The financial analysis of ESLT requires an investor to check the cash flows for Elbit Systems. While its important to look at the Elbit Systems 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 Elbit Systems 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. Elbit Systems stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $170.69M till 2017 Q3. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Elbit Systems saw a outflow of $-83.8M from investing activities till 2017 Q3.
