This seems to be a pretty simple question, so I will do some math and come up with the answer. Please let me know if my assumptions upon which my answer are based are incorrect, and I will withdraw my answer. If a company pays out $2.50 per share per quarter, this is equal to $10.00 per year. If the required rate of return is 12% per year, then .12 times the stock price should less than or equal to $10. Thusly, to make a 12% return on this investment, the most that a person would buy the stock for would be eighty three and one third dollars per share ($83.33) Since 12% of $83.33 is $10, this is the amount of return one would make on the stock, and to make 12%, the stock would have to cost this much or less.
