Jand, Inc., currently pays a dividend of $1.22, which is expected to grow indefinitely at 5%. If the current value of Jand’s shares based on the constant-growth dividend discount model is $32.03, what is the required rate of return? (Do not round intermediate calculations.

Answers

9%

Explanation:

The required rate of return is basically how much an investor is expecting in return for his investment.

The formula for price of stock is =

P = Do(1+g)/rs - g

P = price of stock

Do = dividend

g = growth

rs = required rate of return

We need to find out rs, therefore,

32.03 = 1.22(1+5%)/rs- 5% = 9%
