What is the WACC and why is it important to estimate a firm’s cost of capital? What does it represent? Is the WACC set by investors or by managers? 2. Do you agree with Joanna Cohen’s WACC calculation? Why or why not?

NIKE, INC.: COST OF CAPITAL
This case is intended to serve as an introduction to the calculation of the weightedaverage cost of capital (WACC) of the firm.
The case provides a WACC calculation and analysis which may have been conducted properly or may contain some gaps and/or errors. The task of the student is to critically review the analysis done by Joanna Cohen and provide their comments on it. If the student (or students in the group) do not agree with Joanna they must explain the reasons and provide their own
analysis.
The case assumes that students have been exposed to the WACC, CAPM, the dividend discount model, and the earnings capitalization model.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
