What is the overall weighted average cost of capital for Marriott Corporation? (Use a corporate tax rate of 34%). What type of investments would you value using Marriott’s WACC?
Cost of debt:8.95%+1.3%=10.25%
Cost of equity:8.95%+1.64*7.43%=21.14%
實際beta=1.11,根據exhibit 1,長期債務為24.99億美元,權益價值為35.64億美元(30元*118.8百萬股),可以得出D/V=24.99/35.64=41%標的資本結構D/V=60%,所以必需做出調整。
Beta of asset=(E/V)*beta of equity=0.59*1.11=0.655
Beta of equity=(V/E)*beta of asset=(1/0.4)*0.655=1.64
Risk free rate:美國30年期政府公債利率為8.95%
Risk premium:exhibit 5 S&P500和美國長期政府公債的利率差為7.43%
If Marriott used a single corporate hurdle rate for evaluating investment opportunities in each of its lines of business, what would happen to the company over time?
風險高的項目,會有高的淨現值,所以公司會傾向選擇這些風險高的項目,而那些本來可行的低風險項目,在單一的hurdle rate之下,已不會被投資。
