The thing about WACC is that, like intrinsic value, it's really important and hard to calculate.

I think that this has been an interesting thread. While we may not be able to calculate some of these numbers accurately, I think the posts in this thread have led me to the following conclusion.

If you are using historical ROE (over say the last 10 years) as one (of several) measures to assess a company, then looking for an average ROE greater than some cutoff in the region of 15% to 20% seems like a sensible number.
