Assume you expect to sell the stock for $60 a year from now. If you require a 14% return on this stock, how much would you be willing to pay for it today?;Currently, the dividend-payout ratio (D/E) for the aggregate market is 50 percent, the required return (k) is 8 percent, and the expected growth rate for dividends (g) is 3 percent.;Compute the current earnings multiplier;You expect the D/E ratio to decline to 40 percent, but you assume there will be no other changes. What will be the P/E?;Starting with the initial conditions, you expect the dividend-payout ratio to be constant, the rate of inflation to increase by 3 percent, and the growth rate to increase by 2 percent. Compute the expected P/E.;Starting with the initial conditions, you expect the dividend-payout ratio to be constant, the rate of inflation to decline by 3 percent, and the growth rate to decline by 1 percent.
