Hong Kong Has The Lowest Implied Growth Rate In Asia

The implied growth rate is a way to see what growth rate the market expects. In this post, we’re using the dividend discount model (DDM) to find the implied growth rate. The discount rate is estimated using the capital asset pricing model (CAPM). Betas were set to 0.75, 1.00, or 1.25 according to our previous research on beta.

Here’s the math:

V0 = DPS1/(r-g)

Where V0= value of the stock today, DPS1 = dividend per share one year ahead, r = discount rate, and g = constant growth rate of DPS.


Implied growth = r-(DPS1/Price)

Where DPS1 = Estimated dividend per share.
