Payback Period is the amount of time in periods it would take to pay back the original investment amount.
Profitability Index (PI) is the present value of a project’s cash inflows divided by the initial cash outflow.
PI= (CF1/(1+r)^1+ CF2/(1+r)^2+…+ CFN/(1+r)^N)/CF0
Ranking conflict of NPV vs. IRR,
Sunk costs are the cost already spent and are not recoverable.
