Hooks Athletics, Inc., has outstanding a preferred stock with a par value of $30 that pays a dividend of $2.50. The preferred stock is redeemable at the option of the stockholder in 10 years at a price equal to $30. The stock may be called for redemption by the company in 15 years at the price of $32.50. (Any stock that is not redeemed at the end of 10 years can be expected to be called by the comany in 15 years). If you know that investors require a 15 percent pretax rate of return on this preferred stock, what is the current market value of this preferred stock?
