WACC and Corporate Investment Decisions

Prepare a minimum 700-word analysis including the following:

  • 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.
  • Also include a copy of a plagiarism report. A report with more than a 30% plagiarism rate (excluding numbers) will also be considered plagiarized absent something extraordinary.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
