Common stock value: All growth models You are evaluating the potential purchase

of a small business currently generating $42,500 of after-tax cash flow

(D0 = $42,500). On the basis of a review of similar-risk investment opportunities,

you must earn an 18% rate of return on the proposed purchase. Because you are relatively

uncertain about future cash flows, you decide to estimate the firm’s value using

several possible assumptions about the growth rate of cash flows.

- What is the firm’s value if cash flows are expected to grow at an annual rate of

0% from now to infinity?

- What is the firm’s value if cash flows are expected to grow at a constant annual

rate of 7% from now to infinity?

- What is the firm’s value if cash flows are expected to grow at an annual rate of

12% for the first 2 years, followed by a constant annual rate of 7% from year 3

to infinity?
