    5.37%

    Explanation:

    According to the scenario, computation of the given data are as follow:-

    We can calculate the company's after tax return on preferred by using following formula:-

    Company's After Tax Return = Before Tax Dividend Yield Rate on Preferred Stock * [1 - (1 - Dividend Exclusive) * (Tax Rate) ]

    = 6% * [1 - (1 - 70%) * (35%) ]

    = 0.06 * [1 - (1 - 0.70) * (0.35) ]

    = 0.06 * [1 - (0.30) * (0.35) ]

    = 0.06 * (1 - 0.105)

    = 0.0537

    = 5.37%

    We simply applied the above formula to determine the company after tax return
