In this chapter, we described the various factors that influence stock prices and the approaches that analysts use to estimate a stock’s intrinsic value. By comparing these intrinsic value estimates to the current price, an investor can assess whether it makes sense to buy or sell a particular stock. Stocks trading at a price far below their estimated intrinsic values may be good candidates for purchase, whereas stocks trading at prices far in excess of their intrinsic value may be good stocks to avoid or sell Although estimating a stock's intrinsic value is a complex exercise that requires reliable data and good judgment, we can use the Internet to find financial data in order to arrive at a quick "back-of-the- envelope" calculation of intrinsic value.

6. In the text, we discussed using the discounted dividend model to estimate a stock's intrinsic value. To keep things as simple as possible, let's assume at first that XOM’s dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 5% annually over time. So, g = 5%. If so, the intrinsic value equals Dt/(rs – g), where D1, is the expected annual dividend 1 year from now, r is the stock’s required rate of return, and g is the dividend’s constant growth rate. Go back to the summary (overview) screen and find XOM's current dividend. Multiply this dividend by 1 + g to arrive at an estimate of D1.

To calculate: The amount of next year dividend per share.



It refers to the return over shares that is provided to the shareholders as a part of their earnings on the shares that they have invested in a company. It is that part of the total earnings that the company distributes among its shareholders.


Given information:

Dividend per share of the company provided current year is $3.06 per share. Growth rate of dividend per share of the company is 5%.

The formula to calculate the dividend per share for next year is,



  • D1 is the dividend per share for the next year.
