The company is Apple Inc. 
In your paper, address the following five parts in a Word document:
Part 1: Dividend Analysis (two to three paragraphs):
Create a table that illustrates the annual dividends per share paid by your selected company over the past 8 years. If the company has not paid dividends for 8 years, include as many years as available.
Calculate the growth in annual dividends per share each year and include this annual growth rate in your table.
Calculate the average dividend growth rate over the following periods: 
the most recent 8 years, 
the most recent 5 years, and
the most recent 3 years.
Summarize the trend in the dividend growth rates.
Have the dividend growth rates increased or decreased? By how much? Has the increase or decrease been steady or varied from year to year?
Determine two distinct estimates of the future dividend growth rate for this company: a high-end growth rate and a low-end growth rate. You are to choose these growth rates based on what is reasonable from the data you have on the company’s dividend growth in prior years, as presented in your table. The two future dividend growth rates can be any of following: 
the most recent year growth rate; 
the average growth rate over the 8-year period;
the average growth rate over the most recent 5 years;
the average growth rate of the most recent 3 years; or
a growth rate you select that is reasonable, given the 8-year, 5-year, and 3-year averages, as well as the recent year growth rates.
NOTE: Both dividend growth rates must be lower than the required rate of return used in the constant growth formula. See Part 2 below for the required rate of return to use in the constant growth formula.
Justify the determined the high-end dividend growth rate and low-end dividend growth rates for your company.
Part 2: Preliminary Valuation: (two to three paragraphs)
Calculate the stock price for your selected company using the constant growth formula and the low-end dividend growth rate you determined in Part 1. Show all calculations for this estimated stock price using the low-end dividend growth rate.
For the required rate of return (r), use the following assumptions:
For a large capitalization company (greater than $10.0 billion in market capitalization) use 10.0%.
For a mid-cap company (between $2.0 billion and $10.0 billion in market capitalization) use 12.0%.
For a small-cap company (less than $2.0 billion in market capitalization) use 15.0%.
Show your calculations.
In a similar manner, calculate another estimate of the stock price for your selected company using the constant growth formula and the high-end dividend growth rate.
Use the same assumptions for the required rate of return (r) that you used for the low-end stock price, other than using the high-end dividend growth rate.
Show your calculations.
Compare each of the two stock prices you just calculated to the current stock price per share of the company.
State whether each constant growth stock price (low-end and high-end) is above or below the current price.
State whether each constant growth stock price (low-end and high-end) indicates if the stock price is currently under-valued or over-valued in the market.
Determine your concluded stock value, based on the two calculations using the constant growth formula.
Justify your conclusion of value for your stock, using either the high-end stock price or the low-end stock price from the constant growth formula.
The Section 3: Dividend Analysis and Preliminary Valuation paper
Must be three to four double-spaced pages in length including any tables or calculations (but not including title and references pages)
Must include a separate title page with the following:
Title of paper in bold font
Space should be between title and the rest of the information on the title page.
Student’s name
Name of institution (The University of Arizona Global Campus)
Course name and number
Instructor’s name

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
