Question

Given the previous values you calculated, what is the WACC for General Dynamics? Remember that if you couldn't solve one of the prior questions, assume a value for it and plug it in to solve for the WACC. Just list any assumptions.

Answer #1

WACC is the weighted average cost of capital.

WACC = (Weight of common stock)(cost of common stock) + (Weight of preferred stock)(cost of preferred stock) + (Weight of debt)(after-tax cost of debt)

The weights we use are the target weights of the Company.

Let us assume that the target weight of common stock:preferred stock:debt::0.4:0.3:0.3

Let us assume that the cost of common stock:preferred stock:debt::16%:12%:10%

Let us assume that the tax rate id 30%

WACC = (0.4)(16%) + (0.3)(12%) + (0.3)*((10%(1-30%))

=6.4% + 3.6% + 2.1%

**=12.1%**

Your task is to determine the WACC for a given firm using what
you know about WACC as well as data you can find through research.
Your deliverable is a brief report in which you state your
determination of WACC, describe and justify how you determined the
number, and provide relevant information as to the sources of your
data.

You
are given a chi square to fill out with 4 different observed
values: 0, 54, 36, and 18. These numbers represent the 4 different
phenotypes of offspring. If you have an observed value of 0 for one
of these variables, can it even be included as a probability? Would
that row just be disregarded from the data, and as a result you
would have to adjust the degrees of freedom? (From 4 categories to
3, then - 1)

Intelligence of the general population has a mean of µ = 100 and
a standard deviation of σ = 15. A researcher wonders if people who
exercise more than 30 min each day have an average mean IQ
different from 100. He randomly selects n = 81 people and enrolls
them in an exercise program for six months. After, he has each
individual take an IQ test and finds the average IQ of the sample
is M = 102.

You are shopping for a house and wonder what you can afford.
Banks look at collateral, creditworthiness and capacity (ability to
pay) when making loans. Assume you have sufficient downpayment and
credit score. Your bank has a requirement of 28% housing expense
ratio and your gross monthly income is $5,450. How much can you
afford to pay in principal, interest, taxes an insurance (PITI)
each month?

Suppose that you are holding a European call option on General
Motors stock that expires in 5 years. The option is currently
at-the-money. GM's current stock price is $42.50 and the current
yield on a 5-year Treasury bond is 2%. The standard deviation of
returns on GM stock is 25%. For the purposes of this series of
questions, you should assume that GM does not pay dividends.
You may assume that all of the information above applies.

You run 3 miles every day. On a given day, you record the time
it takes you (in minutes), and this takes values 25, ..., 31, with
each one being equally likely. The time it takes you on any day is
independent of the time on other days. You used to record your time
every day. Now, you just remember how long it took you every day,
and then at the end of the week, record your best time from...

Assume you are given the following equation (Y = 80-20X). The Y
value represents Price while X value represents Quantity demanded
for books.
In the space below, neatly calculate the values of X when Y are
15, 10, 5, and 0. Work must be shown.
Next, with the four data points calculated, neatly construct a
graph below by drawing and labeling both axes (Price and Quantity
Demanded). Now plot the four coordinates you have calculated from

This problem is similar to the previous problem, but the
parameter values are slightly different. Once again, an
experimenter is working with an enzyme that, on a per milligram
basis, produces a certain number of \mu μ mol of product per minute
at optimal temperature and pH. The product of the enzyme-catalyzed
reaction is a desirable fine chemical, and thus the researcher
designs a pilot biosynthetic reaction to produce a target number of
\mu μ mol of the desired product....
