The cash flow of a company reflects the actual cash flows over a certain period of time. Compared to the KGV, the KCV is less susceptible to measures of the balance cosmetics. The KCV thus provides information about how the price of a company is related to its liquidity. The price / cash flow ratio can therefore be used to assess the performance of a stock corporation. On average across a broad stock market, KCV values between 15 and 18 are considered fair. Low values are considered good.
