The payback decision rule could override the accept decision indicated by the net present value.
In actual practice, managers frequently use the:
I. average accounting return method because the information is so readily available.
II. internal rate of return because the results are easy to communicate and understand.
III. discounted payback because of its simplicity.net present value because it is considered by many to be the best method of analysis.
Question Southern Chicken is considering two projects. Project A consists of creating an outdoor eating area on the unused portion of the restaurant's property. Project B would use that outdoor space for creating a drive-thru service window. When trying to decide which project to accept, the firm should rely most heavily on which one of the following analytical methods?
waiting until a machine finishes molding Product A before being able to mold Product B
assumes the firm has sufficient funds to undertake both projects
net present value
Which of the following statements generally apply to the cash flows of a financing type project?
I. nonconventional cash flows
II. cash outflows exceed cash inflows prior to any time value adjustments
III. cash for services rendered is received prior to the cash that is spent providing the services
IV. the total of all cash flows must equal zero on an unadjusted basis
I, II, and III only
a cash inflow at time zero
Which of the following statements related to the internal rate of return (IRR) are correct?
I. The IRR method of analysis can be adapted to handle non-conventional cash flows.
II. The IRR that causes the net present value of the differences between two project's cash flows to equal zero is called the crossover rate.
III. The IRR tends to be used more than net present value simply because its results are easier to comprehend.IV. Both the timing and the amount of a project's cash flows affect the value of the project's IRR.
I, II, III, and IV
Which of the following are considered weaknesses in the average accounting return method of project analysis?
