4. Compute BioCom's weighted average cost of capital. Should you use book values or market values for this computation? For calculating the WACC, I would use Book Values because for calculating on Market Rates we need to know quantity of common and preferred stock shares.

Bond 1| 18%| 2,10%| 0,38%|
Bond 2| 20%| 2,53%| 0,51%|
