Key Assignment Final Draft 

After engaging in a dialogue with your colleagues on stock valuation, you will now be given an opportunity to apply the principles and concepts that were presented in this Phase. You have been asked to visit credible a Web site that provides detailed information on publicly traded stocks and select one that has at least a 5-year history of paying dividends and 2 of its closest competitors.

To fill up the first table, you will need to gather information needed to calculate the required rate of return for each of the 3 stocks. You will need the risk-free rate that you used in Phase 3, the market return is calculated in Phase 1, and the beta that you should be able to find on the Web site.

 

Company

5-year Risk-Free Rate of Return

Beta (β)

5-Year Return on Top 500 Stocks

Required Rate of Return (CAPM)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To complete the next table, you will need the most recent dividends paid over the past year for each stock, expected growth rate for the stocks, and the required rate of return you calculated in the previous table. You will also need to compare your results with the current value of each stock and determine whether the model suggests that they are over or underpriced.

 

Company

Current Dividend

Projected Growth Rate (next year)

Required Rate of Return (CAPM)

Estimated Stock Price (Gordon Model)

Current Stock Price

Over/Under Priced

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the third table, you will be using the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) along with the average expected earnings per share provided by the Web site. You will also need to compare your results with the current value of each stock to determine whether or not the model suggests that the stocks are over- or underpriced.

 

Company

Estimated Earning 
(next year)

P/E Ratio

Estimated Stock Price (P/E)

Current Stock Price

Over/Under Priced

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After completing the 3 tables, explain your findings and why your calculations coincide with the principles related to bonds that were presented in the phase. Be sure to address the following:

  • Explain the relationship observed between the required rate of return, growth rate, and the dividend paid and the estimated value of the stock using the Gordon model.
  • Explain the value and weaknesses of the Gordon model.
  • Explain the how the price-to-earnings model is used to estimate the value of the stocks.
  • Explain which of the 2 models seemed to be the most accurate in estimating the value of the stocks.
  • Based on the material you learned in this Phase, what would you expect to happen to the value of the stock if the growth rate, dividends, required rate of return, or the estimated earnings per share were to increase or decrease? Be sure to explain each case separately.

Note: You can find information about the top 500 stocks at this Web site.
