# 31 the npv method computes the present value of all expected future cash flows from 4308133

31) The NPV method computes the present value of all expected future cash flows from a project using a maximum desired rate of return.

32) Under the NPV method, the higher the risk of a project, the lower the desired rate of return.

33) The minimum desired rate of return for an investment under the NPV method is based on the cost of capital.

34) If a company accepts a project with a positive NPV, the project will increase the value of the firm.

35) When choosing among several investments, managers should pick the project with the lowest net present value.

36) The lower the minimum desired rate of return, the lower the present value of each future cash inflow from an investment.

37) When using an NPV model, a world of uncertainty is assumed.

38) When using the NPV model, it is assumed that the capital markets are perfect.

39) In the absence of taxes, depreciation expense on a long-term asset is a relevant cash flow for the NPV model.

40) The IRR model determines the interest rate at which the NPV of an investment equals zero.

41) If the internal rate of return on a project is less than the minimum desired rate of return, the project is not desirable.

42) If the internal rate of return on a project exceeds the minimum desired rate of return, then the NPV is positive.
