Present Value

Year Dividend Interest Factor Present Value
t Dt = 5.00(1 + .07)t PVIF.12,t Dt x PVIF.12,t

\$5.35

PV (First 6-Years' Dividends) \$25.651

Value of Stock at End of Year 6:

P6 = D7/(ke - g2) g2 = .00

D7 = D6(1 + g2) = 7.504(1 + .00) = \$7.504

P6 = 7.504/(.12 - .00) = \$62.533
Present Value of P6:

PV(P6) = P6/(1 + ke)6 = 62.533/(1 + .12)6 = 62.533 x PVIF.12,6

= 62.533 X .507 = \$31.704

Value of Common Stock (Po):

Po = PV (First 6-Years' Dividends) + PV(P6)

= 25.651 + 31.704 = \$57.36 (tables)
