The fundamental structure of the present theory of asset pricing underscored clarifying the
path as to how the systematic risk is estimated and how investors are adapted to behavior for
such risk. The mixed expense of debt and equity that an association should procure to raise funds for its
assignments impacts its stock returns through investment choices and is an additional significant segment of
business valuation work on the grounds that for putting resources into more risky resources, investors request
better yields or higher returns, for legitimizing better yields this risk premium emerging from such risks is
included in the returns. Hence, in clarifying portfolio returns, the three-factor model is increased with WACC
to analyze its logical force that if WACC is estimated by the market or not through multivariate regressions.
Two principle results are deduced by the examination; first; the findings attest to the presence of market
premium, size impact, value impact, WACC premium in the equity market of Pakistan. Second, however
generally exciting with exceptional interest, when contrasted with FF unique 3-factor model, the models which
join WACC outperformed, which also affirmed from Adj.R2 results.
