The General Dynamics 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 General Dynamics 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 General Dynamics 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. General Dynamics issued $1.26B worth of GD shares. The cash flow statement helps in the General Dynamics stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. General Dynamics had an outflow of $301M from operating activities, $2.09B inflow due to financing activities, and $626M spend due to investing activities for 2016.
