Cash has an opportunity cost associated with it, and too much cash in bank may mean that the firm has no or limited growth plans. Hence its important to track the Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents along with the Alphabet stock price.
  • Cash Flow from operating activities: Alphabet reported a positive operating cash flow of $36.04B for 2016 and has seen an increase from the previous year. Operating cash flow or working capital comes from main business activities. Investors look for positive cash flow from recurring operating activities.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-31.17B for GOOGL stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: Financing activities include the cash that comes into a company in the form of loans or interest earned or shareholders money, as well as the cash that goes out. Alphabet spent $4.66B from financing activities,in the form of repayment of loans or interest paid, dividend pay-out to shareholders etc.
