The current market price is $90.00. Any new issues of preferred stock would incur a $3.00 per share flotation cost.The company has 10 million shares of common stock outstanding with a currently price of $14.00 per share. The stock exhibits a constant growth rate of 10 percent. The last dividend (D0) was $.80. New stock could be sold with 15% flotation costs.The risk-free rate is currently 6 percent, and the rate of return on the stock market as a whole is 14 percent. Your stock’s beta is 1.22.Stockholders require a risk premium of 5 percent above the return on the firms bonds.The firm expects to have additional retained earnings of $10 million in the coming year, and expects depreciation expenses of $35 million.Your firm does not use notes payable for long-term financing.The firm considers its current market value capital structure to be optimal, and wishes to maintain that structure.

[Hint: PV=-$874.78 (current selling price of Bonds), FV = $1000, PMT=$100, N=15 solve for I/Y].This is a calculator (Texas Instruments BA II Plus Financial Calculator) problem and if you follow the hints you will find the effective rate (see textbook appendix 10B, page 338: Bond Valuation) CLICK Minor Project #1.a.
