For analyzing any company like LPL Financial from an investment perspective, its important to check the cash flow statement. While its important to look at the LPL Financial 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 LPL Financial 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. LPL Financial cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. LPL Financial had cash and cash equivalents of $1.63B at the beginning of the quarter and $1.45B at quarter end for 2018 Q2.
