The Moody's cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Moody's 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 Moody's 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. The cash flow statement is essetial while conducting the Moody's cash flow analysis and can be used to measure the operating performance of Moody's compared to various industry peers like AXP stock and SYF stock. Moody's saw a inflow of $194M from investing activities for 2016. View details of Moody's cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.

While Moody's stock price history provides the price history of a stock, Moody's stock comparison chart shows the same in comparison to peers, and cash flow statements provide cash position of the company. Common terms used in the statement of cash flows are:
  • Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents: Moody's cash reduced YoY to $275.8M, meaning the company is unable to meet its expenditure and grow cash which will also eventually reflect in the Moody's stock price movement.
  • The cash generated from the core business or operations was positive at $1.23B for Moody's in the latest year. For an internet company, this would include all those activities which are involved in eventually selling advertisement space on its website or any online service.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was positive at $102M for MCO 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.
  • Inflow of cash in the form of bank loans and shareholders equity, and outflow of cash because of dividend payments, share repurchase payments etc. come under financing activities. The cash generated from these activities was $-1.01B for Moody's.
