The bond is currently selling for a price of \$1,127 and will mature in 10 yrs. The firm's tax rate is 34% (b) If the firm's bonds are not frequently traded, how would you go about determining  a cost of debt for this company? (c)A new common stock issue that paid a \$1.72 dividendend last yr. The par value of the stock is \$15, and the firm's  dividends per share have grown at a rate of 7.1% per yr.

#6)The preferred stock of Gator Industries sells for \$34.81 and pays \$2.73 per yr. in dividends.What is the cost of preferred stock financing ? If Gator were to issue 519,000 more preferred shares just like the ones it currently has outstanding, it could sell them for \$34.81 a share but would incur flotation costs of \$3.14 per share. What are the flotation costs for issuing the preferred shares and how should this cost be incorporated into the  NPV, of the project being financed?(round to the nearest dollar) kps=Divps/Pps=\$2.73/\$34.81=0.0784=7.84% (this is correct) I was not able to sove the next part.
