Hi All, I am working on Table 9.4 of estimated debt ratios with existing ratios(Applied corporate Finance, Damodaran), does anyone know how to estimate the cost of equity for future periods? Thank You!

Here is what I tried to do. I computed the expected values of equity and debt each year. To get the former, I had to allow for the increase in value of equity from price appreciation but I did net out dividends and buybacks... For debt, I looked at the starting debt and any repayments.. I used this debt to equity ratio to compute a new levered beta and the beta to get to a cost of equity.
