Hi MrT,

Thanks for the link. It helps, but I'm asking something different. Assuming I have a discount rate (Hewitt's 10 yr bond + 5%, for instance), I'm looking for the rationale behind determining the equity weighting vs. debt.

In the book, Hewitt uses the value of Stockholder's Equity, where literally every other publication I've seen uses current market value (market cap).

Regards
