DDM, FCFE, FCFF are all forms of DCF DDM discounts dividends. in last year, you have to add the yr div to the TERMINAL VALUE OF FIRM, and discount that combo @ 1.15^ 3 that is it takeway is that a stock price reflects future expectations AND that a BIG ASS CHUNK of a company’s vlaue is in its terminal value, which should freak you out b/c there is no guarantee any company will be around tomorrow look @ ENRON and Parmalat that is it BOOM
