Investment term of the day: internal rate of return (IRR)
The internal rate of return (IRR) is used to measure and compare the profitability of investments. The rate shows how attractive a project is. If the IRR is higher than the desired rate of return on an investment this indicates a desirable opportunity.
IRR can be used to calculate expected returns on stocks and investments, including the yield to maturity on bonds.
