Question;1. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. The constant growth model takes into consideration the capital gains investors expect to earn on a stock. b. Two firms with the same expected dividend and growth rates must also have the same stock price. c. It is appropriate to use the constant growth model to estimate a stock's value even if its growth rate is never expected to become constant. d. If a stock has a required rate of return rs = 12%, and if its dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 5%, this implies that the stock?s dividend yield is also 5%. e. The price of a stock is the present value of all expected future dividends, discounted at the dividend growth rate.2. Stocks A and B have the following data. Assuming the stock market is efficient and the stocks are in equilibrium, which of the following statements is CORRECT? A B Price $25 $25 Expected growth (constant) 10% 5% Required return 15% 15% a. Stock A's expected dividend at t = 1 is only half that of Stock B. b. Stock A has a higher dividend yield than Stock B. c. Currently the two stocks have the same price, but over time Stock B's price will pass that of A. d. Since Stock A?s growth rate is twice that of Stock B, Stock A?s future dividends will always be twice as high as Stock B?s. e. The two stocks should not sell at the same price. If their prices are equal, then disequilibrium must exist. 3. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. A major disadvantage of financing with preferred stock is that preferred stockholders typically have supernormal voting rights. b. Preferred stock is normally expected to provide steadier, more reliable income to investors than the same firm?s common stock, and, as a result, the expected after-tax yield on the preferred is lower than the after-tax expected return on the common stock. c. The preemptive right is a provision in all corporate charters that gives preferred stockholders the right to purchase (on a pro rata basis) new issues of preferred stock. d. One of the disadvantages to a corporation of owning preferred stock is that 70% of the dividends received represent taxable income to the corporate recipient, whereas interest income earned on bonds would be tax free.e. One of the advantages to financing with preferred stock is that 70% of the dividends paid out are tax deductible to the issuer.4. Church Inc. is presently enjoying relatively high growth because of a surge in the demand for its new product. Management expects earnings and dividends to grow at a rate of 25% for the next 4 years, after which competition will probably reduce the growth rate in earnings and dividends to zero, i.e., g = 0. The company?s last dividend, D0, was $1.25, its beta is 1.20, the market risk premium is 5.50%, and the risk-free rate is 3.00%. What is the current price of the common stock? a. $26.77 b. $27.89 c. $29.05 d. $30.21 e. $31.425. a. 11.84% b. 12.21%c. 12.58%d. 12.97%e. 13.36%Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 41*1.10 1*1.1^2 1*1.1^3 1*1.1^3 *1.05To find the final value of the growth after year 4 we use the following equation: PV (n-1) = Div1/(Rs-Growth)
