The Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) for a firm can be
calculated or found through research. Select two firms in the same
industry. The industry may be that in which you currently work or it may
be an industry in which you are interested. Calculate or find the WACC
for the two firms. How do the WACCs compare? Are the WACCs what you
would expect? What causes the differences between the two firms’ WACCs?
