I need help figuring this out.
The Accidental Petroleum Company is trying to determine its weighted average cost of capital for use in making a number of investment decisions. The firm's bonds were issued 6 years ago and have 14 years left until maturity. They carried an 8% coupon rate, and are currently selling for $962.50.
The firm's preferred stock carries a $4.60 dividend and is currently selling at $42.50 per share. Accidental's investment banker has stated that issue costs for new preferred will be 50 cents per share.
