You need to estimate the equity beta for Golden Clothiers, Inc. Golden’s debt-to-equity ratio is 85%, which is higher than a typical firm in its industry. The following table shows the levered equity betas and debt-to-equity ratios for three comparable firms. Assume the tax rate is 40%.
Company Levered Beta D/E ratio
TJ Maxx 1.68 0.25
New York & Co. 2.14 0.16
Express, Inc. 1.23 0.28
