Calculating an investment’s internal rate of return enables you to identify the interest rate at which the investment future cash flows have a net present value of zero. In other words, your formula tells you the discount rate at which you would break even on a given investment. If the IRR formula returns a value greater than the interest rate of riskfree investments, you should take the plunge.
