    Nice may want to try using the prevailing market value for all sources of capital. Market value reflects the true economic claim.

    Hi Lester,

    You might want to try using the market value of the firm's equity to calculate the percentage in the WACC calculation and see where that gets you. Market value is a true reflection of the economic claim; this would also apply to debt and preferred (not applicable in this case) too.

  • The Energy Department is reviewing 16 applications for liquefied natural gas export terminals and could begin making decisions early this year. Big gas users, such as DOW, EMN and NUE, which have benefited from the fall in energy prices via the shale gas boom, join together to keep U.S. gas in the U.S. Blocking such exports would help those few but hurt many more, Michael Economides writes. [View news story]
    I agree with Mike Maher, those who would resort to autarky are not thinking clearly. Natural gas exports will create jobs and business opportunities at storage terminals, pipelines, LNG plants etc,,, all privately funded, while at the same time add to GDP.

    Those who think hoarding is the better option forget there are both supply and demand forces at work. With or without exports natural gas producers will shutter production if prices fall below the marginal cost of production thus creating a pricing floor. Foreign exports could bring price stability and on balance be a net positive to both consumers and producers.

    Not to nit-pick but a higher Debt/EBITDA ratio is considered less desirable. Currently that ratio is in the 2.8 vicinity.
