 Last Year Dividend Growth Rate of Dividends Selling Price of Stock Floatation Costs Cost of Common Equity Stock Q \$4.89 1% \$35.37 \$3.01 ?

Let us assume

G: Growth Rate of Dividends

D: Next year's Dividend

S: Selling price of stock

K: Cost of Common Equity

As we know that the next year dividend will be = (G/100)*(Present Dividend)+(Present Dividend)=1.01*\$4.89

According to Gordon Model:

K = (D/S)+G = (1.01*\$4.89/\$35.37)+.01 =0.1354

Hence K = .1354 * 100% = 13.54%
