What is the price of the preferred stock? There is missing data :)
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
this is all the information that it gives me and its looking for %
Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 4 years ago.

I believe there is missing information, I will post the solution according to the given data, but I recommend that you email the instructor and tell him that the Current Price of Preferred Stock is not given. This is because if Preferred Stock is currently selling at par, then the cost of preferred stock is already given as 8.5%

 

Please advise the name of the book you are using: Title, author's name, and edition (is the question from the book?)
