This homework assignment is worth 100 points.
the following information for questions 1 through 4:
Goodman Industries' and Landry Incorporated's stock prices and dividends,
along with the Market
are shown below. Stock prices are
reported for December 31 of each year, and dividends reflect
paid during the year. The market data
are adjusted to include dividends.
Use the data given to calculate the annual returns for Goodman, Landry, and
the Market Index, and
calculate average annual returns for the two stocks and the index. (Hint: Remember, returns
calculated by subtracting the beginning price from the ending price to get
the capital gain or
adding the dividend to the capital gain or loss, and then dividing the result
by the beginning
price. Assume that dividends are already included
in the index, Also, you cannot
of return for 2008 because you do not have 2007 data.)
Calculate the standard deviations of the returns for Goodman, Landry,
and the Market Index.
Use the sample standard deviation formula given in the chapter, which
corresponds to the
function in Excel.)
3. What dividends do you expect for Goodman
Industries stock over the next 3 years if you expect the
to grow at the rate of 5% per year for the next 3 years? In other words, calculate
D2, and D3. Note that D0 =
4. Assume that Goodman Industries' stock,
currently trading at $27.05, has a required return of 13%.
will use this required return rate to discount dividends. Find the present value of the
stream, that is, calculate the PV of D!, D2, and D3, and then sum these PVs.
