Assignment Question(s):

Q1: Alaman Corp. just paid a dividend of $2.15 yesterday. The company is expected to grow
at a steady rate of 5 percent for the foreseeable future. If investors in stocks of companies like
Alaman require a rate of return of 15 percent, what should be the market price of Alaman's
stock?
Answer
To calculate what should Alaman's market stock price, Gordon's Growth Model is used, and
it states as follows;
𝐷1

Po = {πΎπ‘’βˆ’π‘”}
Where; Po is the estimated price of the stock.
D1 is the required dividend.
Ke is the required cost of capital.
g is growth rate of the given dividends.
Therefore, for Alaman Corp. applying the model equation for the first year, we get;
D1 = Do * (1+g) = $2.15 * (1+0.05) = 2.26 (2dp).
Ke = 15% and g = 5%
Thus; Po =

2.26
{15%βˆ’5%}

=

a. What is the payback period for this new center?
The payback period refers to the time required to recover the initial investment fully.
For irregular periods, it is calculated using the formula below (Jan, 2019).
π‘ƒπ‘Žπ‘¦π‘π‘Žπ‘π‘˜ π‘ƒπ‘’π‘Ÿπ‘–π‘œπ‘‘ = 𝐴 +

A = the year last negative cash flow, B = the absolute value/figure at the end of year A, and C
= the total cash flow in the period after period A.
For the Carrefour cumulative net operating cash flows will be as follows.
