The Meta Financial cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Meta Financial 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 Meta Financial 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 Meta Financial stock analysis. Meta Financial had a positive net income cash flow of $44.91M for the latest 2017. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. CASH decrease in investments stood at a value of $-700.43M for the latest year 2017.
