a. Search Yahoo Finance or any other credible source to retrieve the most recent income statement and balance sheet for a major leveraged corporation. Provide these statements in proper format. Also, retrieve the data on the company’s stock annual rate of return for the past 5 years. In addition, retrieve annual rate of return of a major financial index. Present this data as well. Using the data on company’s stock rate of return and the index’s rate of return estimate beta of the corporation. Make sure to adjust this value to obtain leveraged beta. Compare this value with the value stated by the source. Retrieve the risk-free rate of return as the annual interest rate of US treasuries. Based on these values estimate the expected annual rate of return of the corporation’s security. Using the financial statements mentioned above estimate the annual rate of interest paid by the corporation (cost of debt). Also, find the tax rate and capitalization ratio (proportions among equity and debt). Using these values that you have found estimate the annual weighted cost of capital (WACC) of the corporation.
