|Author||Topic: Market Value of Equity in WACC|
|Is the market value of Equity the same thing as Market Capitalization? Market Price per share * # of shares outstanding?|
|I dont think so. MVE is the value of all issued shares (including treasury and preferred), while market cap is only outstanding common shares. I think thats accurate.|
|MVE is WACC = market cap of common stock
For the CFA exam, thats all you need to know.
The point in WACC is that debt and equity weights are based on market values.
