Investors can use the concept of the present value of money to determine whether future cash flows of an investment or project are equal to or greater than the value of the initial investment. In order to conduct a DCF analysis, an investor must make estimates about future cash flows and the ending value of the investment, equipment, or other assets. An investor must also determine an appropriate discount rate for the DCF model, which will vary depending on the project or investment under consideration.
If the investor cannot access the future cash flows, or the project is very complex, DCF will not have much value and alternative models should be employed. Investing Strategy. Financial Analysis.

The beginning months of were filled with various concert dates in and around the New York City area.
During this time, the band recorded a collection of demos, titled The Majesty Demos. The initial run of 1, sold out within six months, and dubbed copies of the cassette became popular within the progressive metal scene.
In November , after a few months of writing and performing together, Chris Collins was fired. Shortly after hiring Dominici, a Las Vegas group also named Majesty  threatened legal action for intellectual property infringement related to the use of their name, so the band was forced to adopt a new moniker. Various possibilities were proposed and tested, among them Glasser, Magus, and M1, which were all rejected, though the band did go as Glasser for about a week, with poor reactions from fans.
With their new name and band stability, Dream Theater concentrated on writing more material while playing more concerts in New York and in neighboring states. Dream Theater signed their first record contract with Mechanic on June 23,  and set out to record their debut album. Recording the basic tracks took about 10 days, and the entire album was completed in about 3 weeks. When Dream and Day Unite was released in to far less fanfare than the band had anticipated.
Mechanic ended up breaking the majority of the financial promises they had made to Dream Theater prior to signing their contract, so the band was restricted to playing around New York City. The promotional tour for the album consisted of just five concerts, all of which were relatively local. After the fourth show, Charlie Dominici was let go because the band was starting to feel the limitations of his voice based upon the vocal style they wanted.
Shortly after, however, the band Marillion asked Dream Theater to open for them at a gig at the Ritz in New York, so Dominici was given the opportunity to perform one last time. In their search for a new singer, they auditioned over people, among them former Fates Warning front man John Arch. John ultimately decided that his personal commitments were more important and he opted not to join the band.
Stone had successfully recorded demos with Dream Theater, but he was fired following a single, ill-fated live performance. According to Mike Portnoy, Stone moved around the stage in a rather odd manner, seemingly doing a bad impression of Bruce Dickinson. Additionally, he shouted "Scream for me Long Beach! Until , the band remained focused in an attempt to hire another singer and writing additional music. The band was so impressed by his demo that he was flown from Canada to New York for an audition.
LaBrie jammed on three songs with the band, and was immediately hired to fill the vocalist position. Once recruited, LaBrie decided to drop his first name to avoid confusion with the other Kevin in the band. For the next few months, the band returned to playing live shows still mostly around NYC , while working on vocal parts for the music written before acquiring LaBrie.
The first album to be recorded under their new record contract was Images and Words For promotion, the label released a CD Single and video clip for the song " Another Day ", but neither made significant commercial impact. The song " Pull Me Under ", however, managed to garner a high level of radio airplay without any organized promotion from the band or their label. A third video clip was produced for " Take the Time ", but it was not nearly as successful as "Pull Me Under".
The success of "Pull Me Under", combined with relentless touring throughout the U. Additionally, a video compilation of their Japanese concerts mixed in with documentary-style footage of the off-stage portion of the tour was released as Images and Words: Live in Tokyo.
Eager to work on fresh material, Dream Theater retreated to the studio in May Shortly before the album was mixed, Moore had announced to the rest of the band that he would be quitting Dream Theater to concentrate on his own musical interests, since he was no longer interested in touring or the style of music which Dream Theater performed. The two invited him to play a trial gig with the band at the Concrete Foundations Forum in Burbank, California.
Once again finding themselves with a new member, the band did not immediately start working on new material. Fans around the world, united on the YtseJam Mailing List the most popular form of communication between Dream Theater fans at that point , had begun to put pressure on the band to officially release the song " A Change of Seasons ".
This had been written in and was intended to be a part of Images and Words , but at almost 17 minutes, it was deemed too long for studio placement. It had nevertheless been performed live by the band, who continued to revise it in the years leading up to The petition was successful, and the group entered BearTracks Studios in New York in May to rewrite and record the now minute-long song with Sherinian contributing significantly to the final product.
They continued releasing a new CD each Christmas until As a result, the new team at the company were unaccustomed to the relationship Dream Theater had with former East West personnel, and they pressured them to write an album that was more accessible. In mid, they entered the studio to write their next album. The whole band substantially reworked the song, and it appeared on the album as "You Not Me" with a chorus that bore little resemblance to the original.
Child also had a noticeable impact on the album, with a shift towards less complex and more radio-friendly compositions. The Miracle and the Sleeper". The label, however, did not allow the release of a double album because it felt that a minute record would not be well received by the general public.
James LaBrie also felt that the CD should be a single disc. While the album was moderately progressive-sounding, tracks such as " Hollow Years " and "You Not Me" prompted some to believe it was the dawn of a new, mainstream-sounding Dream Theater.
Overall, the album was both a critical and commercial disappointment. Although Portnoy did not speak out publicly at the time, he later revealed in the DVD commentary for 5 Years in a Livetime , that he had been so discouraged during this period that he had considered disbanding Dream Theater altogether. The band assumed the name Liquid Tension Experiment , and would act as a medium through which Portnoy and Petrucci could once again court Rudess to join Dream Theater.
In , he accepted an offer to become the third full-time Dream Theater keyboardist, replacing Sherinian. With yet another new member, Dream Theater entered BearTracks Studio once again to write and record their next album. As a result of an ultimatum from Portnoy, the label gave the band complete creative control.
The band began by revisiting the follow-up to "Metropolis—Part I", which had been partially written during the Falling into Infinity sessions but which had not been completed or used on that album. They decided to expand the minute song into a complete concept album , with a story revolving around themes such as reincarnation, murder and betrayal. To avoid stirring up the fan base, a tight veil of secrecy enveloped the writing and recording process.
In , Metropolis Pt. The album was mixed by David Bottrill , but only a few of his mixes made it on the final album. The bulk was remixed by Kevin Shirley , who had produced Falling into Infinity.
The subsequent Metropolis world tour was by far their largest to date, and took over a year to complete. The concerts reflected the theatrical aspect of the album, with the first half of each show comprising the entire Scenes From a Memory album accompanied by a film showing dramatized portions of the story projected onto a video screen behind the stage.
For the last date of the North American leg, at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, actors were hired to play characters in the story, and a gospel choir was enlisted to perform in some sections of the performance. Since several songs from the second half of the four-hour show had to be cut from the DVD to save space, the band also released the full show on the live CD Live Scenes from New York. In an unfortunate coincidence, the album was released on the same date as the September 11 attacks.
Putting the whole ordeal behind them, Dream Theater once again entered BearTracks Studios to record their sixth studio album. Four years after they first petitioned East West to allow them to release a double album, they finally got their chance with Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence.
The first disc consisted of five tracks of 7—13 minutes in length, and the second disc was devoted entirely to the minute title track, which remains to date the longest song Dream Theater has written.
Those themes were then expanded by the rest of the band to form individual chapters in a complete story. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Historical Journal of Film Radio and Television. Turner Classic Movies. Retrieved January 7, Retrieved November 26, Rotten Tomatoes.
