what was the calculation for the growth rate?
Expert:  Linda_us replied 3 years ago.

I used the RATE function in excel =RATE(NPER,PMT,PV,-FV)

=RATE(5,0,2.5,-4) = 9.86%

Five year ago dividend would be 5 x 50% = 2.5 , current dividend is 4 so putting these value in rate function we can get growth rate of 9.86%

We can also solve is by following

FV = PV*(1+r)^NPER

4 = 2.5*(1+r)^5

Solving for r = .0986 or 9.86%
