The Tesla cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Tesla 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 Tesla 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. Tesla stock analysis shows negative net income cash flow of $-553.57M for 2016-Q3. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   TSLA decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-821.67M for the latest 2016-Q3. View details of Tesla cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
