Capital budgeting with an efficient yield-based method: the real rate of return technique
We develop a yield-based capital budgeting method that solves the inconsistencies of the internal rate of return (IRR) and its alternatives with the shareholders' wealth maximization objective. We thus provide an efficient technique for managers who exhibit in practice a large preference for comparing the merits of projects with rates of return. This new method, called the real rate of return (RRR), is an improvement of the modified internal rate of return (MIRR) based on the Fisher equation. Simple and fitting with managers' needs and way of thinking, the RRR has all the qualities to be accepted in practice.
