## What is the Gordon Growth Model?

## How do you do Gordon growth method?

The formula consists of **taking the DPS in the period by (Required Rate of Return Expected Dividend Growth Rate)**. For example, the value per share in Year is calculated using the following equation: Value Per Share ($) = $5.15 DPS (8.0% Ke 3.0% g) = $103.00.

## What is the Gordon formula?

**highly sensitive to changes in inputs**. For instance if you change the required rate of return (r) or the constant growth rate (g) even a little bit, then there will be a huge change in the resultant terminal value and therefore the value of the stock.

## What is the zero growth model?

**assumes that the dividend always stays the same**, i.e., there is no growth in dividends. Therefore, the stock price would be equal to the annual dividends divided by the required rate of return.

## What are the implications of Gordon’s basic model?

## Why do no payout stocks sell at positive prices?

**Investors speculate on capital returns if the firm is sold**. Investors count on future dividends. A no-dividend firm can still pay off for an investor by ______.

## What are the shortcomings of the dividend models?

**the difficulty of accurate projections, the fact that it does not factor in buybacks, and its fundamental assumption of income only from dividends**.
