Investors always try to hit the jackpot while picking stocks. But striking the right chord each time is not easy unless you are blessed with Midas touch. When it comes to the investment market, experts consider value style as one of the most effective approaches. There are different valuation metrics to determine a stock’s inherent strength but a random selection of ratios cannot serve your purpose if you want a realistic assessment of a company’s financial position. For this, we recommend Price to Cash Flow (or P/CF) as one of the key metrics. This metric evaluates the market price of a stock relative to the amount of cash flow that the company is generating on a per share basis – the lower the number, the better. Then again, a negative cash flow implies a decline in the company’s liquidity, which in turn lowers its flexibility to support these moves.

MetLife Sparks The One Conversation You Need to Have to Help Make the Most of Your Annual Enrollment Period

MET

Annual enrollment is the most important time of the year for people to think about their financial needs – and how benefits can help protect their income from planned – or unexpected – life events. With medical expenses as the number one source of personal bankruptcy filings in the U.S., and with more than half of employees, 52%, report living paycheck to paycheck, most individuals cannot afford even the most minor of unexpected healthcare-related expenses. Having just one meaningful conversation about benefits with someone you trust can make the difference between experiencing serious financial stress and achieving your most important goals in life. While uncomfortable at times, by discussing what we want to happen in our lives and what can get in the way, the better we can be at navigating life's twists and turns. About MetLife: MetLife, Inc., through its subsidiaries and affiliates ("MetLife"), is one of the world's leading financial services companies, providing insurance, annuities, employee benefits and asset management to help its individual and institutional customers navigate their changing world.
