Valuing a preferred stock

      Preferred stock of 6$ dividend
      sustainable growth rate of company is 5%
      yield on comparable stocks is 11.5%
      marginal tax rate is 30%

      value the stock of the company
      the answer is 6/0.115 = 52$

      why did we not use the growth rate in the denominator? I would have gotten ninety something dollars if : 6/ (0.115-0.05)
      is it a rule for preferred stocks to not use growth rate??

        Yep. What @GraemeA said.

        Yes….. They are treated like a perpetuity since they have no maturity… Also, unlike common shareholders, preferred shareholders receive fixed payments that do not generally grow.
