The required rate of return on the stock, r(s), is 15%. What is the value per share of Boehm’s stock? 1.50 / (0.15 – 0.07) = \$18.75

7-4 Preferred Stock Valuation
Nick’s Enchiladas Incorporated has preferred stock outstanding that pays a dividend of \$5 at the end of each year. The preferred sells for \$50 a share. What is the stock’s required rate of return? \$5 / \$50 = 10%

7-5 Non-constant Growth Valuation
A company currently pays a dividend of \$2 per (D0= \$2). It is estimated that the company's dividend will grow at a rate of 20% per year for the next 2 years, then at a constant rate of 7% thereafter. The company's stock has a beta of 1.2, the risk free rate is 7.5%, and the market risk is 4%. What is your estimate of the stock's current price? 7.5% + (4%) 1.2 = 12.3%

D0 = \$2.00
D1 = \$2.00(1.20) = \$2.4
D2 = \$2.00(1.20)^2 = \$2.88
D3 = \$2.88(1.07) = \$3.08
PVDiv = \$2.40/(1.123) + \$2.88/(1.123)2
\$2.14 + \$2.28 = \$4.42
P2 = D3/(rs – g) = \$3.08/ (0.123 – 0.07) = \$58.11
PV = \$58.11/ (1.123)^2 = \$46.08
P0 = \$4.42 + \$46.08 = \$50.50
