### 20 Cheap Dividend Growth Stocks By Free Cash Flow

Price earnings ratios are calculated on accounting principals. A better figure to evaluate the real financial power of a company is the Free Cash Flow.
Attached, I've compiled the 20 cheapest Dividend Contenders by P/FCF Ratio.

What does this ratio mean? For example, if the stock price for two companies is \$25 per share and one company has a cash flow of \$5 per share (25/5=5) and the other company has a cash flow of \$10 per share (25/10=2.5), then if all else is equal, the company with the higher cash flow (lower ratio, P/CF=2.5) has the better value. Also like a P/E ratio, the lower the number, the better. Currently, the average Priceto Cash Flow (P/CF) for the stocks in the S&P 500 is 14.05. But just like the P/Eratio, a value of less than 15 to 20 is generally considered good.

What is the difference between cash flow and free cash flow? Cash flow refers to a stream of revenue or expense that alters a cash account over a specified time frame. Free cash flow (FCF) is a measure of a business's financial performance. It is calculated as the difference between cash flow and capital expenditures.

Here are the results:

The idea to create Factbooks and Fact Excel Sheets was born when I were looking for free aggregated information on the web. As a student of economics, I had not much money to buy the expensive S&P Stock and Bond Guides by McGraw-Hill to educate myself. I must put all my efforts into research and web search. Finally I needed to put all information into one Word and Excel file.

The Dividend Yield Factbooks and Excel Sheets inform students and other persons with a great desire for big data of stock fundamentals and worldwide yields from corporations.

A small donation from you can help me to develop this books and improve the quality of the work. Together we can make the world a better and smarter place. A place with no information advantage between poor and rich persons who have enough budget to buy the expensive data from Reuters and Bloomberg.
