The Microsoft cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Microsoft 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 Microsoft 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. Microsoft cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.  Microsoft had cash and cash equivalents of $5.6B at the beginning of the year and $6.51B at year end for 2016.   Microsoft has a positive cash and cash equivalents change of $915M.
