cgeek 2.1 / ( 7% + 4%) = 19.09
brujita94 This should be the value of a prefered stock, not common??
ange It is still a common stock, but the growth rate of dividend is 0%. So instead of D1/(k-g) you have D1/k = 2.1/11% = 19.09
accounting even the Gordon DDM works with g=0
Lavay The key point here is to know that you add both the rf + rp to get the capitalization rate.
jonan203 FYI, preferreds typically have a $25 par value.
houstcarr this also shows how dividend discount models apply absolutely no value to common stock having voting rights, whereas preferred does not. this is not the case in reality
