You should delay a decision until you have more information on the projects, even if this means that a competitor might come in and capture this market.,c. You should recommend Project L, because at the new WACC, it will have the higher NPV.,d. You should recommenbd Project S, because at the new WACC, it will have the higher NPV.,e.
