Question

You are considering two mutually exclusive projects. Based upon risk, the appropriate discount rate for both projects is 10%. The first project has an IRR of 22% and an NPV of $22,432. The second project has an IRR of 12% and an NPV of $24,456. Which project should you select?

accept both projects since both are acceptable.

pick the project with the shorter payback period.

choose the project with the higher NPV.

unable to determine due to insufficient information.

choose the project with the higher IRR.

Answer #1

- NPV rule suggests that the project that should be picked should be with highest positive NPV
- IRR rule suggests that the project that should be picked should be with highest IRR
**When two methods give conflicting results it is suggested that NPV method is always better to go with, as IRR can be misleading and in case of projects with unconventional CFs, there can be multiple IRRs. So it is better to select the second project with higher NPV. So option 2 is the right option**- Nothing is mentioned about the payback period of the two projects So option is incorrect. is
- There is enough information to answer so option 3 is incorrect
- option 4 is incorrect as we need to ignore IRR

Briefly answer the questions that follow.
You are considering two mutually exclusive projects. The NPV
for project one is positive and higher than the NPV for project
two, while the IRR for project two is higher than that for project
one. Which project should the firm accept and why?
When does a project result in only one IRR? If a project has
more than one IRR, how can we use Excel to find the multiple
IRRs?
A diversified, low-risk firm...

You are trying to determine which of two mutually exclusive
projects to undertake. Both projects have the same initial outlay.
Project Adam has an NPV of $4,392.15, an IRR of 11.33%, and an EAA
of $1,158.64. Project Eve has an NPV of $5,833.73, an IRR of 9.88%,
and an EAA of $1,093.50. The cost of capital for both projects is
9%, the projects have different lives, and the projects are not
repeatable. What should you do?
You should do Project...

projects for the Bahamas Recreation Corporation. Both
projects require an annual return of 15 percent.
As a financial analyst for thecompany, you are asked the
following questions.
a.If your decision rule is to accept the project with the
greater IRR, which project should you choose? Explain why
