First, Finance is not my area.

That said, I would think that if someone expects a 14% rate of return, either in dividends or price per share, then 1.14*76 = 86.64 with no dividends and 86.64-5. = 81.64 with a \$5 dividend. The growth rate = 1- 81.64/76 = 7.4%

2) assuming that there is no expected growth in the stock price, and I expect to sell after the 3rd dividend payment. Dividends 1,2, and 3 years from now are 19, 25, and 31. Deflate each of these by 15% per year. X=15/1.15 + 25/(1.15^2) + 31/(1.15)^3 = 55.81
