One Response to “CP042: Financial Analysis & Modeling concepts – 101”
I encourage my clients to focus on NPV rather than IRR. After all, IRR is simply the discount rate that makes NPV equal to zero. If I tell you that a certain investment will provide an IRR of six percent, you will probably ask me if that is a good return. My answer will be that it's a good investment if your cost of capital (expected return on an investment of equal risk) is less than six percent. Of course, if you knew your cost of capital, you would simply use that as your discount rate in an NPV analysis.
