Stock Valuation using CAPM and DVM

**Input the dividend growth rate in decimal form, not percentages
(for example, 4% growth rate would be input as ".04" (omit quotes). Click
show answer after you have input the dividend amount, dividend growth rate,
and the stock's beta. You will be given the required return (from CAPM)
first. Click "ok" in the alert box to obtain the results of the dividend
valuation model. This model works best with utilities and other relatively
"mature" industries where dividends, rather than capital gains, represent
the primary reward to shareholders. Note that this model does not
provide realistic results for cases where the dividend growth rate exceeds
the required return.**
