How is @AdaptPrep ; getting £65 for this?

Surely the formula is Value = Dividend / Required Rate of Return

£6.35 / 0.0875 = 72.57

I was saying same thing last night when I answered this.  Absolutely is 75. If we don't know GGM and/or all derivations of it by now then might as well quit haha

Sorry, the answer is 75, not 65. I didn't realize I clicked on the wrong answer choice. Here's the solution:

The formula for a non-callable, non-convertible, perpetual preferred stock is:

V_0 = D_1 / r = £6.35 / 0.0875 = £72.57
