The financial analysis of AAPL requires an investor to check the cash flows for Apple. While its important to look at the Apple 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 Apple 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. Apple had cash and cash equivalents of $21.12B at beginning of year and $20.48B at year end for 2016. Apple cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. The cash from operating activities for Apple is $65.82BĀ for 2016, which saw a decrease of -19% from previous year. View details of Apple cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.
