Cash flow and Risk
Future value corresponds to future and uncertain business cash flows, Ct. So we discount expected cash flows
Present Value = -------------
t=0 (1 + k)t
Because business cash flows occur over many future periods, we locate them in time, then discount and add them all.
Because business cash flows are risky, investors demand a higher return: the discount rate, k, contains a risk premium.
Value = Cash Flowt
t=0 (1 + Cost of Capital)t
