Using this simple model the implied price per share…for McDonalds is $16.87, computed as follows;…$2.53, that's the dividend, ÷ 0.15,…that's the discount rate, $16.87.…That's one model. Now let's do another model,…The Cost In Dividend Growth model.…The assumption that dividends will be the same amount…each year forever is quite unreasonable,…given that the four years of dividend data we have for…McDonalds show the dividend amount increasing each year.…So in another more realistic dividend based valuation model,…
