1. With the information given, we can find the cost of equity using the dividend growth model. Using this model, the cost of equity is: R E = [$2.60(1.06)/$60] + .06 = .1059 or 10.59% 2. Here we have information to calculate the cost of equity using the CAPM. The cost of equity is: R E = .045 + 1.20(.13 .045) = .1470 or 14.70% 5. The cost of preferred stock is the dividend payment divided by the price, so: R P = $5/$87 = .0575 or 5.75% 6. The pretax cost of debt is the YTM of the company’s bonds, so: P 0 = $940 = $35(PVIFA R%,24 ) + $1,000(PVIF R%,24 ) R = 3.889% YTM = 2 × 3.889% = 7.78% And the aftertax cost of debt is: R D = .0778(1 .35) = .0506 or 5.06%

7. a. The pretax cost of debt is the YTM of the company’s bonds, so: P 0 = $1,080 = $45(PVIFA R%,46 ) + $1,000(PVIF R%,46 ) R = 4.11% YTM = 2 × 4.11% = 8.22% b. The aftertax cost of debt is: R D = .0822(1 .35) = .0534 or 5.34% c. The after-tax rate is more relevant because that is the actual cost to the company. 10. Here we need to use the debt-equity ratio to calculate the WACC. Doing so, we find: WACC = .17(1/1.80) + .10(.80/1.80)(1 .35) = .1233 or 12.33% 11. Here we have the WACC and need to find the debt-equity ratio of the company. Setting up the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
