Capitalized cash flow method

Hi folks,

Why cant the capitalized cash flow method be used for public companies, but rather only for private companies?

Capitalized cash flow method(CCM) is a way to value an established company which is expected to have a consistent growth rate and positive cash flows.Obviously, it is suitable for publicly-traded Mature company with the same characteristics.It is not a problem for public companies or private companies,but just a common practice…

You can. It’s called the Single-Stage FCFF/FCFE model in the Free Cash Flow reading.
