The firm will finance the rest of its $125 million in capital expenditures with retained earnings. Next year, Alpha expects net income to grow 7 percent to $140 million, and dividends also are expected to increase 7 percent to $1.40 per share and to continue growing at that rate for the foreseeable future. The current market value of Alpha’s common stock is $30 per share. If the firm has a tax rate of 21 percent, what is its weighted cost of capital for next year?
