# Gordon Growth Model

## Definition of 'Gordon Growth Model'
A model for determining the intrinsic value of a stock, based on a future series of dividends that grow at a constant rate. Given a dividend per share that is payable in one year, and the assumption that the dividend grows at a constant rate in perpetuity, the model solves for the present value of the infinite series of future dividends.
Where: D = Expected dividend per share one year from now k = Required rate of return for equity investor G = Growth rate in dividends (in perpetuity) |

## Investopedia explains 'Gordon Growth Model'Because the model simplistically assumes a constant growth rate, it is generally only used for mature companies (or broad market indices) with low to moderate growth rates. |
