FINANCE-The board of directors of API, a relatively new electronics manufacturer

The board of directors of API, a relatively new electronics
manufacturer, has decided to beginning paying a common stock dividend to
increase the attractiveness of the stock in the free market. The board plans to
pay $3.00 per share in the coming year (i.e., next year) and anticipates that
its future dividends will increase at an annual rate consistent with that
experienced over the period from 2009 – 2012 (see below). The company currently
has a beta of 1.1, the rate of return for the market is expected to be 10% and
the risk-free rate is currently 4%. Given this scenario, what is the current
value of API’s common stock? If the current market price is $40.00 per share,
should you purchase this stock. Briefly, explain your answer. (HINT:
This problem requires a three-part calculation to solve it). USE MS EXCEL TO

Year Dividend
2012 $2.81
