## STATUS

A company is considering two investment opportunities. Both cost $5,000 and will provide future cash flows of $8,000. The cash flows for Investment A for the next 4 years are: $1,000, $1,000, $2,000 and $4,000. The cash flows for Investment B for the next 4 years are: $1,000, $2,000, $3,000 and $2,000. Assume a required rate of return of 10%. Using NPV as the evaluation method, the company should choose:

Of the four capital budgeting methods, which two reflect the time value of money?

If a company uses straight-line depreciation, the annual average investment can be calculated as:

List the steps involved in capital budgeting decisions, with the first step on top.
