Cash is king, and the Canadian gold miners on our list will give it to you
SmallCapPower | June 30, 2017: The free cash flow yield is a metric to evaluate the return you will likely get on a stock given the current market price, assuming free cash flow stays constant. It is also a valuation metric, which is useful when comparing the free cash flow yields on multiple companies. A high yield is good because it means you are paying less for the company’s cash flow relative to the other companies. Today we have identified four Canadian gold miners that have high free cash flow yields.
