The financial analysis of MSFT requires an investor to check the cash flows for Microsoft. 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Microsoft stock analysis. Microsoft had a positive net income cash flow of $4.69B for the latest quarter. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. MSFT increase in investments stood at a negative value of $-18.47B for the latest 2017-Q1. View details of Microsoft cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
