The weighted average cost of capital for this company is 9.48%.
Cost of capital is often used in net present value analysis as the discount rate, which is the rate that other investments would return that have similar risks. Cost of capital is the total of all of the actual costs of a company’s debts and equities. These costs include such factors as interest, tax expense, and equity costs. It is what percentage it costs the company to tie up its capital, so in order for an investment to be desirable, it must return a percentage greater than what it takes for the company to cover its capital costs. In a net present value analysis, the cost of capital is

Weighted Average Cost of Capital
The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is the weighted average of the required return for equity and the required return for debt. The WACC is the overall required return an organization uses to determine the feasibility of capital projects. WACC is important as a measurement of the bottom line an investment must return to add value for shareholders. Companies with a lower WACC have a

For a publicly traded company, shareholder value is the part of its capitalization that is equity as opposed to longterm debt. In the case of only one type of stock, this would roughly be the number of outstanding shares times current share price. Things like dividends augment shareholder value while issuing of shares (stock options) lower it. This Shareholder value added should be compared to average/required increase in value, also known as cost of capital. For a privately held company, the value of the firm after debt must be estimated using one of several valuation methods, such as discounted cash flow or others. Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) is used to

The selected proposal to purchase a laborsaving piece of equipment that will last five years assumes the discount rate or the weighted average cost of capital is 10%. Since the labor content is at 12% of $10 million in annual sales, this can be noted as an annual labor cost of $1.2 million (10,000,000 x 0.12). The new piece of equipment is expected to save 20% of labor annually, resulting in a $240,000 reduction in cost each year over the next five years (1,200,000 x 0.20).

based on the residual income technique that has been used since the early
20th century. Residual income is a performance measure normally used for assessing
the performance of divisions, in which a finance charge is deducted from the profits of
the division. The finance charge is calculated as the net assets of the division,
multiplied by an interest rate – normally the company’s weighted average cost of
capital.
Example 1
Division A made a profit of $10,000 during the most recent financial year. The capital
used by the division (equity plus longterm debt) was $70,000. The weighted average

While calculating NOPAT, nonoperating items like dividend/interest in securities invested outside the business, nonoperation expenses etc. will not be considered.

A valuation method used to estimate the attractiveness of an investment opportunity. Discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis uses future free cash flow projections and discounts them (most often using the weighted average cost of capital) to arrive at a present value, which is used to evaluate the potential for investment. If the value arrived at through DCF analysis is higher than the current cost of the investment, the opportunity may be a good one.

Determining the company debt, equity, and weighted average cost of capital (WACC) helps determine stock research and provides details into the returns shareholders should expect in the longterm. WACC is the minimum return that company’s need in order to satisfy investors. Additionally, knowing the company’s equity and debt gives insight into what is needed for the company to break even on its investments. The two types of capitals include debt and equity.

inventory is usually accomplished using one of three methods. FIFO (first in, first out), LIFO (last in, first out), and weighted average. With the FIFO method, the first items purchased would be the first items removed from the inventory. The LIFO method removes the most recently purchased inventory items first. Weighted average is a compromise between FIFO and LIFO. When weighted average is used the total cost of inventory available for sale is divided by the totally number of units available for sale. When weighted average is used the cost of goods sold is reflective of the total period’s operations but the inventory valuation is not representative of future cash flows. Weighted

Estimating the Cost of Capital
In order to calculate the cost of capital of Ameritrade we will use the Capital Asset Pricing Model. This model helps estimate the required rate of return of a certain investment for the given risk. In the case of Ameritrade, we can use this method by finding the most accurate risk free rate, market risk premium and asset beta. We can then find the return on assets by using the following formula:
Ra= Rf+ βa (RmRf)
To find the asset Beta (βa), we need to find the weighted average β of equity and the weighted average β of debt. We consider the β of debt to be 0, as debt has no relationship with market risk and it is evident from the balance sheet

7. How can the budgetary weighted average contribution margin (WACM) percentage be used to help control the actual operations of Reliance?

Table 4: Discounted Cash Flow (b)
Calculation of weighted average for cost of capital is derived to be 7.66% with cost of equity being 9.43% and cost of debt being 0.40%. For a project to be feasible, not just profitable, HiP must generate a return higher than the cost of capital. Based on assumptions of inflation rate of 1% and the terminal year to be at $91million, a projection of free cash flows is made for a period from Year 2012 to Year 2021. The discounted cash flow and present value of free cash flows result in present value of enterprise value and a subtract of net debt will
