I suggest including the reasons for the superiority of the NPV method over the DCF method, and including the concept of net present expected value. Nick Gardner 04:22, 5 December 2007 (CST)

On further reflection, I consider there is so much confusion in this article between the dcf and npv criteria for investment appraisal that it requires a complete rewrite with proper links to the articles on net present value and discount rate and the elimination of repetitions and inconsistencies with those articles. If nobody else wants to tackle it, I will put it on my to-do list.Nick Gardner 16:30, 25 February 2008 (CST)
