Dividends4Life: How Capital Senior Living Is Making You So Much Cash

When you are trying to buy the market's best stocks, it's worth checking up on your companies' free cash flow once a quarter or so, to see whether it bears any relationship to the net income in the headlines. That's what we do with this series. Today, we're checking in on Capital Senior Living (NYSE: CSU). Over the past 12 months, Capital Senior Living generated $34.1 million cash while it booked a net loss of $3.1 million. That means it turned 11.2% of its revenue into FCF. That sounds pretty impressive.

With questionable cash flows amounting to only -4.1% of operating cash flow, Capital Senior Living's cash flows look clean. Within the questionable cash flow figure plotted in the TTM period above, stock-based compensation and related tax benefits provided the biggest boost, at 5.3% of cash flow from operations. Overall, the biggest drag on FCF came from capital expenditures, which consumed 26.5% of cash from operations.
