I'm not sure it's obvious what the question is. What 2 approaches are you comparing?

Typically a cashflow based pricing approach allows for much more variation in inputs as you're not having to force what'll happen in the real world to fit into whatever formulae you are using. But a more precise question would help...

Search for pricing methodology. I suspect you won't find much "formula based" - I'm not even sure what that is.
