why is WACC important to an organization?
b. What impact does WACC have on capital budgeting and structure?

    "Weighted Average Cost of Capital is the return a firm must earn on existing assets to keep its stock price constant and satisfy its creditors and owners."

    That quote is from

    You may be able to find more help at that site. It is not an area I am familiar with.
