The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Lear needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Lear 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 Lear 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. Lear stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $557M for 2016-Q2. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   LEA decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-131.2M for the latest 2016-Q2. View details of Lear cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
