What is its value if the previous dividend was D 0 = $125 and investors expect dividends to grow at a constant annual rate of (1) −2%, (2) 0%, (3) 3%, or (4) 5%? b. Using data from part a, what would the Gordon (constant growth) model value be if the required rate of return was 8% and the expected growth rate was (1) 8% or (2) 12%? Are these reasonable results? Explain. c. Is it reasonable to think that a constant growth stock could have g > r s ? Why or why not?
