The Barclays cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Barclays 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 Barclays 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the Barclays stock analysis. Barclays generated $25.66B cash from operating activities in 2016-Q2.
