Abstract [en]

We derive analytical formulas for the post-horizontal and asymptotic behavior of earnings, dividends, book value, and key financial ratios, as implied by the terminal value model of constant perpetual abnormal earnings growth. The implications of Claus and Thomas (2001) (CT) abnormal earnings growth forecasts for these quantities are examined and found reasonable. Analysis of the implicit functional relationships between the equity premium and the aforesaid quantities using CT's U.S. data reveals that a traditional premium of 8% implies 14% asymptotic growth in abnormal earnings, earnings, dividends and book value, and equally extreme asymptotic return-on-equity, price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios.
