The financial analysis of GFA requires an investor to check the cash flows for Gafisa. While its important to look at the Gafisa 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 Gafisa 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. Gafisa stock analysis shows negative net income cash flow of $-153.04M till 2017 Q3. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Gafisa had an inflow of $63.55M from operating activities, $-131.25M spend due to financing activities, and $106.22M inflow due to investing activities till 2017 Q3.
