Where does one find or how does one calculate Forward Enterprise Value to Sales?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mark,

Enterprise Value is simply the market cap adjusting for the net cash position (cash minus debt), so is higher for net debt companies (like Tesla) and lower for net cash companies (like NVDA, and especially Apple.....also Arista).

If you hadn't read before, here was my thread on EV/CF as a superior ratio to P/E from back in February.

long NVDA, AAPL, ANET
short TSLA

That reminds me, I think it was you who posted a list that had P/S and EV/S ratios. It prompted me to think of using the delta or a ratio of those 2 ratios for a valuation adjustment of some sort, but I didn't get around to finishing that thought nor replying.
