    FAST: Poor cash flow generation

    FAST has generated barely $125Mn of cash over the last twelve months. This is just $0.42 per share, which means the stock is trading at 85x FCF! Accounts receivable is up a whopping 27% over the last year, and the cash balance keeps coming down. This is unsustainable. Even at an aggressive 25x multiple, this is a $30 stock at best.
