Project S has a cost of $10,000 and is expected to produce benefits (cash flows) of $3,000 per year for 5 years. Project L costs $25,000 and is expected to produce cash flows of $7,400 per year for 5 years. Calculate the two projectsâ€™ NPVs, IRRs, MIRRs, and PIs, assuming a cost of capital of 12%. Which project would be selected, assuming they are mutually exclusive, using each ranking method? Which should actually be selected?

Buena Vision Clinic is considering an investment that requires an outlay of 600,000 and promises a net cash inflow one year from now of 810,000. Assume the cost of capital is 10 percent. Required: 1. Break the 810,000 future cash inflow into three components: a. The return of the original investment b. The cost of capital c. The profit earned on the investment 2. Now, compute the present value of the profit earned on the investment. 3. Compute the NPV of the investment. Compare this with the present value of the profit computed in Requirement 2. What does this tell you about the meaning of NPV?
