be realized by selling the firm’s
        assets and paying off its creditors
How to value common stocks
p   What determines today’s price?
     n   The cash payoff to owners of common stocks comes in two forms
          p   1) cash dividends 2) capital gains
     n   The current price of a share is P0;the expected price at the end of a year is P1;
         the expected dividend per share is DIV1

     Expected return= r =

     This expected return is often called the market capitalization rate, which
       is percentage yield that an investor forecasts from a specific investment over a
         set period of time

     If the P0=100, Div1=5 and P1=110, we have r=15%
How to value common stocks
p   You can also predict today’s price like this


p   How do we decide on r?
     n All securities in an equivalent risk class are priced to offer
       the same expected return

    n   P0=(5+100)/(1+0.15)=100

    What if today’s price is higher (lower) than 100?

p   How far can we look if we continue working like this?

p   As time goes by, the dividend stream accounts for an
    increasing proportion of present value. If the horizon is
    infinite, we have
Constant growth model (Gordon growth
p   Suppose the expected dividends grow at a constant rate

p   What does that look like?
    n   Like a growing perpetuity

    n   Constant-growth DCF formula P0 =

p   Cautions about using this formula: g must be less than r; g
    cannot be abnormally high forever

Edison Inc plans to pay $2.36 per share in dividends in the
coming year. If the cost of capital is 7.5% and dividends are
expected to grow by 1.5% per year in the future, what is the
value of its stock?
Constant dividend growth
p   Can we use this growing perpetuity formula to derive r, the
    discount rate (market capitalization rate)?

     r= DIV1/P0+g

    There are two parts in the formula: Dividend yield (DIV1/P0)
      and the expected rate of growth in dividends (g)

p   A Simple Model of Growth
    n   Assuming the number of shares outstanding is constant, the
        firm can do two things to increase its dividend:
         p   Increase its earnings (net income)
         p   Increase its dividend payout rate

    n   A firm can do one of two things with its earnings:
         p   It can pay them out to investors.
         p   It can retain and reinvest them.

    n   If the firm keeps its retention rate constant, then
        the growth rate in dividends will equal the growth rate
        of earnings.

p   Profitable Growth
    n   If a firm wants to increase its share price, should it cut its
        dividend and invest more, or should it cut investment and
        increase its dividend?
         p   The answer will depend on the profitability of the
             firm’s investments.
               § Cutting the firm’s dividend to increase investment will raise the stock
                 price if, and only if, the new investments have a positive NPV.

    it is expected to pay a dividend of $5 in the first year. Also, the
    constant growth rate of the dividend is 10%
Calculate the present value of growth
opportunities 3)

Our company forecasts to pay a $8.33 dividend next year, which represents
  100% of its earnings. This will provide investors with a 15% expected
  return. Instead, we decide to plow back 40% of the earnings at the firm’s
  current return on equity of 25%. What is the value of the stock before and
  after the plowback decision?

Calculate the present value of growth
opportunities 4)
If the company did not plowback some earnings, the stock
    price would remain at $55.56. With the plowback, the price
    rose to $100.00.

  The difference between these two numbers) is called the
  Present Value of Growth Opportunities (PVGO).
Pigeon express currently plows back 40 percent of its earnings and earns a return of 20
    percent on this investment. The dividend yield on the stock is 4 percent.
a. Assuming that Pigeon express can continue to plow back this proportion of earnings
    and earn a 20 percent return on the investment, how rapidly will earnings and
    dividends grow? What is the expected return on Pigeon express stock?
b. Suppose that management suddenly announces that future investment
opportunities have dried up. Now Pigeon express intends to pay out all its earnings.
How will the stock price change?
c. Suppose that management simply announces that the expected return on new
investment would in the future be the same as the market capitalization rate. Now
what is Pigeon express’ stock price?
a. g = plowback ratio ´ ROE=0.40 ´ 0.20=8%
Using r = dividend yield + growth rate = 0.04 + 0.08 = 0.12 = 12.0%

b. Since the dividend yield = 4%, we have DIV1/P0 = 0.04 and DIV1=0.04*P0
   A plowback ratio of 0.4 implies a payout ratio of 0.6, and we have
                       DIV1/EPS1 = 0.6
                       DIV1 = 0.6 ´ EPS1
    Equating these two expressions for DIV1 gives a relationship between price and earnings per
                       0.04 ´ P0 = 0.6 ´ EPS1
                       EPS1/P0 = 0.066
            Also, we know that:

With (EPS1/P0) = 0.066 and r = 0.12, the ratio of the present value of growth opportunities to price
   is 34.4 percent. Thus, if there are suddenly no future investment opportunities, the stock price
   will decrease by 44.4 percent.
