You have been provided with the following data: D1 =;$1.45, P0 = $22.50, and g = 6.50% (constant). Based on the DCF approach;what is the cost of common from retained earnings? (Points: 2);11.10%;11.68%;12.30%;12.94%;Question;4. 4.A company?s perpetual preferred stock currently;sells for $92.50 per share, and it pays an $8.00 annual dividend.

(Points: 2);True;False;Question;9. 9.Which of the following statements is CORRECT? Assume;that the project being considered has normal cash flows, with one outflow;followed by a series of inflows. (Points: 2);The longer a project?s payback;period, the more desirable the project is normally considered to be by this;criterion.;One drawback of the regular payback for;evaluating projects is that this method does not properly account for the;time value of money.;If a project?s payback is positive, then;the project should be rejected because it must have a negative NPV.;The regular payback ignores cash flows;beyond the payback period, but the discounted payback method overcomes this;problem.;Question 10. 10.Which of the following is NOT a;capital component when calculating the weighted average cost of capital;(WACC) for use in capital budgeting?
