. In practice, a common way to value a share of stock when a company pays dividends is to value the dividends over the next five years or so, then find the âterminalâ stock price using a benchmark PE ratio. Suppose a company just paid a dividend of $1.22. The dividends are expected to grow at 17 percent over the next five years. In five years, the estimated payout ratio is 45 percent and the benchmark PE ratio is 24. After five years, the earnings are expected to grow at 7 percent per year. The required return is 13 percent.Required:What are the projected dividends for each of the next five years? (Do not round intermediate calculations.
