Free cash flow per share

Free cash flow per share measures the amount of cash spun off by a business. It is calculated as total free cash flow, divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the measurement period. A significant amount of free cash flow per share, and especially when it is trending up, indicates that a business has sufficient cash to pay down debt, acquire assets, pay dividends, and so forth.
