What is the Dividend Discount Model? Meaning.

The Dividend Discount Model is a valuation technique that estimates the price a stock will be trading by calculating the Net Present Value of all expected future dividend payments discounted by an appropriate risk-adjusted rate.

Two well-known variants of this model are:

  • Stable model. Best suited for firms experiencing long-term stable growth, the model assumes the firm grows at a rate equal to the long-term nominal growth rate of the economy (inflation plus real growth in GDP).

  • Two-stage model. Assumes that the company will experience a period of high-growth followed by a decline to a stable growth period.

Both variants are very sensitive to the assumptions made regarding growth rates, time frame, and the required rate of return.
