While Amazon stock price history provides the price history of a stock, Amazon stock comparison chart shows the same in comparison to peers, and cash flow statements provide cash position of the company. Common terms used in the statement of cash flows are:
  • Amazon had a Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents of $1.33B for the latest year 2015. If a firm is able to grow its cash, it is considered to be a positive signal and could lead to a jump in the Amazon stock price , albeit too much cash on hand can imply the company has no or limited avenues for growth in which to invest this cash.
  • The cash generated from the core business or operations was positive at $11.92B for Amazon in the latest year. For an internet company, this would include all those activities which are involved in eventually selling advertisement space on its website or any online service.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-6.45B for AMZN 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.
