10 Big Named Companies With Huge Free Cash Flows @Ycharts

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. U.S. Bancorp (USB): Market Cap $70.39B, Free Cash Flow $17.41B – P/FCF 3.937

  1. Separating operating and financing activities is nearly impossible when it comes to banks because interest, investments, and debt (a funding source) are related to the company’s core operations. So concepts like “working capital” and “free cash flow” are not applicable.

    You might want to amend your post to exclude the 2 banks.
