Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I am looking for the WACC for a company. The main problem I am having is with the aftertax part of this problem. Common stock is 40% with a cost of preferred stock of 9.6%, Common stock is 40% with a cost of common equity 17.9%. Does this help you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The way the problem is setup is figure the debt amount of 0.45 * aftertax = something. Then you figure Preferred stock of 0.15*0.096=0.0144, Common stock 0.40*0.179=0.0716 then you add the three together. I just am not sure how to figure the debt aftertax part of the problem. Please explain how to do this if you can.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not really. It's the terminology that I'm having trouble following. If I were you, I'd test out these percentages you're working with by using actual dollar amounts. Besides, in order to really help you, I'd have to have a full idea of how it all works together. I would need some kind of visual model of the money flow.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the way, if you want someone to help you, you should make sure you give the helper the best description of the situation as possible. Sometimes words only isn't enough. Pictures, flowcharts, graphsI'm almost positive your company uses such things in business meetings when they're explaining their money flow.
