Share price: The market price of a unit of a company's equity capital is called share price. In a competitive market it is equal to the net present value of the expected future dividend. If annual dividend is devoted by 'D' and the rate of discount by 'i', the share price is equal to 'D' divided by 'i'.

i.e Share price = annual dividend D / rate of discount i.
