price to cash flow ratio
A measure of a company's projected profitability, calculated by dividing price per share by cash flow per share (or market capitalization by cash flow). Like the price to earnings ratio (P/E), comparing a company's price to cash flow ratio to other companies within its sector can show how a company performs relative to its competitors. A lower ratio represents an expectation of greater profitability. See cash flow statement.
