Subject:  I have the cash flow; now what? Date:  5/18/2000  12:39 PM

I have read the article "What Is Free Cash Flow?" by Bill Mann. Pretty straightforward. My question is - what do I do with the cash flow figure once I have it calculated? Do I compare it with some other item in the financial statements, or compute a ratio of some kind, or what? What is a "good" free cash flow, and what isn't? Thanks.
