WACC is calculated as cost of debt*weight of debt (percentage of debt in the capital structure of the company)*(1-tax rate)+cost of common equity*weight of common equity + cost of preferred equity*weight of preferred equity.
What is efficient market theory?
Efficient market theory states that all known information is incorporated in the market and that it is impossible for an investor to generate consistent alpha within the market.
