Submit your assignment using the assignment link in the course shell. This homework assignment is worth 100 points. Use the following information for questions 1 through 4: The Goodman Industries' and Landry Incorporated's stock prices and dividends, along with the Market Index, are shown below. Stock prices are reported for December 31 of each year, and dividends reflect those paid during the year. The market data are adjusted to include dividends. Goodman Industries Landry Incorporated Market Index Year Stock Price Dividend Stock Price Dividend Includes Divi- dends 2013 \$25.88 \$1.73 \$73.13 \$4.50 17.49 5.97 2012 22.13 1.59 78.45 4.35 13.17 8.55 2011 24.75 1.50 73.13 4.13 13.01 9.97 2010 16.13 1.43 85.88 3.75 9.65 1.05 2009 17.06 1.35 90.00 3.38 8.40 3.42 2008 11.44 1.28 83.63 3.00 7.05 8.96 1. Use the data given to calculate the annual returns for Goodman, Landry, and the Market Index, and then calculate average annual returns for the two stocks and the index. (Hint: Remember, returns are calculated by subtracting the beginning price from the ending price to get the capital gain or loss, 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 calculate the rate of return for 2008 because you do not have 2007 data.)
2. Calculate the standard deviations of the returns for Goodman, Landry, and the Market Index. (Hint: Use the sample standard deviation formula given in the chapter, which corresponds to the STDEV function in Excel.)
3. What dividends do you expect for Goodman Industries stock over the next 3 years if you expect the dividend to grow at the rate of 5% per year for the next 3 years? In other words, calculate D1, D2, and D3. Note that D0 =
\$1.50
4. Assume that Goodman Industries' stock, currently trading at \$27.05, has a required return of 13%. You will use this required return rate to discount dividends. Find the present value of the dividend stream, that is, calculate the PV of D!, D2, and D3, and then sum these PVs.
