It is a model for determining the intrinsic value of a stock, based on a future series of dividends that grow at a constant rate. Given a dividend per share that is payable in one year, and the assumption that the dividend grows at a constant rate in perpetuity, the model solves for the present value of the infinite series of future dividends. Stock Value = D / Rs - GD = Expected dividend per share one year from nowRs = Required rate of return for equity investorG = Growth rate in dividends (in perpetuity) Because the model simplistically assumes a constant growth rate, it is generally only used for mature companies (or broad market indices) with low to moderate growth rates.http://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/gordongrowthmodel.asp#ixzz2Ch0xY6vXMy understanding of the constant growth model is that it would be appropriate for mature companies with low to moderate growth rates.
