Estimating Stock Value Using Dividend Discount Model with Constant Perpetuity

Kellogg pays \$2.40 in annual per share dividends to its common stockholders, and its recent stock price was \$82.50. Assume that Kellogg’<a title="s" href="m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){">s cost of equity capital is 5.0%.

1. Estimate Kellogg’<a title="s" href="m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){">s stock price using the dividend discount model with constant perpetuity.

b. Compare the estimate obtained in part a with Kellogg’<a title="s" href="m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){">s \$82.50 price. What does the difference between these amounts imply about Kellogg’<a title="s" href="m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){">s future growth?

The estimated price is substantially lower than its recent market price of \$82.50. This means that the market participants expect Kellogg to exhibit positive future growth and to increase its dividend per share beyond the current \$2.40.
