In a DCF Calculation Free Cash Flow is used to determine the intrinsic value of companies.


Be Aware

In real business, Free Cash Flow can be affected by the change in accounts receivable, accounts payable, management’s decision on expansion, etc. Therefore, investors should look at the Free Cash Flow over the longer term.
