MathW It doesn't make sense to me to say that WACC is based on market values if the target capital structure is unknown. If you click on the Check LOS, it explains "that is, the target capital structure is based on the current capital structure." That seems clear, but how is it synonymous with being based on market values on debt?
mazen1967 If you don't know the target capital structure, use the existing market value. The answer is correct.
edrei7 As analysts, we won't always know the actual values of the capital structure unless we have inside information. We can only estimate through the market.
