# What determines G and R in the dividend growth model?

The dividend growth model determines if a stock is overvalued or undervalued assuming that the firm's expected dividends grow at a value g forever, which is subtracted from the required rate of return (RRR) or k.

Besides, what is r in dividend discount model?

r – the estimated cost of equity capital (usually calculated using CAPM. CAPM formula shows the return of a security is equal to the risk-free return plus a risk premium, based on the beta of that security) g – the constant growth rate of the company's dividends for an infinite time.

Furthermore, what are the limitations of the dividend growth model? The other notable limitation of the model is that due to its extreme sensitivity to changes in the growth rate 'g' any miscalculation of g or any incorrect use of g would yield absolutely wrong results. Hence it requires extreme sensitivity to the growth rate which is not necessarily adhered to.

Also to know is, how do you use the dividend growth model?

That formula is:

1. Rate of Return = (Dividend Payment / Stock Price) + Dividend Growth Rate.
2. (\$1.56/45) + .05 = .0846, or 8.46%
3. Stock value = Dividend per share / (Required Rate of Return – Dividend Growth Rate)
4. \$1.56 / (0.0846 – 0.05) = \$45.
5. \$1.56 / (0.10 – 0.05) = \$31.20.

How do you calculate required rate of return?

Calculating RRR using CAPM Subtract the risk-free rate of return from the market rate of return. Take that result and multiply it by the beta of the security. Add the result to the current risk-free rate of return to determine the required rate of return.
