As an investor would you rather invest in a firm
As an investor, would you rather invest in a firm that has a policy of maintaining (1) a constant payout ratio, (2) a stable, predictable dividend per share with a target dividend growth rate, or (3) a constant regular quarterly dividend plus a year-end extra payment when earnings are sufficiently high or corporate investment needs sufficiently low? Explain your answer, stating how these policies would affect your required rate of return, rs. Also, discuss how your answer might change if you were a student, a 50-year-old professional with peak earnings, or a retiree.
