# FIN622 Corporate Finance GDB Fall 2019 Solution & Discussion

Learning Outcome:

After doing this activity, students will be able to understand the relationship of components of Gordon Growth model and how the relationship between these components can affect current stock price.

GDB Statement:

Gordon growth model also referred to as constant growth model or dividend discount model in finance literature has long been used for common and preferred stock valuation.

Po = D1/(r – g) = Do*(1+g)/(r – g)

This model states that current stock price (Po) of any company can be ascertained by a relationship between expected growth rate of dividends (g) and investor’s required rate of return (r).  Being an investor, this should be a major concern that how these two significant factors act as determinants of stock price.

The two graphs show current price of a stock (Po) determined by using different values of (r) and (g) in four different cases:

Q1.Under the Gordon Growth Model, a stock becomes more valuable when its dividend increases, the investor's required rate of return decreases, or the expected dividend growth rate increases. The Gordon Growth Model also implies that a stock price grows at the same rate as dividends.

In graph 1, required rate of return (r) and expected growth rate of dividend (g) have a direct relationship i.e. with the decrease in ‘g’ there is a decrease in ‘r’ as well. Whereas in graph 2, there is an inverse relationship between ‘r’ and ‘g’ i.e. with an increase in growth rate the expected rate of return decreases.
In graph 1,
Due to bearish trend prices of stock in all 4 cases are declining.
The prices are patterned in a downward trend So, is the growth rate (g) and required rate of return (r). Indicating support.
According to the assumption of chartists, investors focus mainly on the terminal prices. So, with falling rates the prices relatably falls down.
In graph 2,
Because of a bullish trend prices of stock in all 4 cases are escalating.
The prices are ceiling upward because of the increasing growth rate (g) and decreasing required rate of return (r). Indicating resistance.
According to Gordon Growth Model a stock is considered valuable when it’s required rate of return (r) decreases or the expected growth rate (g) increases. So logically it is true that P◦ is and will grow.
Thank you!
