The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Alphabet needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Alphabet 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 Alphabet 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. Alphabet stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $19.48B for 2016-Q4. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   Alphabet had an inflow of $9.41B from operating activities, $892M spend due to financing activities, and $4.7B spend due to investing activities for 2016-Q4.
