FINANCE-Firms should use their weighted average cost of capital (WACC)

Firms should use their weighted average cost of capital (WACC) when they are funding their capital projects from a variety of financing sources. However, when the firm plans on using only a single debt or equity source to fund a particular project, it should use the after-tax cost of that specific source of capital to evaluate that project.TrueFalseIf a proposed investment has an NPV of zero, it means that you can expect to get a zero percent return from it if it is adopted.TrueFalseConflicts between two mutually exclusive projects, where the NPV method chooses one project but the IRR method chooses the other, should generally be resolved in favor of the project with the higher NPV.TrueFalseQuestion 5 >Whenever a firm goes into debt, it is using financial leverage.TrueFalseThree factors affecting a firm’s business risk are the variability of demand for the firm’s products, variability of the products’ sales prices, and the extent to which operating costs are fixed.TrueFalseQuestion 7 1 ptsAs a firm’s sales grow its current asset accounts tend to increase.
