W.W. Grainger, Inc. EV/Operating CF

EV/Operating CF of GWW for past 10 years: annual, quarterly and twelve month trailing (TTM) including EV/Operating CF growth rates and interactive chart. A valuation metric that measures the enterprise value of a company compared to its operating cash flow. Operating cash flow (OCF) is the amount of cash generated by a company's normal business operations. It can be different from reported net income due to accrual accounting, that is expenses and revenues are recognized differently than cash is received. The cash going in and out of the business is what ultimately determines its financial health, so it's one of the most important metrics to watch. A low EV/OCF ratio can indicate undervaluation, while a high one might mean the growth expectations around the company are elevated. EV/OCF ratio can be compared to different companies in the same industry or to a company’s own historical valuation.
