Answer #1

Answer a.

Cost of Common Equity = Expected Dividend / Current Price +
Growth Rate

Cost of Common Equity = $1.89 / $21.75 + 0.05

Cost of Common Equity = 0.0869 + 0.0500

Cost of Common Equity = 0.1369 or 13.69%

Answer b.

Cost of Common Equity = Risk-free Rate + Beta * (Market Return -
Risk-free Rate)

Cost of Common Equity = 6.00% + 1.20 * (12.00% - 6.00%)

Cost of Common Equity = 6.00% + 1.20 * 6.00%

Cost of Common Equity = 13.20%

Answer c.

Cost of Common Equity = Bond Yield + Risk Premium

Cost of Common Equity = 9.00% + 4.00%

Cost of Common Equity = 13.00%

Answer d.

Estimated Cost of Common Equity = (13.69% + 13.20% + 13.00%) /
3

Estimated Cost of Common Equity = 39.89% / 3

Estimated Cost of Common Equity = 13.30%
