The statement of cash flows comprises of cash flow from financing, cash flow from operations and cash flow from investing activities. All the three can have an impact on the stock price. The Sotheby's stock price history and Sotheby's stock comparison chart inevitably reflect its cash flow situation.
  • Sotheby's has cash of $514.85M on hand. A healthy amount of cash on hand is necessary for any company. Cash has an opportunity cost associated with it, and too much cash in bank may mean that the firm has no or limited growth plans. Hence its important to track the Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents along with the Sotheby's stock price.
  • Cash Flow from operating activities: This is the cash that the company receives from ongoing operations. Sotheby's lost $175.87M cash from operations. It is important to check this to see where the company is getting its money from.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was positive at $70.84M for BID stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: The cash inflow/outflow from financing activities was $-35.85M for Sotheby's. The money accounted for under this head comes from external sources which includes lenders, investors and shareholders. Positive cash flow is generated when the company gets cash because of issuance of stocks or bonds. Similarly negative cash flow is generated when shares are repurchased, dividend payments are made, and loans or interest on loans are paid back.
