The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like General Dynamics needs to disclose. 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in General Dynamics stock analysis. General Dynamics had a positive net income cash flow of $2.96B for the latest quarter. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. GD decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-426M for the latest 2016-Q4. View details of General Dynamics cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
