Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2NPV is in general a better measure. But here it is most emphatically better because it will tell you precisely how much cash the project will throw off. For example, suppose a company has $1,000 capital and the choice of only two nonreplicable projects: A, investment $100K, IRR = 50%, NPR = $1 million B, investment $1,000, IRR = 10%, NPV = $1.2 million Even though project A has a higher IRR, project B is preferable because it will give you more cash.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks. Moreover, if you use the MIRR you will have the same answer given by the NPV, i.e, the project B.
