The dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 7% a year. The required rate of return on the stock, rs, is 15%. What is the stock's current value per share? Round your answer to two decimal places. ## Dividend Growth Model: The dividend growth model can be used to find the intrinsic value or fair value of a stock that pays regular dividend and has a constant growth in dividends. These stocks usually come from mature industries where companies have limited scope for capital expansion.

• Stock Price (Po) = {eq}D1 / ( K - G ) {/eq}
• Stock Price (Po) = {eq}2.50 / ( 0.15 - 0.07 ) {/eq}
• Stock Price (Po) = {eq}31.25 {/eq}
