1. 1) In order to create value, a corporation must earn a rate of return on its invested capital
that is higher than the market’s required rate of return on that invested capital.

2. 4) The cost of debt increases relative to the investor’s required return due to flotation
costs, but decreases relative to the investor’s required return due to the tax deductibility of


3. 3) The cost of debt capital is obtained by substituting the net proceeds per bond for the
bond price in the bond valuation equation and solving for the required return.

4. 4) The cost of preferred stock is equal to the preferred stock dividend divided by the net
proceeds per preferred share.

5. 7) The Capital Asset Pricing Model may be used to estimate the cost of retained earnings.

6. 10) The after-tax cost of equity equals one minus the marginal tax rate times the required
rate of return on common stock.

from a higher cost source of capital, such as common equity, to a lower cost source of

capital, such as debt.

13. 5) The average cost of capital is the appropriate rate to use when evaluating new
investments, even though the new investments may be in a higher risk class.

14. 7) The mixture of financing sources used by a firm will vary from year to year, so many
firms use target capital structure proportions when calculating the firm’s weighted

average cost of capital.

15. 11) A firm’s weighted average cost of capital is a function of (1) the individual costs of
capital, (2) the capital structure mix, and (3) the level of financing necessary to make the
