## What is Gordon’s formula?

The Gordon Growth Formula:

The formula simply is: **Terminal Value = (D1/(r-g))** where: D1 is the dividend expected to be received at the end of Year 1. R is the rate of return expected by the investor and. G is the perpetual growth rate at which the dividends are expected to grow.

## Is dividend growth model the same as dividend discount model?

**GGM** takes the infinite series of dividends per share and discounts them back into the present using the required rate of return. GGM is a variant of the dividend discount model (DDM). GGM is ideal for companies with steady growth rates given its assumption of constant dividend growth.

## What represent capital gain in the Gordon Growth Model?

3. Gordon’s formula implies the intrinsic value grows at the dividend (flow payoff) growth rate, g, see PS2. the capitalization rate equals the dividend yield plus growth rate. Since the intrinsic value grows at rate g, **g** is the capital gain return.
