Technology, Media, and Telecom (TMT) Companies
Technology, media, and telecom (TMT) is a high-level industry sector. This industry covers a wide array of firms that are similar because they devote significant efforts to research and development (R&D). Companies that sell hardware, software, internet, and mobile phones are all considered TMT firms. Microsoft, Apple, Google, and AT&T are all examples of TMT firms. TMT firms are put into sub-categories since there are so many different types of firms. Many of these also firms use some sort of subscription model so it is important to use a model that considers this, such as CFI's TMT financial model template.
Discounted Cash Flow Analysis
By discounting cash flows, we can capture the economic value of the company. Alternatively, if we discounted net income instead, it would give a misleading image of the company. For example, it is possible for a company to have positive net income but negative cash flow. In this case, the company is actually losing money, but that would not be accurately portrayed if we used net income instead of cash flow.
