6 A project should earn sufficient return on the investment. The very idea of promoting a
project by an entrepreneur is to earn attractive returns on investment on the project.
If there are many alternative projects, all of which, at first sight, appear to be more or less
equal in profit earning capacity, the investor should make a comparative study of the
return on the different alternative proposals before choosing one. Such financial analysis
broadly falls under two categories. They are:
 No discounted cash flow techniques
 Discounted cash flow techniques

Explain the subdivisions within the above two categories.
