Question

You are considering an investment with the following cash flows. If the required rate of return for this investment is 16.5 percent, should you accept the investment based solely on the internal rate of return rule? Why or why not?

Year: 0, 1, 2, 3

Cash Flow: -152000, 98,200, 102,300, -4,900

A. |
Yes; The IRR exceeds the required return. |

B. |
Yes; The IRR is less than the required return. |

C. |
No; The IRR is less than the required return. |

D. |
No; The IRR exceeds the required return. |

E. |
You cannot apply the IRR rule in this case. |

Answer #1

Let the IRR be x.

Now , Present Value of Cash Outflows=Present Value of Cash Inflows

152,000 = 98,200 /(1.0x) + 102,300 / (1.0x)^2 -4,900/ (1.0x)^3

Or x= 18.920%

Hence the IRR is 18.92%

The required rate of return for this investment is 16.5 percent and hence the IRR is clearly greater than the required rate of return for this investment.

As per the IRR Rule, if the IRR is greater than the required rate of return, the investment must be accepted.

Hence the correct answer is **A. Yes; The IRR exceeds the
required return.**

Given the following end of year cash flows (CF) estimate the
internal rate of return (IRR) of this project. If the project’s
cost of capital is 10%, would you undertake this project?
Timeline 0 1 2 3 4 CF 0 700 700 700 -3,000
Group of answer choices
No; IRR = 18.93%
Yes; IRR = 18.93%
No; IRR = 7.50%
Yes, IRR is greater than the cost of capital

Cutler Petroleum, Inc., is trying to evaluate a generation
project with the following cash flows:
Year Cash Flow
0 –$ 85,000,000
1 125,000,000
2 – 15,000,000
A. If the company requires a 10% return on its investment should
it accept this project? Why?
b.Compare the project IRR for this project. How many IRRs are
there? If you should apply the IRR division rule. Should you accept
the project or not.? What's going on here?

Q5
A company is considering a project that is expected to produce the
following cash flows over the next five years: $22,500, $27,900,
$41,800, $33,000, and $15,000 respectively. The company has $98,000
available, which is the amount needed to initiate the project.
Should the company accept this project if the required rate of
return is 12%? Why or why not?
Question 5 options: No; The IRR is 13.47%, which is greater than
the required return.
Yes; The PI is.96, which...

8. Modified internal rate of return (MIRR)
The IRR evaluation method assumes that cash flows from the
project are reinvested at the same rate equal to the IRR. However,
in reality the reinvested cash flows may not necessarily generate a
return equal to the IRR. Thus, the modified IRR approach makes a
more reasonable assumption other than the project's IRR.
Consider the following situation :
Cute Camel Woodcraft Company is analyzing a project that
requires an initial investment of $3,225,000....

Which of the following statements is correct:
A. projects with unconventional cash flows have multiple
internal rates of return
B. if 2 projects are mutually exclusive, you should select the
project with the shortest payback period
C. If the IRR exceeds the required return, the profitability
index will be less than 1.0
D. the Profitability index will be greater than 1.0 when the net
present value is negative
E. when the internal rate of return is greater than the required...

You are considering two independent projects with the following
cash flows. The required return for both projects is 10%. Given
this information, which one of the following statements is
correct?
Year Project A Project B
0 -950,000 -125,000
1 330,000
55,000
2 400,000
50,000
3 450,000
50,000
You should accept project B because it has the higher IRR and
reject project A
You should accept project A because it has the higher NPV and
you can not accept both projects
You should accept...
