If g > k s , the constant growth formula leads to a negative stock price, which does not make sense.
The constant growth model can only be used if:
k s > g
g is expected to be constant forever

If k RF = 7%, k M = 12%, and β = 1.2, what is the required rate of return on the firm’s stock?
Use the SML to calculate the required rate of return (k s ):
k s = k RF + (k M – k RF ) β
= 7% + (12% - 7%)1.2
= 13%
