The current weighted average cost a company faces for new or marginal dollar of capital.
It is not the average cost of dollars raised in the past.
Percentages of each capital component should be based on management's target capital structure.
Weights used in estimating the WACC should be based on market values, not book values.
Weights used in calculating WACC should also be based on expected future weights, which are the firm's target weights.
