Chapter 13 Lecture Notes Capital Budgeting Decisions CAPITAL BUDGETING—PLANNING INVESTMENTS Screening decisions -Project must meet a minimum requirement to be acceptable -Required rate of return is the minimum rate of return (hurdle rate, cut-off rate, or cost of capital) the project must yield. -The minimum rate of return is used as the discount rate in NPV to determine if the project passes the screening decision. Preference decisions -Best choice of all alternatives The Time Value of Money “A dollar today is worth more than a dollar a year from now.” DISCOUNTED CASH FLOWS—THE NET PRESENT VALUE METHOD (p. 581.) 1.
