Calculating the net present value of an investment (NPV): Excel 2013: Financial Functions in Depth

The Net Present Value of an investment is the present value of the investment minus the amount of money it costs to buy into the investment. All of the investment’s cash flows must occur at the same interval for the calculation to be accurate. If all of the investments have the same level of risk, then you should go with the investments with the highest net present value.
