The Mizuho Financial cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Mizuho 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 Mizuho 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Mizuho Financial stock analysis. Mizuho Financial had a positive net income cash flow of $7.2B for the latest 2018. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Mizuho Financial saw a outflow of $-20.85B from investing activities for 2018.
