CAGR Calculator is used to calculate the Compound Annual Growth Rate, a quick way to smooth out an investment’s returns

- CAGR:

The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR)`..`

Background Information

- What does Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) mean?
- The average rate at which the investment grows over a certain period of time is called its compound annual growth rate (assuming that the value has been compounded over that particular time period).

- Importance of CAGR
- CAGR is often used to calculate the average growth of single investment over a particular period. It can be applied in comparing return on the equity with bonds or saving accounts. It can be used to forecast the future growth of two companies and compare their performance based on the historical data.

- Formula
#### WACC Formula

The extended formula is the exact formula you can use on the inputs to calculate WACC. It is more verbose than the simplified formula.

CAGR = `100 * ((e / b) ^ (1 / n) - 1)`

Where:-

**b**= beginning value**e**= ending value**n**= years

- Example
Let’s assume that an investment is starts a value of $1000. It grows to $1500 in a span $1 years. Then, according to the formula:-

- `100 * ((e / b) ^ (1 / n) - 1)`
- `100 * ((1500 / 1000) ^ (1 / 1) - 1)`
- `100 * (1.5 ^ 1 - 1)`
- `100 * (1.5 - 1)`
- `100 * 0.5`
- CAGR = `50`
