    The value of the stock today is $16.63.

    Explanation:

    The value of the common stock today can be calculated using the DDM approach. As the dividends are growing at a certain rate for some period of time before the growth rate becomes constant, the two stage growth model will be used. Th formula for value/price under two stage dividend growth model is,

    P0 or V0 = D1 / (1+r) + D2 / (1+r) ^2 + ... + [Dn * (1+g) / (r - g) ] / (1+r) ^n

    Thus, V0 = 1.43 * (1+0.147) / (1+0.146) + 1.43 * (1+0.147) ^2 / (1+0.146) ^2 + [{1.43 * (1+0.147) ^2 * (1+0.038) } / (0.146 - 0.038) ] / (1+0.146) ^2

    V0 = $16.63
