Discounting cash flows back to 2015--use mid-year discounting?
Hey all, quick question about DCF valuation. If you're valuing a company right now (mid-2015), do you discount cash flows back to 2015, or do you account for the fact that it's the middle of the year? In other words, should you discount back to 2015.5?
Thank you all in advance!
