Perhaps a hybrid of the IRR that assumes cost Perhaps of capital reinvestment is needed. of Is there a better IRR measure? Is Yes, MIRR is the discount rate that causes the Yes, PV of a project’s terminal value (TV) to equal the PV of costs. TV is found by compounding inflows at WACC. WACC MIRR assumes cash flows are reinvested at the MIRR WACC. WACC.
