Crossover rate

(redirected from Crossover Rates)

Crossover rate

The return at which two alternative projects have the same net present value.

Crossover Rate

When comparing two different but similar projects, the specific returns required for the projects to have the same net present value. Because two similar securities may have different volatility, calculating the crossover rate helps to determine which will be more profitable in the short and long terms. For example, one dotcom company may achieve a steady rate of growth, but only slowly over time, while a second dotcom may achieve the same returns in a shorter timeframe, but with greater vulnerability to market downturns. Calculating the rate at which each will achieve a desired net present value, assuming no massive changes in circumstances, may help an investor make decisions regarding which to buy and which to sell.
