Research in multiple internal rate of return (MROR) has mainly focused on three areas: uniqueness, conditions where MROR occur, and solutions to MROR. In an attempt to solve for MROR, researchers have assumed that the occurrence of MROR is prevalent and thus a solution is direly needed. This article examines the probability that positive MROR would occur when variation is incorporated into the cash flow and the probability of getting positive MROR when multiple sign-change cash flow is generated. Results show that the probability of positive MROR occurring in multiple sign-change cash flows is relatively low and potentially a rare event.
