For analyzing any company like Alphabet from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. 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 cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.  Alphabet had cash and cash equivalents of $16.55B at the beginning of the quarter and $15.71B at quarter end for 2017-Q2.   GOOGL decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-10.02B for the latest 2017-Q2.
