Smith and Jones has two separate divisions. Division X produces custom work on a pre-paid basis only for long-term customers and therefore, is subject to less risk than division Y.

The company has a debt-equity ratio of .65 and a tax rate of 35 percent. The cost of equity is 9 percent and the aftertax cost of debt is 5 percent. Presently, each division is considering a new project. Division Y's project provides a 9.5 percent rate of return and division X's project provides a 6.2 percent return. Which projects, if either, should the company accept?




a. accept both X and Y
b. accept X and reject Y
c. reject X and accept Y
