The Sotheby's cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Sotheby's 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 Sotheby's 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 Sotheby's stock analysis. Sotheby's had a positive net income cash flow of $74.11M for the latest quarter. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. BID decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-120.41M for the latest 2016-Q4. View details of Sotheby's cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
