The Apple cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Apple debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Apple revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. The cash flow statement is essetial while conducting the Apple cash flow analysis and can be used to measure the operating performance of Apple compared to various industry peers like HPQ stock and LNVGY stock. Apple saw a inflow of $10.3B from investing activities for 2016. View details of Apple cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.

Apple stock comparison chart provides an easy way to compare the stock price with peers along with details of Apple stock price history.
The statement of cash flows can be categorized into three main sections:
  • Apple saw a decrease in Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents from $7.28B in 2015 to $-636M in 2016. Apart from the Apple stock price, this is one of the things an investor looks for, as it shows the net change in cash on hand for a company, compared to previous period.
  • Cash Flow from operating activities: This is the cash that the company receives from ongoing operations. Apple lost $15.44B cash from operations. It is important to check this to see where the company is getting its money from.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-45.98B for AAPL stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: The cash inflow/outflow from financing activities was $-20.48B for Apple. The money accounted for under this head comes from external sources which includes lenders, investors and shareholders. Positive cash flow is generated when the company gets cash because of issuance of stocks or bonds. Similarly negative cash flow is generated when shares are repurchased, dividend payments are made, and loans or interest on loans are paid back.
