I know the PVGO = Market price - (Dividend/Required Return)

In this problem there is no dividend and I’m just given earnings. I guess we are to assume that all earnings are paid as dividends? Kind of nit picky but I’m curious.

Tri-coat Paints has a current market value of $41 per share with a earnings of $3.64. What is the present value of its growth opportunities (PVGO) if the required return is 9%?

A)

$3.92.

B)

$0.56.

C)

$1.27.

**Explanation**

The PVGO is $0.56:

*PVGO* = $41 – ($3.64 / 0.09) = $0.56
