CAPM and the Constant Dividend Growth Model
The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is a powerful analytical tool used for calculating the price of common stock. After reflecting on theory and application of the CAPM model and reviewing the prior work on the Constant Dividend Growth Model post a one paragraph response to the following questions.
Question 1  What are the primary advantages and disadvantages of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) compared with the Constant Dividend Growth Model for use in pricing common stock?
Question 2  Can either or both of these two models be used to price the stock of Gamma Inc., a nonpublicly traded company that does not pay dividends? Explain your answer.
Question 3  Why is it that the financial models for calculating the price of a stock cannot be reliably used to make day to day investment decisions in the stock market?
