Quantitative Problem: Barton Industries estimates its cost of common equity by using three approaches: the CAPM, the bond-yield-plus-risk-premium approach, and the DCF model. Barton expects next year's annual dividend, D1, to be \$2.20 and it expects dividends to grow at a constant rate g = 3.6%. The firm's current common stock price, P0, is \$22.00. The current risk-free rate, rRF, = 4.8%; the market risk premium, RPM, = 6.1%, and the firm's stock has a current beta, b, = 1.2. Assume that the firm's cost of debt, rd, is 8.76%. The firm uses a 4.1% risk premium when arriving at a ballpark estimate of its cost of equity using the bond-yield-plus-risk-premium approach. What is the firm's cost of equity using each of these three approaches? Round your answers to 2 decimal places.

 CAPM cost of equity: % Bond yield plus risk premium: % DCF cost of equity:
