Green Gadgets Inc. is trying to decide whether to cut its expected dividends for next year from $8 per share to $5 per share in order to have more money to invest in new projects. If it does not cut the dividend, Green Gadgets’ expected rate of growth in dividends is 5 percent per year and the price of its common stock will be $100 per share. However, if they cut their dividend, the dividend growth rate is expected to rise to 8 percent in the future. Assuming that the investor’s required rate of return for Green Gadgets’ stock does not change, what would you expect to happen to the price of its common stock if it cuts the dividend to $5? Should Green Gadgets’ cut its dividend? Support your answer as best as you can.
