Debt is represented by 15year original maturity bonds, issued 5 years ago, with coupon rate of 8% and are presently selling for $965. Bonds pay interest semiannually. Favoured stock pays $5 dividend annually and is presently valued at $60 per share. Flotation costs on debt and favoured equity are negligible and can be ignored, but they will be 8% of selling price for common stock. Common stock, which can be purchased for $32.00, has experienced a 5% annual growth rate in dividends and is expected to pay $1.50 dividend next year. Additionally, firm expects to have $150,000 of retained earnings. Suppose that TRM's marginal tax rate is 35%.
