#6

Assume that the average firm in your

company's industry is expected to grow at a constant rate of 6% and

that its dividend yield is 8%. Your company is about as risky as the

average firm in the industry, but it has just successfully completed

some R&D work that leads you to expect that its earnings and

dividends will grow at a rate of 50% [D1 = D0(1 + g) = D0(1.50)] this

year and 20% the following year, after which growth should return to

the 6% industry average. If the last dividend paid (D0) was $2.25,

what is the value per share of your firm's stock? Round your answer

to the nearest cent. Do not round your intermediate computations.(NON

CONSTANT GROWTH VALUATION)
