Scenario: Wilson Corporation (not real) has a targeted
capital structure of 40% long term debt and 60% common stock. The debt

  • Calculate the company’s weighted average cost of capital. Use the dividend discount model. Show calculations in Microsoft® Word.
  • The company’s CEO has stated if the company increases the amount of
    long term debt so the capital structure will be 60% debt and 40% equity,
    this will lower its WACC. Explain and defend why you agree or disagree.
    Report how would you advise the CEO.
