This week we take a look at some big named companies that generate huge ‘free’ cash flows compared to their market cap, using the price to free cash flow ratio (P/FCF).
Price to free cash flow (P/FCF) is an valuation metric that compares a company’s per-share market price to its free cash flow (FCF). This metric is very similar to the valuation metric of price to cash flow but is considered a more exact measure because it uses free cash flow, which subtracts capital expenditures (CAPEX) from a company’s total operating cash flow, thereby reflecting the actual cash flow available to fund non-asset-related growth.
Here’s 10 big named companies with huge free cash flows compared to their market cap:
1. JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM): Market Cap $333.36B, Free Cash Flow $80.04B – P/FCF 4.32
