Net present valueA calculation which is based on the idea that £1 received in ten years' time is not worth as much as £1 received now because the £1 received now could be invested for those ten years and compound into a higher value.The NPV calculation establishes what the value of future earnings is in today's money. To do the calculation you apply a discount % rate to the future earnings. The further out the earnings are (in years) the more reduced their present value is.NPV is at the heart of securities analysis. Analysts use predictions of a company's future earnings and dividend payments, appropriately discounted back to current value, to establish a 'fundamental' value for the shares. If the current share price is below that value, then the shares are, on the face of it, attractive, If lower, they are 'overvalued'. In practice the analysis is more sophisticated, but it is based on the concept of NPV.

To determine the present value, each future cash flow is multiplied by a present value factor. For example, if the opportunity cost of funds is 10%, the present value of $100 to be received in one year is $100 x [1/(1 + 0.10)] = $91.
