Weight of capital

Debt = 40%

Preferred stock = 10%

Common equity = 50%

Cost of debt Kd = 6.5%

cost of equity = cost of retained earning Ke = 13.25%

Cost of preferred stock Kp = 7.5%

tax rate = 34%

using WACC = Wd*Kd*(1-t) + We*Ke + Wp*Kp = 0.4*6.5*(1-0.34) + 0.5*13.25 + 0.1*7.5 = 9.09%

Quigley's WACC is 9.09%
