This week, find the statement of cash flow for a firm of your choosing and report the cash flow ratios. Please report and discuss 3 years of ratios for the three ratios related to debt and dividends but only the current year’s cash flows per share. Show numerators and denominators for all ratios and then discuss their economic meaning. It is possible that your firm does not pay dividends (you will see dividends in the financing section of the cash flow statement).
The cash flow per share ratio is particularly challenging since most of the numbers in the statements are in thousands or millions (look at the top of the statement for a note) while the number of shares outstanding only for the current year (in yahoo.finance, under your firm’s page, look in “Key Statistics” and you will find the number of shares in the right-hand column about halfway down the page). You only have to report ONE YEAR on the cash flow per share. Please do not report on Nike, as that will be the firm posted as an example. Again, please do not duplicate firms by including the name of your chosen firm in the title to your post. Also, please respond to questions/comments from your instructor regarding your post.
