1 - When finding EVA/Economic Profit do you use the market values for D&E in the $WACC calc? 2- Are we expected to find the discount rate for emerging market WACC? 3-What is information asymmetry? 4-What is informational complexity? Thanks guys!

No, BV. This can also be calculated as NWC + Net PPP 2. Don’t know 3. Managers know more about a company than the shareholders. 4. Don’t know

- To clarify, no for invested capital, yes for WACC.

thanks. actually i think one of last year’s questions had an option of using BV or MV for WACC

Check me on this: Invested capital = BV of long term debt + BV of equity = Current assets - current liability + fixed assets (not including PPE) The second equation I got from Schweser

Your first equation is right. I’m pretty sure the second equation is NWC (CA-CL) + Net PPE
