9-2 What sources of long-term  capital do firms use? Long-Term Capital Long-Term Debt Preferred Stock Common Stock Retained Earnings New Common Stock
9-3 Calculating the weighted  average cost of capital WACC = w d k d (1-T) + w p k p  + w c k s   The w’s refer to the firm’s capital  structure weights. The k’s refer to the cost of each  component.

9-4 Should our analysis focus on  before-tax or after-tax capital costs? Stockholders focus on A-T CFs.   Therefore, we should focus on A-T  capital costs, i.e. use A-T costs of  capital in WACC.  Only k d  needs  adjustment, because interest is tax  deductible.
9-5 Should our analysis focus on  historical (embedded) costs or new  (marginal) costs? The cost of capital is used primarily to  make decisions that involve raising new  capital.  So, focus on today’s marginal  costs (for WACC).

9-6 How are the weights determined? WACC =  w d k d (1-T) +  w p k p  +  w c k s   Use accounting numbers or market  value (book vs. market weights)? Use actual numbers or target capital  structure?
9-7 Component cost of debt  WACC = w d k d (1-T)  + w p k p  + w c k s   k d  is the marginal cost of debt capital. The yield to maturity on outstanding L- T debt is often used as a measure of  k d . Why tax-adjust, i.e. why k d (1-T)?

9-8 A 15-year, 12% semiannual coupon  bond sells for \$1,153.72.  What is  the cost of debt (k d )? Remember, the bond pays a semiannual  coupon, so k d  = 5.0% x 2 = 10%. INPUTS OUTPUT N I/YR PMT PV FV 30 5 60 1000 -1153.72
9-9 Component cost of debt Interest is tax deductible, so  A-T k d  = B-T k d  (1-T)           = 10% (1 - 0.40) = 6% Use nominal rate. Flotation costs are small, so ignore  them.

9-10 Component cost of preferred  stock  WACC = w d k d (1-T) + w p k p  + w c k s   k p  is the marginal cost of preferred  stock. The rate of return investors require on  the firm’s preferred stock.

### What students are saying

• 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.
