Cash Flow on Capex

Another ratio S&P Analyst Richard Tortoriello recommends using is 'Operating Cash Flow to capital expenditure'. ('Quantitative Strategies for Achieving Alpha') This ratio is used by analysts to determine a company's ability to fund operations.

A rising cash flow to capital expenditures ratio might indicate that the company is in a position to grow.

Please note that some industries are more capital-intensive than others, which should be considered when evaluating companies.
