Abstract

En el presente artículo demostramos que la evaluación de proyectos debería basarse en free cash flow a precios nominales. Presentamos un caso en el que los resultados obtenidos a partir de la aplicación de un método de precio constante se inclinan hacia arriba, por lo que existe el riesgo de aceptar malos proyectos. Es una práctica extendida evaluar proyectos a un precio constante. Evaluamos esta metodología a través de un ejemplo presentado en un curso de formación sobre regulación económica de las empresas de servicios públicos, desarrollado por el Instituto del Banco Mundial. Identificamos una sobrevaloración del 21% cuando se compara con la metodología de los precios actuales, usando un correcto costo promedio del capital (WACC por sus siglas en inglés).
