The financial analysis of APA requires an investor to check the cash flows for Apache. While its important to look at the Apache 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 Apache 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the Apache stock analysis. Apache generated $2.43B cash from operating activities in 2017. APA decrease in investments stood at a value of $-1.42B for the latest year 2017.
