Hi,

Please can someone explain why the Answer in the following Q is discounting the premium even though the question already says the “PV of continuing RI is $7.00” - surely that means PV (i.e. value NOW!) and not the Value at Yr 5??

Red Shoes’s recent financial statements reported a book value of $11.00 per share; its required rate of return is 9%. Analyst Tony Giancola, CFA, wants to calculate the company’s intrinsic value using a multistage residual income with a high-growth RI for the next 5 years. Giancola creates the following estimates:

- PV of interim high-growth RI for the next 5 years is $ 2.90
- At the end of year 5, the PV of continuing RI is $7.00
- Estimated Book Value in 5 years is $14.00 Which of the following is
*closest to*the current intrinsic value of Red Shoes?**A)**$20.90.**B)**$9.90.**C)**$18.45. Answer: - Applying the multistage residual income model: V
_{0}= B_{0}+ PV of interim high-growth RI + PV of continuing RI = 11.00 + 2.90 + [(7.00) / (1.09)^{5}] = $18.45
