Is Free Cash Flow really very close to Owner Earnings?
A company with 4bn cash from operations could invest 3bn in its own PPE (to grow, not only to "maintain")or acquire another company for 3bn. In the first case, Free Cash Flow is 1bn, in the latter 4bn, a multiple of 4.
(1) Is there a way to quantify the portion of PPE investment that is for growth instead of "maintenance"?
(2) Do you give credit for the "growth" portion of PPE investment or do you use strictly "Free CF = Cash from Operations - CapEx" throughout your calculations (ie your DCF number)?
Many thanks for your help (your website is by far the best that I have seen)!!
