Hi there,

Don't forget the other answer I gave you at the bottom of this thread: http://finance.justanswer.com/questions/172s5-pretax-cost-debt-firm-35-tax

Now this one...

Remember that:
PV = FV/(1+r)^t

Add up the costs and the PV of the returns:

-100000 + 50000/(1+0.14)^1 + 50000/(1+0.14)^2 + 50000/(1+0.14)^3

= 16081.60

Let me know if you have any questions,

What would you estimate to be the required rate of return for equity investors if a stock sells for \$40 and will pay a \$4.40 dividend that is expected to grow at a constant rate of 5%?
Expert:  Scott replied 9 years ago.
Hi there,

I'm assuming that the 4.40 is the next dividend.

The formula for this is:
Value = Next Dividend / (Required Return - Dividend Growth)

Plug in what we know:
40 = 4.4 / (r - 0.05)

Multiply:
40(r-0.05) = 4.4

Divide by 40:

r-0.05 = 0.11
