You may round each dividend estimate to the nearest penny. **(10 points)**

**11** B:Now, let’s assume that the dividend growth reverts back to a L-T sustainable growth rate = 6% after Year 5, that is from Year 6 to infinity. Estimate is D_{6} and P_{5}.

**(5 points)**

**12.** C:Use the Non-constant growth DDM from the Stock Video Lecture (at 17:20) to estimate the current value of MSFT using the dividend information you found in (11) & (12) above; assume a L-T sustainable growth rate of g = 6% after Year 5; and the required rate of return found in (8).
