Why You Should Look At These 16 Stocks With Cheap Free Cash Flows

When you put money into the market, you should be aware of the market valuation. One of the major problems in valuation is definitely to predict future cash-flows.

Nobody of us has a crystal-ball and no one can predict the future.

The second problem is that there are companies that must invest massively into the business model in order to boost growth or to replace old machines or buildings.

Investors often calculate with free cash flows. Those are the real income of the company, available for dividends, buybacks or mergers and acquisitions.

Today I like to introduce the cheapest Dividend Achievers with a low price to free cash flow of less than 15.

16 companies fulfilled my criteria of which four have a dividend yield over 3 percent. The most of the results come from the property and casualty insurance industry.

Insurer generates massive cash but they have also big problems with decreasing premiums and increasing competition. There are always good reasons why some companies are cheap.

You may also like my article about the best dividend stocks from the title insurance industry. I still prefer, like Warren Buffett, the fastest growing companies from the insurance sector. Those are ACE, UNH and TRV.

What do you think about the screen?
