Assuming a beta of 1.5 and a U.S. risk-free rate (normalized) of 4.0% (Duff & Phelps recommended guidance) and using your spreadsheet for the ERP (US = 5.69%) and CRP (Paraguay = 3.55%), I get 16.1%, as follows: <br /><br />ke, Paraguay = Rf, US + (Beta,US x ERP,US) + CRP<br />ke, Paraguay = 4.0% + (1.5 x 5.69) + 3.55%<br />ke, Paraguay = 16.1%<br /><br />Are the mechanics correct?
