A public corporation in which you own common stock reported a WACC of 10.7% for the year in its annual report to stockholders. The common stock that you own has averaged a total return of 6% per year over the last 3 years. The annual report also mentions that projects within the corporation are 80% funded by its own capital.
Estimate the company’s cost of debt capital. Does this seem like a reasonable rate for borrowed funds?
