According to the evaluation, the short term debt of the comapny is not according to the industry standards and further, the performance of the long term debt is quite similar with the performance of the industry standard.

The performance of the comapny is bad while it has been presented in a better manner to manage the share price of the comapny. For computing, the value of the stock, various internal and external factors has been evaluated[4].

According to this theory, I have found that the constant dividend growth model is more reasonable. This takes into consideration all the related factors and depicts a better result accordingly.  

According to the understanding and various articles, it has been found that the current methods of identifying the stock price of the comapny are not reliable as they are based on many assumptions, these models must depict the reliable knowledge by taking various other factors into the consideration such as market changes, new deals, diversification, new market, economical changes etc. these factors would offer a better result.

So the debt valuation study and cost of debt of the comapny has been evaluated according to 30%.  Additionally, it has been analyzed that the difference exists among the cost of capital and the cost of equity due to the various other factors. The cost of debt and equity has been different due to various internal and external factors.

Further, it has been analyzed that the current liabilities of a comapny should not be included into the calculations of cost of capital due to the fact that there are various other ways to calculate the short term cost of the comapny.

From the calculations, it has been found that the total cost of capital of the comapny is 0.08907 which depict that comapny has to pay at least 0.08907 to the investors and debt holders for the funds. This cost is analyzed according to the total equity weight and debt weight of the comapny.

Currently, comapny has analyzed 2 new projects and made investment into them after analyzing the risk and return through the capital budgeting techniques. And the decision of raising the funds has been taken by conducting the study of WACC. Through this, comapny has identified that whether the raising funds from debt and equity would be risk free and the cost would also be less[6].

The current capital structure of the comapny has been set according to the standards. Through the current capitals structure of the comapny, it has been analyzed that the cost of equity and the cost of debt of the comapny is 0.11492 and 0.028 whereas the weight is 0.29 and 0.70 which depict that the comapny could reduce the level of equity a bit to manage the cost as well as the risk of the comapny.
