									Chapter 7 – Equity Markets and Stock Valuation
The price of any financial instrument is the present value of the future cash flows.

Preferred Stock
There is a 6 percent preferred share outstanding. If investors have a required return of 7 percent
on this stock, what is the price?

    P0 =
           R




Common stock
Assumption: The dividends grow at a constant rate forever. The following equation goes by
many names. Here are a few:

    Gordon Growth Model
    Discounted Dividend Model
    Dividend Model

            D1   D (1  g)
    P0         = 0

Suppose a stock will pay a dividend of $2.50 next year and the dividends will grow at 6 percent
forever. If the required return is 13 percent, what is the price per share today?

Growing Perpetuities
You want to buy a song catalog. The royalties next year will be $1 million, and are expected to
decrease by 8 percent per year indefinitely. If you want a 13 percent return, what is the most you
should pay for the catalog?




Where does g come from?




Required Return
We can solve the Gordon Growth Model for R, the required return.
