Corporate financial managers continually invest funds in assets, and these assets produce income and cash flows that the firm can then either reinvest in more assets or distribute to the owners
of the firm. Capital investment refers to the firm’s investment in assets, and these investments may be either short term or long term in nature. Capital budgeting decisions involve the long-term commitment
of a firm’s scarce resources in capital investments. When such a decision is made, the firm is committed to a current and possibly future outlay of funds....

Identiﬁcation and estimation (including forecasting) of cash ﬂows, project appraisal formulae and the application of net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR) and other project evaluation criteria are illustrated with a variety of calculation examples.
Financing new equipment -- from computers to phone systems to capital equipment and other gear you need to run your company -- is a major issue for many small business owners. Leasing, instead of purchasing, can be a cost-effective option, particularly if you don't have the cash on hand, but need the equipment.
In fact, you might want to consider leasing even if you do have the cash to invest. By leasing, you might find that you can regulate your cash flow more effectively, because you have predictable, regular monthly installments as opposed to a single lump sum payment. Plus, leasing......

Private investors may need to isolate their cash flows to debt , usually only a single mortgage, from the cash flows to equity, usually their savings. Private investors may need this information to record any shortfall between rent received and loan interest, for personal income tax measurement.
Although we use the term “cash flow”, the dollar values used might not be the same as the actual cash amounts.
In some instances, actual ‘market prices’ do not reflect the true
value of the project’s input or output.
Once we have determined the relevant cash-flow information necessary to make capital budgeting decisions, we need to evaluate the attractiveness of the various investment proposals under consideration. The investment decision will be to either accept or reject each proposal. In this chapter we study alternative methods of project evaluation and selection. In addition, we address some of the potential difficulties encountered in trying to implement these methods.
After studying chapter 14, you should be able to: Define the “riskiness” of a capital investment project; understand how cash-flow riskiness for a particular period is measured, including the concepts of expected value, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation; describe methods for assessing total project risk, including a probability approach and a simulation approach.
