The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Alphabet needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Alphabet 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 Alphabet 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. Alphabet purchased $1.91B worth of GOOGL shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Alphabet stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Alphabet has a negative cash and cash equivalents change of $-3.63B. View details of Alphabet cash flows for latest & last 10 financial years
