1.) Consider the following information .How many shares do you hold today if you bought 1,000 shares of this stock at the beginning of 1985?

1986-10 percent stock dividend (X 1.1)
1987-10 percent stock dividend (X 1.1)
1988-25 percent stock dividend (X 1.25)
1989-100 percent stock dividend (X 2)
1994-2 for 1 stock split (X 2)
1994-2 for 1 stock split (X 2)
2007-100 percent stock dividend (X 2)

1000 x 1.1 x 1.1 x 1.25 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 24,200

2.) Ten years ago a stock paid a \$0.30 dividend. Since then it has split 2 for 1 twice. The current dividend is \$ 0.16.If you have a required rate of return of 14 percent, what is the most you can pay for this stock?

Calculate g:

First you owned 1 share and now you have 4. Current dividends on an adjusted basis are therefore \$0.16 x 4 = \$0.64, and they “grew” 7.87%:

.30(1 + g)10 = .64  g = (.64/.30).1 – 1 = 7.87%
Pt = Div(t+1)/(r-g) = .16(1.0787)/(.14 - .0787) = \$2.82...
