Raw Beta vs Adjusted Beta
Ramon, Consultant, Spain, Member
In my modest opinion, it is better to adjust the raw beta that arises from the division of the asset return covariance with market by the market return variance. Frequent adjustments are:
(1) towards beta=1, and
(2) to take into account the effect of the leverage of the company (relevered beta).

The cost of equity calculated with the raw beta will give you a cost of equity without the risk of the debt, in other words, it will give you the cost of equity of a unleveraged firm.
