      The intrinsic value of the stock is
      equal to the present value of its cash flows.

      Year 1 CF: £1.50 dividend

      Year 2 CF: £2.00 dividend

      Year 3 CF: £2.50 dividend + £36.23
      terminal value (£38.73 total)

      The present value of these payments
      at 10% is:

      PV = 1.50 / 1.1 + 2.00 / 1.1^2 +
      38.73 / 1.1^3 = 32.11
