formula likh kar try to karo. mara kuch our aeya hai 15 se uppar upar Re and Rd ka interest rate kaise aee ga. Jaldi se batain.

any body any idea??????

formula for part 1=total cost of debt*(1-tax rate)

formula for part 2=   

Cost of Equity = (Next Year's Annual Dividend / Current Stock Price) + Dividend Growth Rate

formula for part 3= 

Cost of Preferred Stock =Annual Dividend on Preferred Stock/Current Market Price of Preferred Stock

formula for part 4= .5*total cost of equity+.5*cost of debt*1-tax rate

total cost of equity will be obtained by adding both the cost of common stock and preferred stock and cost of debt will be the value which is calculated in part 1.

Good Luck


the cost of debt will not the one which is calculated in q 1 rather it will be 33% 

Please explain in connection with question and detailed provided.Thanks.

how to find the total cost of debt??

plz share the solution

how to find the total cost of debt??

cost of equity
Cost of Equity = (Next Year's Annual Dividend / Current Stock Price) + Dividend Growth Rate

5 + 10% = 5.1

5.1 / 102 + 0.1 =0.15 cost of equity

this is right

Cost of Preferred Stock =Annual Dividend on Preferred Stock/Current Market Price of Preferred Stock

3.2/ 3500000 = 9.14

this is right
