Welcome to The Motley Fool, trainwrecker,could someone inform me on how to calculate a price to cash flow.Divide a company's market capitalization (number of shares times share price) by its cash flow for the latest fiscal year.Quote the Fool, "Cash flow is literally the cash that flows through a company during the course of a quarter or the year after taking out all fixed expenses. Cash flow is normally defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA)."Here's an example of calculating price-to-cash flow for Coca-Cola (KO) using their 1999 annual report (figures are as of 1999 year end):Number of Shares - 2,470,000,000Share Price - $58.25Cash Flow - $2,332,000,000Number of Shares * Share Price / Cash Flow = Price-to-Cash Flow2,470,000,000 * 58.25 / 2,332,000,000 = 61.7Hope This Helps,CaseyP.S.
