For analyzing any company like Baidu from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. While its important to look at the Baidu 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 Baidu 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. Baidu stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $5.01B for 2015. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   Baidu had an inflow of $107.36M from operating activities, $187.27M spend due to financing activities, and $1.21B spend due to investing activities for 2015.
