Hed 5 Free Cash flow Powerhouses NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- So many investors focus on earnings per share or EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, deductions and amortization) as a key measure of a company's profitability. But it's an open secret that these numbers can be fudged by accountants that are looking to "meet their number." Besides, those profits may not mean much if a company has little left over after paying for capital spending.That's why it pays to look at free cash flow, which is operating cash flow minus capital expenditures. Positive free cash flow means real money is coming in the door, fattening up the balance sheet in the process.
