Hi folks, I am trying to find suitable WACC or discount rates that should be used for large tech companies? Is there a reliable site that shows what numbers these companies usually use?

^ It wouldn't be correct since there may be significant differences in capital structure, growth potential, market dynamics etc.

Some companies provide their WACC in the notes to the financial statements. You can always start from there. Good luck.


Calculate it yourself or check on a bloomberg terminal?


i don't have access to bloomberg...so anything else? say if I just want to find sample ones, like what have people used to value Microsoft, what have analysts used to value Apple, etc?
