Solution

Find out the values for D1, D2 and D3

D1= 4 (1+0.2) =4.8
D2= 4.8 (1+0.2) =5.76
D3=5.76 (1+0.05) =6.11

What will be the price of stock (P2) at the end of year 2?

P2= 5.76 (1+0.2)/ .1-0.05
P2=138.24

What will be the present value (P0) of stock?

PO= 4.8/(1+.1)1 + 5.76/(1+.1)2 + 6.11/(1+.1)3 + 128.31/(1.1)3
= 110

Should we buy stocks of ABC Corporation at Rs. 150

As the present value of the stock is less then the current selling price so the stock
should not be purchased

PART 1:

D1=4 x (1.2) =4.8

D2=4 x (1.2)2 = 5.76

D3=5.76x (1.06) =6.1056

PART 2:

P2= 6.1056/ (0.10-0.06) = 152.64

PART 3:

Po = D1 [PVF k, 1] + D2 [PVF k, 2] + P2 [PVF k, 2]

Po = 4.8 [PVF k, 1] + 5.76 [PVF k, 2] + 152.64 [PVF k, 2]

Po = 4.8[0.9091] +5.76[0.8264] +152.64[0.8264]

Po = 135.27

PART 4:

We should not buy the stock.
