The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Facebook needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Facebook 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 Facebook 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. The cash flow statement helps in the Facebook stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Facebook has a positive cash and cash equivalents change of $4B. View details of Facebook cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
