    Price = $66.78

    Explanation:

    The dividend growth model will be used to calculate the price of stock. The future value of dividend, required rate of return and growth rate will be used to calculate the price of stock.

    Price = Expected Dividend

    Required Rate of Return - Growth Rate

    Price = Dividend Paid (1 + Growth Rate)

    Required Rate of Return - Growth Rate

    Price = Do (1 + g)

    r - g

    Price = 3.15 * (1 + 0.06)

    0.11 - 0.06

    Price = $66.78
