Hello I am working on a case regarding Starbucks Coffee. Can you please provide your expertise in estimating Starbucks WACC and the intrinsic value of the firm and common stock. Also, what could Starbucks do to lower their cost of capital. Lastly, should an individual invest in (or not) Starbucks based on where Starbucks is now. I believe I have to use the CAP or DCF Models for this case and I have to calculate the firm’s cost of long term debt and preferred stock. THANKS!
