The financial analysis of LECO requires an investor to check the cash flows for Lincoln Electric. While its important to look at the Lincoln Electric 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 Lincoln Electric 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.

Lincoln Electric had cash and cash equivalents of $326.7M at the beginning of the quarter and $357.09M at quarter end for 2018 Q2.
