)-- WikiWealth.com, the world’s largest interactive investment research company, announces the introduction of comprehensive WACC (weight average cost of capital) discount rate calculations of over 3,000 companies, including the world’s largest corporations. Professional investors and finance students now have an open source to freely experiment with industry quality WACC discount rates and discuss individual insights. WikiWealth.com, as the future of investment research and analysis, continues to be the foremost global authority in interactive investment research of companies, currencies, countries and commodities.
The WACC calculations for companies, industries, hedge funds, private equity funds, and stock indexes (http://www.wikiwealth.com/company) are displayed in real time. Each WACC discount rate analysis features up to eleven comparable companies with real time stock price updates. Users can manipulate the companies to better suit their individual investment needs. WikiWealth.com uses the CAPM (capital asset pricing model) to compute the cost of equity and a levered/unlevered beta adjustment to refine the WACC calculation. WikiWealth.com’s user-friendly transparency model, succinct approach, and customization can aid investment professionals in their research.
WikiWealth.com’s innovative experiment mode (WIEM) allows persons to experiment with any number, formula, and assumption to reflect individual insights. From Apple Inc. (http://www.wikiwealth.com/research:aapl) to debt-laden MGM Mirage (http://www.wikiwealth.com/research:mgm), the WEIM customization is another industry first, developed by Wikiwealth.com. Calculate and explore how different combinations of comparable companies match your needs without painstakingly creating a separate research report or protocol each time. Use WikiWealth.com to acquire WACC estimates before building your own models and apply WikiWealth.com’s industry quality analysis to contrast and evaluate your finished analysis. The analysis is free, but the time saved is priceless. Experiment with tax rates, debt levels, beta estimates, shares outstanding and other figures based on your individual assumptions. WikiWealth.com provides the highest quality WACC calculations and an unmatched level of customization to aid your investment style or learning objective.
The WACC discount rate calculation is only one segment of WikiWealth.com’s full investment research report (FIRR).
