The Bell Industries cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Bell Industries 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 Bell Industries 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 Bell Industries stock analysis. Bell Industries had a negative net income cash flow of $-1.9M for the latest 2009. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Bell Industries had an outflow of $-3.4M from operating activities, $-0.58M spend due to financing activities, and $3.36M inflow due to investing activities for 2009.
