Value depends on reliably estimating risk and the cost of capital. Failure to properly assess risk leads to valuation errors. WACC is used to value corporations, projects, etc.

The required return on all of a firm’s securities. A marginal, after-tax cost of capital. Weighted average of the component costs of capital. Weights are determined by each component’s contribution to the capital structure.
Should our analysis focus on historical costs?
How are weights determined?
WACC = wdrd(1 − T) + wpsrps + wsrs
WACC is used for decisions about raising new capital and making new investments. z WACC focuses on marginal costs of raising an additional dollar of capital.
Weights are decided by a firm’s target capital structure. Usually based on market values of securities, rather than book values.
