Assignment from nickkynickky
Write a corporate management report in which you explore the factors that influence the valuation of the equity of a company. Include the following:
- Assume the CAPM is used in forming the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). Form a discussion on the CAPM in which you describe each of the following issues.
- How is diversification important in the formation of the CAPM? The discussion should touch on the topics of total risk, systematic risk and unsystematic risk.
- Define and provide numerical illustrations for the CAPM. Show how the model adjusts across different inputs and the consequence for valuation.
- Research and defend the validity of the CAPM given the academic literature.
Based upon this model, explain the ways that managers can form initiatives to enhance the value of the corporation. Provide numerical illustrations of these initiatives based upon modifying the assumptions in the model and re-calculating the final value. For example, show how increasing or decreasing the sales growth rate will impact the bottom line valuation of common equity.
Support your paper with at least five (5) additional peer-reviewed publications. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
