Another simple discussion 200-300 words. Please answer topic directly
How accurate do you think a company’s estimates of the net present value of a proposed project are? Refer to both the initial investment and to the components of the cash flow: revenues, operating expenses, depreciation, taxes, and the cost of capital to use for the computation of the present value.
Keep in mind that NPV is the value in today’s dollars of cash flows to be received some time in the future minus what we have to pay today to get those cash flows.
Which of the following do you think would give you the most accurate NPV calculation: (a) a brand new retail startup (b) a pharmaceutical company introducing a new drug (c) a company with a successful product in Chile trying to introduce it to the USA.
