danlan2 Is C right?
MasterD C is not necessarily correct. A company with say 5 Million CFO with a 1M Capital Expenditures has a higher CFO/Cap than a company with 5 Million CFO and a 4 Million Cap Ex but clearly a lower capital-intensive firm.
bmeisner This question suggest the opposite of C. High cash flow to capex ratio suggests that significant capex is not needed for operations.
