(Points: 5);The WACC can be used throughout the firm as the company-wide cost of capital;for new investments that are of comparable risk to the rest of the firm and;that will not alter the firm?s debt-equity ratio.;A disadvantage of the WACC method is that you need to know how the firm's;leverage policy is implemented to make the capital budgeting decision.;The intuition for the WACC method is that the firm's weighted average cost of;capital represents the average return the firm must pay to its investors (both;debt and equity holders) on an after-tax basis.;To be profitable, a project should generate an expected return of at least the;firm's weighted average cost of capital.;number 2.... (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points: 5);One advantage of the NPV over the IRR is that NPV takes account of cash flows;over a project?s full life, whereas IRR does not.;One advantage of the NPV over the IRR is that NPV assumes that cash flows will;be reinvested at the WACC, whereas IRR assumes that cash flows are reinvested;at the IRR. The NPV assumption is generally more appropriate.;One advantage of the NPV over the MIRR method is that NPV takes account of cash;flows over a project?s full life, whereas MIRR does not.;One advantage of the NPV over the MIRR method is that NPV discounts cash flows;whereas the MIRR is based on undiscounted cash flows.;Because cash flows under the IRR and MIRR are both discounted at the same rate;(the WACC), these two methods always rank mutually exclusive projects in the;same order.
