provide investors thus the value of any asset can be stated as follows A A A n CF Value CFI m t 1k1 1k2 1k t11kt This equation shows that the value of any assetireal or nancialiis based on 1 the A cash ows that the asset is expected to generate during its life CFL and 2 the rate of return that investors require to put up their money to purchase the investment asset k 0 dividend discount models DDM7the cash ows received by investors in common stock are called dividends and assuming the rm is a going concern the lifetime associated with these dividends is in nite Thus the valuation of common stock is based on the present value of the expected future dividends I general model D D 00D 120 t Z 1k1 1k2 1k t11kt D V0 where D represents the dividend that is expected to be paid in period t Most investors do not hold a stock for an in nite time period so it appears the DDM given above is not appropriate Consider an investor who purchases a stock with the intention of holding it for 10 years and then selling it to another investor It is obvious that the cash ows this investor will receive include the annual dividend payments plus the price expected in the tenth year Thus the value of the stock to this investor can be written V0 D1 1k1 1k2 1k10 1k10 Notice that the value of the stock for this investor depends on the price of the stock in Year 10 To determine the value of the stock in Year 10 we can apply the DDM as follows X i Doc tglliDt 391k O 101kt D11 12 1k1 I 1k2 D V10 Plugging the equation for V10 into the computation for V0 we end up right back where we startedithe DDM Consequently it does not matter what the investment horizon is at least in theory the general DDM is an appropriate method to determine the value of stock It is important to recognize that valuation is based on the characteristics of the asset eg life and cash ows not the investor eg investment horizonithat is it is the cash ow stream associated with the asset that is important for valuation 0 Application of the DDM Constant normal dividend growthiif dividends grow at a constant rate g which is less than the required return k then the DDM simpli es to the following Normal dividend growth often is defined to be the same as the growth associated with a normal economy73 percent to 5 percent The constant dividend growth model sometimes referred to as the Gordon model can be used to estimate the return required by investorsijust solve for k D1 k g P0 Zero dividend growthiif a firm pays all of its earnings out as dividends then presumably it will experience zero growth because there are no funds retained to invest in growth opportunities When the growth rate associated with a firm is zero the dividends paid each period in the future are equal and g 0 in the constant dividend growth model Consequently the value of a zerogrowth stock can be written D1 D1 Po a T Supemormal nonconstant dividend growthifrrms that have many positive NPV opportunities generally experience higher than normal growth in operations thus dividends often do not grow at a constant rate When this happens the constant dividend growth model cannot be usediat least not until constant growth begins or because g 0 nonconstant growth ends Because nonconstant growth does not end until some future date the constant dividend growth model cannot be applied until that time to determine the value of the stock at that future date Application of the constant dividend growth model at a future period is written as follows D P 1 D2 P 11 P n Dn1 1k1 I1k2 I I1k where P n 1 kn 39 gnorm where gnorm represents the normal or constant growth rate that the dividends reach at some period in the future 0 Application of the DDMiExample of nonconstant growth A company just paid a 1 dividend During the next three years the company is expected to grow at rates equal to 30 percent 20 percent and 10 percent In year 4 and every year thereafter the growth rate will be 4 percent Investors in similar risk investments require a return of 14 percent What is the current market price of the company39s stock According to the situation presented here we have the following information g1 g2 g3 g4 k d0 30

investment horizon of the investor who buys the stock NO If an investor purchased the stock today and then sold it one year later the cash ows received would be the dividend in Year 1 130 and the

PE ratio to make investment decisionsisome investors believe they can earn higher returns by investing in stocks with low PE ratios but often they fail to consider the risk involved with such stocks I
