Need help with paper and calculations for: Rate of Return for Stocks and Bonds

Description

Note from me:

Please write more than 700 words since I will not use any content I do not truly understand. Please do not use any sources I cannot easily find on the internet. Please let me know sources used so I can learn further. My course text book provided is great also. Please cite sources as necessary within the paper itself. Please do not use direct quotes from Investopedia, as I have seen a tutor do that before. Please include Excel calculations in both the paper itself as well as the Excel doc itself so I can see actual formulas used. Thanks so much for your help!


Purpose of Assignment





The purpose of this assignment is to allow the student an opportunity to calculate the rate of return of equity and debt instruments. It allows the student to understand the effects of dividends; capital gains; inflation rates; and how the nominal rate of return affects valuation and pricing. The assignment also allows the student to apply concepts related to CAPM, WACC, and Flotation Costs to understand the influence of debt and equity on the company’s capital structure.
