is slightly more advantages as being compared to the IRR method. Both has its own pros and cons; however, the cons of the IRR method weighs heavier and drastically. The heavy catch is that discount rates almost usually change significantly over a period of time, and the IRR method is solely based upon one internal rate of return. Not only that, the basic IRR calculation is completely ineffective when it is evaluating a project with a mixture of multiple positive and negative cash flows. In this case, a single internal rate of return [IRR] cannot possibly be used. IRR is the discount rate that makes a project break even, in the first place. If the market changes its condition over a period of time, this project can have two [or more] IRRs, which is a disaster. NPV and IRR usually have the same acceptance or rejection decisions for projects that are independent; so IRR can just as well be used alongside NPV when independent projects are being evaluated. The conflict only appears when the projects are mutually exclusive. Question G [1] The modified internal rate of return [MIRR] is the modification of the internal rate of return [IRR] and it aims to solve the shortcomings or problems in relation with the internal rate of return [IRR]. The true definition of MIRR is, the discount rate that compares present value…
The Internal Rate of Return According to Berk & DeMarzo (2016), the internal rate of return abbreviated as IRR and also known as the yield on investment refers to the discount rate that equates the NPV (net present value) of the proposed investment to zero (0). That is, the future cash flows of the investment plan equal the initial capital outlay of the project. The technique analyzes an investment plan by comparing the yield on investment to the minimum hurdle rate of a company. Like the NPV…

He also states that the yield curve illustrates how the returns of bonds and maturity changes over time.

and return tradeoff, where if there is high risk it will compensate with high return as well as the low risk with lower return. The risk can be classified into two types which are systematic (uncontrollable) risk and unsystematic (controllable) risk.

Meanwhile, the example of unsystematic risk is business risk, liquidity risk and credit risk. However,…

about investing in markets. While they do share some similarities, there are also significant differences one needs to be aware of, such as how the investment works, the outside forces that influence value, liquidity, and the markets where they are traded.
