Concepts of time value of money The concept of time value of money lies in the argument that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar in the future. This is mainly because money loses value over time due to many different factors. One of the factors that affect the value of money is inflation. Interest rate is another factor that affects the value of money. Fisher (2006) argues that inflation has an effect on the value of money because it reduces the buying power of money. Concepts about time value of money tries to put into consideration the financial decisions by enabling financial analysts to convert the different cash flows from the different time periods into present or future values.

Given this information I determined the formula best to use is the future value interest of an annuity stream. Of the 3 method’s, I prefer to use: FVIFA= FUTURE VALUE INTEREST FACTOR OF AN ANUNUITY PMT= CASH FLOW PAYMENT N= # OF PAYMENTS R= INTEREST RATE Now we can input our data into the…

starts with how long it takes to recover the amount of money put into the project. It’s overall better for the payback period to be shorter in the long run. There is payback methods listed for four alternative projects related. For instance, in each project the initial outlay is $8,000. Therefore, by the end of 2015 projects one and two have recovered the initial $8,000 investment, (Finkler, S.A., Ward, D.M. & Calabrese, I.D., 2013). As a result, a payback period of 3 years is the amount of…

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 method, internal rate of return also puts into consideration the time value of money, where it discounts the future inflows. The…

If the investors become more willing to hold bonds due to economic uncertainty, then the bond prices will rise which will reduce the yield (Ross, 2016). In this…
Introduction The need for relevant information and analysis of capital budgeting alternatives has inspired the evolution of a series of models to assist firms in making the "best" allocation of resources. Capital budgeting is determining how much “the firm pay to finance its operations using debt and equity sources?” (Coo, 2024, p. 373). It helps the company decide which projects will be profitable and when a return can be expected. Adjusted Present Value (APV) and Net Present Value (NPV) Net…
Using this equation, if I were to take $30,000 of that salary this year and invest it with an interest rate of 5% for ten years, I will have about $48,867 at the end of ten years, whereas, if I wait four years, and then invest $30,000, I will only have $40,203. That is a difference of $8,664, just in four years. Of course, this is just random numbers I am using for examples, and I have simplified for demonstration purposes, but my point remains the same: the sooner I start earning (and saving),…
