Part 1. Capital Budgeting Practice Problems

a. Consider the project with the following expected cash flows:

Year Cash flow

0 - $550,000

1 $ 90,000

2 $100,000

3 $450,000

If the discount rate is 0%, what is the project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 4%, what is the project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 8%, what is the project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 10%, what is the project's net present value?

What is this project's internal rate of return?

Now draw (for yourself) a chart where the discount rate is on the horizontal axis (the "x" axis) and the net present value on the vertical axis (the Y axis). Plot the net present value of the project as a function of the discount rate by dots for the four discount rates. connect the four points using a free hand 'smooth' curve. The curve intersects the horizontal line at a particular discount rate. What is this discount rate at which the graph intersects the horizontal axis?

[You can't upload the graph unto Coursenet. Look at the graph you draw and write a short paragraph stating what the graph 'shows"]..

b. Consider a project with the expected cash flows:

Year Cash flow

0 - $315,000

1 + 71,000

2 + 150,000

3 + $150,000

What is this project's internal rate of return?

If the discount rate is 0%, what is this project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 4%, what is this project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 8%, what is this project's net present value?

If the discount rate is 12%, what is this project's net present value?

Now draw (for yourself) a chart where the discount rate is on the horizontal axis (the "x" axis) and the net present value on the vertical axis (the Y axis). Plot the net present value of the project as a function of the discount rate by dots for the four discount rates. connect the four points using a free hand 'smooth' curve. The curve intersects the horizontal line at a particular discount rate. What is this discount rate at which the graph intersects the horizontal axis? You can't upload the graph unto Coursenet. Observe the graph and write a short paragraph stating what the graph 'shows

c. A project requiring a $3.3 million investment has a profitability index of 0.96. What is its net present value? (Remember: Profitability Index is defined as Present Value of the proceeds divided by the initial investment)

Part 2.

Read the article linked below. Then write a paper answering the following question:

Which method do you think is the better one for making capital budgeting decisions - IRR or NPV?

Defend your answer with references to the background materials.
