what does cash flow refer to in a company snapshot i.e. cash flow ttm .47%

Dear Dad,

You need to refine your question. First, where are you getting your information? "Snapshot" is a generic term used by numerous websites (e.g., the Fool, Yahoo!, etc.) to give a quick glimpse at a company's financial condition.

You could be looking at any of dozens of websites. Please make things easier on us.

Second, ".47%" appears to make no sense. If you can point me to the website I can tell you if it is a typo, at least.

Finally, "ttm" is the only thing I can actually help you with. It means "trailing 12 months". In other words, from 9 June 2003 through today, CNS had "x" amount of cash flow.
