Executive Summary of Pepsico
Through my research of Pepsico, I have calculated the cost of capital. A
firm\'s cost of capital is imperative because it represents the funds used to
finance the firm\'s assets and operations. First you have to estimate the cost
of capital in order to minimize it.
In estimating the cost of capital, you first have to find the cost of
each capital component and then combine the component costs to find the weighted
average cost of capital. First, I calculated the cost of debt. Pepsico\'s bond
consisted of 7 5/8 coupon rate, maturing in 1998 at a price of $1023.80. I
figured the payments to be $38.15(.0763*1000/2). I then used my financial
calculator to find the bond yield of 5.16% by entering in 1023.80=PV, 1000=FV, 2=
N, 38.15=PMT. The bond was calculated semi-annually, therefore I multiplied the
answer for I/Y times 2 to get 5.16%.
The next step would be to calculate the preferred stock, however my
stock had none. I then went to the third step of calculating cost of retained
earnings. First I found the three growth rates which were historical, forecast,
and sustainable growth. The historical and forecast annual rates I simply
pulled directly from Value Line under Past 10 years and estimated years of the
dividends. They both were 14.0%. The sustainable growth is calculated by
taking the retention rate (b) and multiplying it by the return on equity (r ).
To find b, I first calculated the dividends payout ratio which is DPS/EPS. I
pulled DPS and EPS from value line under 1997. Then to find the retention rate,
I subtracted the ratio from 1. Next, I calculated r, by taking net income and
dividing it by net worth. These figures I also pulled from Value Line. My b=
.352, and r=28.68%. Then the third growth rate was 10.10(.352*28.68).
Still calculating the cost of retained earnings, I then calculated my
cash flows by the discounted cash flow approach. For the first three cash flows,
I took the dividend of the stock over the price of the stock, and then added the
growth rate to it. My first cash flow equaled to 15.38%, second was also 15.38%,
and the third one was 11.45%. To find the cash flow four, I used the CAPM
approach. This formula is Ks=Krf + (Km-Krf)bs. I found beta on Value Line
which was .95. The risk free rate was found by obtaining the current yield on a
20yr. T-bond from the Wall Street Journal. It equaled 6.60%. The Km-Krf was
found in the book, and equaled 7.1%. After plugging those numbers into the
formula, I came up with 13.35%.
The last calculating was the weighted average cost of capital. The
formula for this is: WACC=WdKd(1-tax rate) + WpKpf + WsKs. I found the weights
of debt and equity on Value Line, and they were: Wd=55%, and Ws=45%. The cost
of debt and equity were already calculated, and the tax rate of 40% was given to
us. There was no preferred stock, so I did not use those numbers in my
calculation. After plugging in the values, my WACC came out to be 7.71%.
This number can be interpreted as the weighted average cost of each new dollar
of capital raised at the margin. The capital is basically the entire right hand
side of the balance sheet, and the cost of capital must be minimized in order to
maximize the value of the firm.

Activity Based CostingActivity Based Costing Abstract The dissertation discusses the ABC (Activity Based Costing) method and how it can help or influence management decisions. The method of Activity-Based Costing (ABC) was developed primarily for solving problems which emerged from traditional cost management systems. Troubleshooting in the management of companies throughout the late 70’s and especially the early 80’s held a constant presence. The problems generated were mainly from the traditional cost accounting sy

American and French RevolutionAmerican and French Revolution During the late 1800’s, two great revolutions occurred, the American Revolution and the French Revolution. These two historical events happened at the same time, but had a great number differences and very little similarity. When French Revolution occurred, it turned into a very violent and bloody event, while the American Revolution was almost nonviolent, aside from the war. In 1774, King Louis XVI made a decision that could have prevented the French Revolution by

James WattJames Watt Watt, James (1736-1819) (1736-1819), Scottish inventor and mechanical engineer, renowned for his improvements of the steam engine. Watt was born on January 19, 1736, in Greenock, Scotland. He worked as a mathematical-instrument maker from the age of 19 and soon became interested in improving the steam engines, invented by the English engineers Thomas Savery and Thomas Newcomen, which were used at the time to pump water from mines. Watt determined the properties of steam, especially th
