The financial analysis of CME requires an investor to check the cash flows for CME Group. While its important to look at the CME Group 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 CME Group 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the CME Group stock analysis. CME Group generated $1.33B cash from operating activities in till this quarter of 2017 Q3. CME Group saw a inflow of $200.8M from investing activities till 2017 Q3.
