Answer #1

Q1. Cost of Equity = (Expected Dividend / Price ) + Growth Rate

= [ ( $ 1.85 * 1.048) / $ 22.26] + 4.8%

= 13.51%

Hence the correct answer is **13.51%**

**Q2.**

cost of equity capital= Risk Free rate + (Market Return - Risk Free Rate ) * Beta

= 5.4% + ( 8.7% - 5.4% ) * 0.9

= 8.37%

Hence the correct answer
is **8.37%**

**Q3.**

Annual Dividend = 4.1% * $ 100

= $ 4.10

Price = $ 58.66

Hence, Cost of preferred stock = Annual Dividend / Price *100

= $ 4.10 / $ 58.66 *100

= 6.99%

Hence the correct answer is **6.99%**
