The Bank of America cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Bank of America 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 Bank of America 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. Bank of America purchased $3.69B worth of BAC shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Bank of America stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Bank of America saw a outflow of $50.75B from investing activities for 2015. View details of Bank of America cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.
