Hi,

Yes, I am willing to help with all the questions if you agree to post one or two at a time.
It appears that you are on a subscription basis, so you should not be charged for each question.

The difference is because I used 2 decimal places to get the answer of 10.39%. The question did not specify to round to 3 decimal places. I will change the rounding to 3 decimal places in the answer file, you will see it is the same.

Ok it keeps wanting me to pay $30 for each accepted answer but you said you could help with all, not sure what you want me to do? Here is the next problem:

 

As a member of the Finance Department of Ranch manufacturing, your supervisor has asked you to compute the appropriate discount rate to use when evaluationg the purchase of new packaging equiptment for the plant. Under the assumption that the firms present capital structure reflects the appropriate mix of capital sources for the firm, you have to determine the market value of the firms capital structure as follows: Bonds - $4,100,000 Perferred Stock - $2,500,000 Common Stock- $6,500,000. to finance the purchase, Ranch Manf. will sell 10 year bonds paying 7.2% per year at the market price of $1072. perferred stock paying a $1.98 dividend can be sold for $25.07. Common stock for Ranch Manf. is currently selling for %55.43 per share and the firm paid a $3.06 dividend last year. Dividends are expected to continue growing at rate of 4.8% per year into the indefinate future. If the firms tax rate is 30% , what discount rate should you use to evaluate the equiptment purchase? Ranch Manf. WACC is what % (Round to 3 decimals)

I believe you are on a subscription, so you should not be charged for each "Accept". I will not be able to continue helping you until I receive another Accept. I will refer your question concerning billing to customer service. They should be able to tell you if you are paying for each question or for each billing period.
