For analyzing any company like Fortune Brands from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. While its important to look at the Fortune Brands 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 Fortune Brands 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. Fortune Brands stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $74.9M till 2018 Q1. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Fortune Brands has a negative cash and cash equivalents change of $-78.6M.
